Foscarini Havana Floor Lamp
Foscarini Havana Lamp
Debb from Albany, NY
This is a beautiful lamp! I was very pleased!!! Ultra modern.

This product is junk. Its worth $50, not [$]. First the cord is dangling out of the shade, it could have been designed so that the black cord runs through the inner supporting tube rather than outside, making it really prominent and ugly.The shades are cheap looking plastic.Connecting the shades are cheap little wire brackets that have the ascetic appeal of rubber bands.Overall the lamp looks like something cheap you'd find in a college dorm room.

The Foscarini keynote is research, into forms and materials, as well as ideas. Established in 1981 in Venice, Foscarini started out by exploring the opportunities offered by Murano glass. The management assures brand identity and coherence by careful conservation of its Murano heritage, whilst being ever ready to consider new objectives and to exercise its rare capacity for talent scouting.
The company works with both established designers who've created new trends and with younger, emerging exponents of alternative styles and approaches. This makes for a highly original catalogue and one of the most varied in the sector. Over the years, the range of materials used has expanded to include satin-finished glass, polyethylene, wood and aluminium, as well as patented materials such as an exclusive textured glass-tissue and carbone fibre composite.
