Questions & Answers
Foscarini Big Bang Chandelier
Pictures don't do this lamp justice
LosCA from Scottsdale, AZ– Verified Buyer
As the title states, pictures of the lamp online do not do it justice. Once installed, in the proper environment, this lamp is amazing. Great for placing in living or dining rooms. Mine is in the living room and it becomes a focal point & an instant conversation piece. It's amazing how well the lamp blends in, yet at the time stands out. I think this is partly because I purchased the all white version. The red version would just pop at all times...a bit too much for me, however, in the proper environment it would be great too.

It's a pretty cool looking chandelier, but looks much more hard, edgy, and plasticky than the pictures.
Not good....says it all
Marc from Dallas, TX– Verified Buyer
Purchased the chandelier from the clearance center but the light that arrived was the wall light. The light is constructed of numerous white translucent panels attached to a main panel.[...] The panels and therefore the light were far cheaper looking in person than in pics.

The Foscarini keynote is research, into forms and materials, as well as ideas. Established in 1981 in Venice, Foscarini started out by exploring the opportunities offered by Murano glass. The management assures brand identity and coherence by careful conservation of its Murano heritage, whilst being ever ready to consider new objectives and to exercise its rare capacity for talent scouting.
The company works with both established designers who've created new trends and with younger, emerging exponents of alternative styles and approaches. This makes for a highly original catalogue and one of the most varied in the sector. Over the years, the range of materials used has expanded to include satin-finished glass, polyethylene, wood and aluminium, as well as patented materials such as an exclusive textured glass-tissue and carbone fibre composite.
