Floral fascination with a spectacular lighting effect
The fascinating thing about the Marset Discocó
surely is the flower shape that lends it a natural appearance and makes it a captivating eye-catcher. The sophisticated design consists of thin, glossy lacquered plastic discs that are arranged like petals around the illuminant. This not only makes sure that a Discocó
gets its typical cone-shaped form which allows it to upgrade its surrounding area in an unparalleled way. The extraordinary construction also has a positive effect on the spectacular lighting mood
that is created by these Marset lights: the light is reflected multiple times by the opaque discs and is then emitted as a soft and absolutely glare-free light into all directions. However, this floral beauty is capable of even more: a chrome-plated sphere inside the Discocó produces further light reflections. This is also where the socket for the illuminant is located and which serves to firmly fix the discs by means of metal brackets.
Since in the case of the pendant and the ceiling lights the major part of the light is emitted downwards, they are ideally suited to provide for dining table lighting. Here, they effectively move food and drinks into the focus of attention and create a cosy atmosphere in the dining area that makes you want to stay. Even more: larger versions such as the Marset Discocó 88
also cut a fine figure in the living room where they, for instance, can be installed above the coffee table. Due to their harmonious lighting and the unique design they are also appreciated in the bedroom or in an entrance area such as a hall.
The incredible demand made the Discocó family grow: the pendant lights that are available with a diameter from 35 to 132 cm
were soon joined by a wall light and ceiling lights with a diameter of 53, 68 and 88 cm
. All lights can be ordered in different colours. The Marset light in white, beige or grey, for instance, unobtrusively blend into the interior decoration, while the black/golden version develops a virtually opulent presence. For these lights it is recommended to use halogen lamps which are known for a brilliant colour rendering.
The design of the Discocó
was penned by Christophe Mathieu. The shape borrowed from nature is considered as a tribute to the look of the 1960s and is an important feature of the timeless look of this lighting solution. The designer, born in the German city of Bonn in 1961, already collaborated with many other famous brands. For the Spanish traditional company Marset Iluminación the award-winning artist designed several spectacular objects.
