New Buds are a series of pendant lights created by Rodolfo Dordoni for Foscarini. Made from blown glass there are three in the range in complementary colours of grey (New Buds 1), ivory (New Buds 2) and amber (New Buds 3). Hang independently or in clusters for visual impact.
As with most Foscarini suspension lights New Buds are available in two versions - a single version which comes with its own canopy/ceiling rose or without a ceiling rose. The latter version is designed to be used with one of the three separate canopies available for multiple fittings, depending on the configuration required and area over which they are to hang:
90cm Linear - maximum fittings : New Buds 1 - 6; New Buds 2 - 4; New Buds 3 - 5 - at staggered positions
135cm Linear - maximum fittings : New Buds 1 - 9; New Buds 2 - 9 ;New Buds 3 - 8 - at staggered positions
Round Canopy - maximum fittings : New Buds 1 - 6; New Buds 2 - 6; New Buds 3 - 6 - at staggered positions
Lights are available with a standard 1.9m cable and suspension wire or 5m for extra high ceilings. A 'decentralisation' kit is also available which enables you to position the light off-centre to the main canopy (single canopy lights only) - ideal if your electricity feed cables don't lie immediately above where you want the light to be positioned.
