A leading name in contemporary lighting designs, Foscarini Lighting strives to be “free, passionate, unconventional and right at the heart of the industry in which it thrives.” A technological and creative workshop that conceives, develops, and produces “not just lamps but pure emotions,” this brand stands out from the crowd with unmistakable character. Exploring an entire world of materials and solutions, Foscarini Lighting is a designing and technological tour de force. Inspiration is always valued and nurtured at Foscarini Lighting, but the development phase of the brand’s designs can sometimes take years. Progressive research is undertaken with every design, analysing the materials, shapes, processes, and operating modes involved with every design. Each of these factors can have a huge impact on the final product, and through this research Foscarini ensure the best options are chosen for each design – sometimes ever turning out drastically different from the initial concept. Foscarini Lighting have always focused on developing new products, but the only ones that make it past the development stage are the ones that express new ideas. These designs are imagined and created in collaboration with designers from all around the world. Foscarini Lighting's Havana design is constructed with a fresh, light weight appearance, recalling the shape of a cigar - where the design's inspiration is rooted, and the product to give the design its name. The soft light the Havana emits blends effortlessly and gracefully within the most varied of contexts. It's this universal suitability that makes the Havana the great success it is today. It's not just the design's popularity that speaks for this: the Havana is part of the permanent collection on exhibit at the New York Museum Of Modern Art (MoMA).
