Design by Enrico Franzolini with Vicente and Garcia Jimenez, 2005.
The Big Bang Chandelier has an exuberant personality the bursts forth from its core. Overlapping panels angled in all directions give Big Bang Chandelier a powerful, structural and luminous body characterized by a play of shadow and light, with great visual impact. The many panels made of methacrylate serve as translucent diffusers while this chandelier also provides an intense, vivid and direct light.
Select from White or two-tone White/Red version.
Bulbs: 1 X 200W 120V R7S 118mm linear halogen lamp (not included)
Jaw dropping, service and product

Fell in love with Foscarini's Big Bang chandelier, read reviews and tested the waters for ordering at YLiving. Fortunately, my call was answered by a most knowledgable and helpful gentleman named Blair, who knew more about the light and the difference between products ordered from over seas and those ordered from the states. My light was delivered quickly, the packing and product were superb. I would order from them again in a heartbeat!

Enrico Franzolini began his career as an artist and his work was known for its expression of sculptural elegance and an aesthetic refinement. He exhibited work at the Venice Biennale, as well as other exhibitions and galleries in the 1970s and then turned to design and received a degree in architecture in 1979. Like Vico Magistretti and many other designers in Italy, Franzolini has been active across the spectrum of creative fields from fine art to architecture to the various arts of the craftsman. He uses a variety of materials – wood, metal and all the varieties of plastic – with confidence on both the large and small scale. Franzolini's work epitomizes the integrity, the technical innovation and the ingenious forms for which Italian design has long been admired. In addition to his pictorial research, he spreads his commitment between architecture and industrial design fields and over the years he has been collaborating with some of the most prestigious companies in the furniture industry such as Cappellini, Foscarini, Knoll International, Moroso, Pallucco.View other products by Enrico Franzolini
