Design by Enrico Franzolini with Vicente and Garcia Jimenez, 2005.
The apparently casual pattern with which the composition of irregular planes creates a volume around the light source, determines the dynamic character of Big Bang's exuberant personality. A powerfully structural luminous body, characterized by a play of shadow and light, with great visual impact yet airy in appearance, it is ideal for personalizing rooms in any style, even when used alone. It provides an intense, vivid and direct light. The panels that compose the lamp and function as translucent diffusers are made out of methacrylate and are available in white or in two-tone version: white/red.
Dimensions: 37.75" W X 78.75" H X 200" Overall Length
Lamp Type: HALOGEN
Bulbs: 1 X 200W 120V R7S 118mm linear halogen lamp (not included)
Listing: UL, CUL
Model(s): 151007-10 151007-63
Vicente Garcia Jimenez
Vicente Garcia Jimenez was born in Valencia, Spain in 1978. He graduated with a degree in Industrial Design from Castellon de la Plana and after graduation, moved to Barcelona where he collaborated with Santa & Cole. After developing a need to hone his creative skills, Jimenez went to Udine. There he set up his studio that collaborates with companies developing lighting and furniture.See other lights/products from Vicente Garcia Jimenez
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 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.See other lights/products from Enrico Franzolini
The Foscarini collection brings together objects that express strong ideas with special character of their own. Ideas are transformed into a tangible reality thanks to the contribution of leading personalities from the world of design. Foscarini lights up their creativity and guides their proposals.
The cornerstone of Foscarini is research into forms and materials. Established in 1981 in Venice. Foscarini started out by exploring the opportunities offered by Murano glass. Over the years, the range of materials used has expanded to include glass, polyethylene, wood and aluminum, as well as patented materials such as an exclusive textured glass and Kevlar ® or carbon fiber composite.

First the plusses:

Its a piece of art!
We love it, it is a stand-out piece in any room. The price point was good.

A beautiful piece of art that will make any room shine!
I love the fixture but it took my electrical contractor 3 hours to install. He a had a difficult time getting the fixture to hang centered between the wires. It is it worth it - YES!

Great fixture, makes a statement.
This is certainly a conversation piece. It hangs over my dining table, and I couldn't be happier. The Big Bang looks amazing!

this product is really sculpture.. beautiful. This was a "splurge" for our new condo but it is worth every penny. Transforms a room...

Handsome, effective, and makes a statement
We ordered a pair of these fixtures to light a large, cubic space bisected by a timber beam. They are handsome sculptures when off, and provide a significant amount of well-diffused light at night. Their multi-dimensional form provides interest to the eye from many angles, and each seems unique even when paired. In white, they are a presence against the white ceiling without being a distraction from the rest of the space.

Unique Contemporary Piece
Bold, geometric piece with modern kick. The large scale is perfect for the oversized kitchen island, given it's cleanability it's a perfect kitchen fixture. Great juxtaposition for a traditional dining room; versatile, bold, it will be received as art.

Looks like a sculpture hanging in my dining room. my kids are taking a while to get used to it, but it makes a really neat statement without overpowering the room. the bulb was very very difficult to get in.

this was not the quality we expected
While this was not the right color red it was also not the quality of material we had hoped for our dining room - we are returning it
By:stacie , Homeowner (NJ)
stunning piece of art
bought this after seeing the red version in a model condo unit and i would say that the white version is every bit as beautiful. a bit expensive--set up took 2 hours without any major complications. overall, very happy with the purchase and y-lighting.
By:jason , Homeowner (san francisco, california)
I am surprised that it came in pieces.
I am waiting for the electrician to come over, put it together and hang it. Only then can I give an informed opinion on this good looking , at least in the photograph, light fixture. Maybe when it's assembled it will be a five star rating.
By:Rowlands D. , Architect (Phoenix,AZ)
The price point seems high until Big Bang is installed and then -- WOW! It is truly transformative. I cannot stop staring at it so I figure I'm making back the cost by never leaving the house to spend money.
By:Chanco , Homeowner (central VA)
I love the way it looks. Wish it could be a bit brighter, but I am pleased
By:Soraya F. (Miami)
These lights are amazingly beautiful!
If you are looking for a piece of art to be suspended from your dinning room ceiling, then look no further. These lights are absolutely stunning and make a room! Given the unique architecture of my home they were a perfect find!
By:Nikki , Homeowner (Los Angeles)
It's very dramatic.
I love the shape of it. However, the red is much more orangy and bright than the photos. The photos make the red look deeper

A piece of art!
It's beautiful! A piece os art, indeed. But be careful with the height if your ceiling is low. the chandelier can be inconveniently low.
By:Vivian F M. , Homeowner (Salvador, Bahia, Brazil)
I was very hesitant about this light. Wrestled with the purchase for nearly three weeks before taking the plunge. Now that it's up, I could not be happier.
By:Ginaswork , Homeowner (Atlanta, GA)
This fixture is stunning. The effect is equally dramatic turned on or off, but a dimmer is recommended to take advantage of all it's effects! The scale is impressive, and it works well in open spaces to anchor and define the room. I don't have a high ceiling so it does hang slightly low, but at an appropriate height over a dining table.

Hanging Art Work
