by Lluís Porqueras , 1979
For Lluís Porqueras, designing consisted of eliminating the superfluous
until an essential object was left: beautiful, useful and simple. This was the
case with the Funiculí, a 1979 lamp that Marset reissued in 2013 and which
has become an emblem of the collection.
Lightweight, it takes up almost no space and can function as an ambient
lamp or for direct light, depending on how you direct the beam. Its
designer released the shade to give maximum mobility. It can rotate
through 360 degrees to focus the light where you want and also has a
double clamp system for height adjustment. For the Funiculí, 40 years are
nothing; it has stood the test of time and now comes in new colours that
further expand its possibilities. It is no longer only available in the neutrals
moss grey, black and off-white.
The new colours – green, terracotta and mustard – are intense. They are
design statements, highlighting the shapes of the Funiculí and bringing
chromaticism to the space. The new shades are cheerful and vivid,
conveying that colour can also be essential.
The new terracotta Funiculí brings chromatism to the space. A lamp
where everything superfluous has been eliminated, leaving a
lightweight and useful design, that can function as ambient or direct
light, and allows to adjust the height of the lamp.
