INSPIRED BY THE GEOMETRY OF A LEAF ANDWITH AIR PURIFICATION ACRYLIC SCREENS ABLE TO BE MAGNETICALLY INTERCHANGE TOTHE STRUCTURE, FOGLIA IS THE ONLY ILLUMINATION SCULPTURE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO BETHE ARCHITECT IN ITS CREATIVITY AND OPENS UP INFINITE CUSTOMIZATIONS HORIZONS.
FOGLIA (meaning a leaf in Italian) was thefirst design every created by SUGO and perhaps the most significant and uniquein our collection. First conceived over 10 years ago when founder Kevin gotlost in a backpacking trip to central Thailand and there, he witnesses theethereal colour transformation of the banana plant under different lightingconditions. In awe of the seemingly surrealistic bombardment of shapes andcolours he decided that one day he needs to create a design object derived fromthis experience. FOGLIA was born in 2011 as the first itineration in SUGOdesign spirit and through many years of improvement and alterations, the finalproduction version came to life in 2018 with world first magneticinterchangeable acrylic screen system adapted to the design by SUGO's Italianresearch laboratory. This makes FOGLIA attain the most customization abilityunseen in the lighting, sculpture, and design industry.
The LIBELLULA limited edition is inspired bythe beautiful structure of the dragonfly wing and each of the acrylic screenstakes over 3 hours to be laser engraved as each of the pattern is extremelyintricate and all in non-repetitive geometry. The CAD software calculatedgrooves absorb any indirect light and creates a highly unique glowing patternthat seems to float in space. It is a design that becomes the centre piece inany interior and accentuate all elements around it.
