As well as providing alluring illumination, La Flaca’s freestanding structure allows light to break up interior spaces and create a nuanced ambiance. The indoor/outdoor floor lamp starts with a lacquered stainless-steel structure that lends its shape to the wrinkle-free fabric, in one of 3 distinctive forms. Veteran Marset designer Christophe Mathieu installs an LED sphere within— only becoming visible when the fixture is turned on, emitting light that is softly filtered and transformed by the fabric.

“Marset is more than lamps: We take care of light in its different nuances and effects, to create atmospheres with character, helping to improve people’s quality of life,” declares the Barcelona-based company. Marset’s dual preoccupation with both crisp contemporary design and the more elusive ambiance of lighting has firmly fixed the firm on the design world’s cutting-edge radar. A series of attention-grabbing and innovative fixtures account for the recent revitalization of the brand, though Marset has actually been around since the 1940s.
A family business, Marset was originally a foundry, not a lighting company. It segued into lighting design when Francisco Marset formally established Marset Illuminacion in 1965. Decades devoted to metalwork easily translated to the contemporary lighting industry, with a dexterity of materials available to create unexpected, atmospheric lighting effects. Not to mention the influence of its Barcelona home, a city renowned for architecture, design and visual inspiration.
