Design by Enrico Franzolini with Vicente and Garcia Jimenez, 2005.
By Foscarini.

The apparently casual pattern with which the composition of irregular planes creates a volume around the light source, determines the dynamic character of Foscarini 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.

Offered with 78 or 200" of suspension cable. Dimmable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A work of art A fantastic piece of art for our dining room. It does take a little work to hang but given the nature of the product I personally think that's to be expected. A wall dimmer is a must to get the best out of it and set a variety of moods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hanging Art Work This light is exactly what we were looking for to finish off our dining room...truly a statement piece....hanging art! Unlike a previous review, our diffusers don't have gaps between them and we don't see the little letters printed on them. If you put it together correctly both issues are non-issues since the letters face the inside of the fixture and the diffusers sit together snug. Was actually quite fun to assemble! Only complaint is that for a fixture of this price one would expect the bulb to be included!!! Not to mention the fact that the recommended wattage for the bulb is not something routinely carried at Home Depot or Lowes...it has to be special ordered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aptly named 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. The hard cleanable surface is nice too for real dusting and wipe down, I have other modern white molded lights that are much more difficult to clean. This light is one of my favorite things about my remodel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Illuminated Art 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. My Big Bang is hung over my dining room table. It's a statement piece - no doubt, in the most artful way. The light is gorgeous. I have mine on a dimmer and it looks stunning at full light, and - if possible - even moreso the dimmer it goes. A couple of technical things: there is a "front" to the light, in my opinion. The light has more of an elongated presence from the front - ever-so-slightly oblong. I've had two friends look at the light and agree. My electrician is coming back to turn the light 90 degrees so its "front" is facing my entryway. Secondly, the light fixture itself is white. White - not cream, and not off-white. This was my biggest hesitation about purchasing the light as I was concerned it would have a giant glaring WHITE presence and look cheap in my dining room. It looks anything but. Interestingly, the light takes on a softer, almost off-white tone at night, at least in my home. Simply beautiful. Foscarini Fan Atlanta, GA

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good item I love the way it looks. Wish it could be a bit brighter, but I am pleased

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! 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. Installation was effortless. I especially appreciated the miles of cable as BB hangs from our 25-ft living room ceiling.

Can this light be swagged?

Asked by: rwaldrondesings
Hi there, and thanks for your interest in this design. We do apologize, but this fixture does not come with a swag kit and is not designed for swagging because of the weight distribution and how delicate the translucent diffusers are. To discuss this fixture in greater depth, or to follow up with anything else, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we are more than happy to go over some options with you. Thanks for reaching out to us! Parin YLighting Customer Service

Can this light be mounted on a sloped ceiling?

Asked by: AnnaN
Hi there, and thanks for your interest in this popular fixture. So sorry, but this fixture cannot be installed on a sloped ceiling because the extremely delicate pieces of glass diffuser are safest and best-protected when oriented against a firm, flat, and stable plane. Be sure to visit the "specifications" tab on this product page and download the PDF manufacturer instruction sheets by clicking on the provided links in order to access some visual aids and product diagrams that may be helpful as well. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help! Parin YLighting Customer Service

This description says that the "diffuser" is 78 inches high. Is that correct? I need the dimensions of the chandelier itself. Thanks

Asked by: drlynn
Hey there! The minimum drop height this can have from ceiling to the bottom of the fixture is 78 inches, and the maximum is 92-1/8. The actual dimensions of the chandelier/diffuser are .37-3/4 inches wide (diameter) and 23-2/3 inches tall. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help! Stephanie, YLighting Team

I would love to hang this over my dining room table.  My ceiling height is 10'.  Can I shorten the drop on this fixture?  78" is way too long .   

Asked by: ljb213
Hey there! We seem to be missing the height of the diffuser, thank you for bringing this to our attention. We will update our site soon with the full dimensions of this. In the meantime, the pendant/diffuser actually measures 23.6 inches high and 37.7 inches wide. You certainly can adjust the cord in the field to suit the needs of your space. Please feel free to contact us anytime at 866.842.6209 with any further questions about this product, or to follow up with anything else. We're here to help! Stephanie, YLighting Team

Is the red a solid? In the photo it looks like it's red with white? Thanks

Asked by: luvmygirls
Hi there! This is red on the outside and white on the inside (side that faces the bulb) to maintain clear direct illumination as well as beautifully diffused light through the red. To discuss this fixture in greater depth, or to follow up with anything else, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we are more than happy to go over some options with you.

I have a very hight ceiling and would like to hang this lower than the wiring allows. Is it possible to rewire this? My contactor said it is sometimes possible to order a kit to allow it to be rewired with more length.
