Lamps and Lighting by Foscarini

One aspect of my office that’s severely lacking is in the lighting department, I’m pretty fussy, as you can imagine, and I’ve had a problem finding good quality lights that don’t take up too much room.

Serge Mouille, Lighting Designer

As I was perusing through the usual subjects of mid-century design I stumbled across the ever so fantastic Serge Mouille, who seems to have had a recent web design update. Although not totally finished at the moment it looks like the studio will be releasing a publication of photography featuring Serge himself and exclusive imagery from inside the studio. As you know I’m pretty much a sucker for snaps of craftsman at work, so when I saw …
