The Funiculí is one Marset’s most emblematic lamps. Its design is over 30 years old, but is still just as modern and functional as the day it was designed. With its direct or indirect light, easily adjustable height and variety of bright and subdued colors, the Funiculí leaves little room for innovation. Yet there’s one avenue that remains unexplored.
Heir to the first Funiculí, this year we present a new version with a fabric shade, a design that Lluís Porqueras first conceived in 1979 but that is only now seeing the light of day. Respecting the initial design to the fullest, only its proportions have been updated.
In this new version, the cloth on the shade unlocks the light, allowing it to filter through and better illuminate the space. It shares the same structure as the original, so you can easily adjust the lamp to your desired height. The essence of both lamps continues to be their simplicity, but the new design is chic and classical, perhaps even more sophisticated than the original.
