"There has always been something mysterious about a woman’s plaited hair. It is a signal, a rite, an enigma to be solved. Tress is a kind of plait and this light is an interweaving of fibreglass and resin that becomes a structure, a decoration and a screen. Simple? No. Intriguing? Yes. Tress was developed over a long period of time and underwent various phases of development, despite the fact that the material is the same as that used for Twiggy, another Foscarini icon created in partnership with Marc. Our idea was to use a ribbon instead of a sheet and to bind it with a process known as “rowing”, with studied casualness. For the first Tress prototypes we used a fine carbon ribbon, but we weren’t entirely satisfied with the effect. We then adopted a larger, thicker ribbon in fibreglass and resin to obtain a stable structure of an extraordinary material nature. – It is easier to add than to take away. We wanted a simple shape, without internal elements. We therefore designed a completely new solution to hide the electric cable, submerging it in the material of Tress, and making it an integral part of the weave. The result is a pure interplay of full and empty spaces, light and shade, inside and out. Tress is a study in material, form and
light. One of the aims of the design was to create a dual effect, with two light sources that can be turned on separately. A light source from below illuminates the whole light from within and underlines the graphic effect of the weave, projecting designs of shade and signals of light. The internal surface appears much clearer than the external one, which creates further contrast. An upper light source emanates light towards the ceiling, to light the whole space. Tress creates a unique, warm, magical atmosphere that enriches the whole space. Colour also transforms its personality: the white version renders it light and discrete, the black version makes it strong and decisive, while the red version transforms it into a volcanic, totemlike object, with an even more striking contrast between the inside and outside. Tress is a multiple interweaving of meanings: exciting to discover and wonderful to experience."
