About Foscarini

The Italian company Foscarini has made a name for itself with high quality designer lamps. Founded in 1981 on the Venetian island of Murano Foscarini initially concentrated on the traditions of the local glass art, however, also embodied from the beginning a spirit of of experimentation and thus quickly moved on to other production processes and materials. Thus the Foscarini portfolio is today characterised by different materials ranging from, for example, the award-winning concrete hanging lamp aplomb to the luxurious glass ball studded Caboche Sospensione. Now located on the Venetian mainland in Marcon Foscarini is today a sort of "research workshop", which is focused on developing new products: projects which embody a formal, technical or substantive innovation. In cooperation with contemporary design talents such as Jozeph Forakis - who designed the floor lamp Havana for Foscarini, and which has already found its way into the collections of the MoMA New York and the Centre Pompidou Paris - Foscarini continue to develop a modern designer lamp collection that is as diverse as it technically sophisticated.
