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