The Independent Light
The Bicoca is born with the optimism of brightening life and accompanying the good times, wherever you go. This new colorful, lightweight portable lamp projects an intimate light that adds warmth to all your personal spaces. Made of polycarbonate, Bicoca begins with an overlay of basic geometric figures, with a tiltable shade to direct the light. Three separate accessories increase the applicability and versatility of the lamp.
A powerful magnet can be affixed to the bottom of the fixture, allowing you to place it to metal surfaces -even vertical walls- defying gravity. An armchair accessory drapes over armrests, sofa backs, or headboards, so you can bring your Bicoca to all your personal reading spaces. And a metallic disc accessory hides discreetly beneath the tablecloth, securing your Bicoca to the table. The wide range of shade colors provide an option for any taste and any space.
Bicoca is small, manageable, versatile and autonomous.

<p>His name is French and he was born in Germany, but his Spanish accent points to the Canary Islands, where he grew up. He reached Barcelona in the mid-1980’s to finish his degree in interior design. Soon afterward he headed to Milan, where he discovered industrial design collaborating with the architect Marco Zanuso jr. in the development of products for companies such as De Padova, Menphis and Driade; the architects Roberto Menghi y Giulio Crespi; the industrial designer Sergio Coppola and the architect Antonio Zanuso in the prize-winning project for the Piazza della Republica. His time in Milan had a profound effect on him.</p> <p>A restless man, he seems to carry those traveling genes of his Belgian ancestors who ventured to move to Spain in the 1960’s.</p> <p>With an architect and handyman father (he made lamps at home using the origami he learned while working in Germany), 30 years ago Christophe Mathieu transitioned from being a professional competitive swimmer to the world of design. He is open to unforeseen events in life and does not discount the possibility of one day maybe leaving it all and doing something totally different. Having lived in Barcelona for years now, he is one of Marset’s veteran designers and has created several successful products for the company.</p>
