Marset nods to the longevity of its signature adjustable Funiculí in an added floor lamp, this time with a fabric shade. With its novel double-clip mechanism, the handsome black lacquered iron light can be set to the desired height —an elegantly simple tack from its original designer Lluís Porqueras. Available in sand or white, the shade can be positioned for either direct or indirect illumination and emits a brightly filtered glow.

“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.
