Design Story

The Design

With its lushly studded shade of transparent or gold yellow glass balls the pendant lamp Caboche Sospensione by Patricia Urquiola and Eliana Gerotto is reminiscent of a precious pearl bracelet. Since its launch in 2005 it has gone on to become one of the best sellers for the Italian manufacturer Foscarini and has become an icon among contemporary lamp designs. The peculiarity of the Caboche Sospensione is that both the shape of the lamp as well as its sparkling-bright light effect arise from the the annularly arranged balls made of transparent acrylic glass. As if broken by countless crystals, the illumination from the Foscarini Caboche Sospensione shines throughout the room and is reflected from the ceiling. Despite its striking design, thanks to its colour neutrality the Caboche Sospensione provides a discreet, almost ostentatious, accent in any private or public space.

Caboche Sospensione from Foscarini


Patricia Urquiola was born in 1961 in Oviedo, Spain and studied at the Faculdad de Arquitectura de Madrid and then at the Milan Polytechnic Architecture, where she completed her doctorate in 1989. During her subsequent work as an assistant teacher at the ENSCI, a School of Industrial Design in Paris, she produced her first furniture designs. From 1990 she worked for De Padova, before become director of the design team at Lissoni Associati in 1996, and has in addition worked independently for many other design firms. In 2001 she founded her own design studio through whom she cooperates with many Italian and international manufacturers - such as Moroso, for which she created the exotic Tropicalia chairs. Eliana Gerotto was born in Venice. Initially trained as a commercial artist, she graduated at the Fondazione Davide Campari in Milan and has since worked in various fields including graphic, industrial and set designer as well as an interior designer.

Foscarini develops modern lamp designs

Caboche Sospensione piccola in transparent und yellow gold


The Italian lighting manufacturer Foscarini produces the Caboche Sospensione as piccola, media and grande versions, optionally available with transparent or yellow gold coloured balls ago. Formed from polymethyl methacrylate and in the media and grande version are mounted on a polycarbonate crown mounted on a chrome plated metal frame. The innermost shade (in the Piccola the only) is made of etched blown glass, the lower diffuser in satin opal glass. The media and grande versions are equipped with three stainless steel suspension cables, the Foscarini Caboche piccola with one. All electric cables are transparent. The ceiling rose consists of a galvanized metal hook covered with ABS plastic. The production of all Foscarini lamps is realised according to the criteria of the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 quality and environmental management certificates.

Patricia Urquiola and Eliana Gerotto designed the Caboche Sospensione lamp.


Established in 1981 on the Venetian island of Murano the lamp manufacturer Foscarini embodies innovation: and accordingly only those designs are realised which represent a novelty in some way - be it formal, technical or material. Independent of specific production processes from the very outset, the Foscarini "research workshop" has developed a diverse portfolio of contemporary designs including a number of iconic objects such as the Havana floor lamp by Jozeph Forakis - a work represented in the collections of the MoMA and the Centre Pompidou - and new, innovative, designs as the award-winning light aplomb by Lucidi & Pevere. The longevity of these and the company's many other designs conform with Foscarini's understanding of sustainability as well as the observance of environmental standards in the manufacturing process: as one of the first Italian lamp manufacturers Foscarini received in 2012 UNI EN ISO 14001 certification.
