What made us chose this light is that it is just what I had in mind as far as shape goes. It's simple and elegant and it fits the bill for us!
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 or Kevlar R.
