Twice Light Project Illuminates Intimate Moment Strangers Connect
A giant light fixture from Italian lighting company Foscarini serves as facilitator for two people who've never met
During 2015 NYCxDesign, artist Gianluca Vassallo and Italian lighting company Foscarini collaborated on a project to unite strangers in New York City. Twice Light is a photography project that documents the moment when two people who have never met connect. The photos were taken in various public spaces around NYC and include one other constant character, Twiggy.
Designed in 2006 by Marc Sadler, Foscarini have introduced a colossal version of the popular floor lamp called ‘Twice as Twiggy.' Scaled for use in large spaces, the lamp creates an intimate area directly underneath the shade that Vassallo has used for each photo.
