Previewed in 2019 at the Salone del Mobile, WireLine is now available for the global market.

The project was born as an evolution of the concept that led to Formafantasma’s successful WireRing in 2017, which, according to designers Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin, aimed to ‘turn the power cable into a key element to generate the form – an aesthetic, iconic and performative aspect of the piece in a space.’

Wireline uses the power cable as an essential aesthetic feature. Made of rubber and flattened to look like a strap, the cable hangs delicately from the ceiling and supports a sophistication piece of grooved glass, which contains and diffuses the LED light source.

Available in pink and forest green, Wireline can be installed as a single piece or in a composition of several to create an elaborate centre-piece arrangement within large spaces.

‘Every author has an obsession. Ours is light,’ explains Andrea and Simone. ‘We explored it with independent projects and then with Flos, first with WireRing and now WireLine.

‘What we love about light is that it is intangible, but also technical and emotional. It is one of the few fields of design has been recently completely transformed by an important technological innovation: LEDs have changed the rules of the game in terms of design, use and human experience.’
