Foscarini Caboche, Big Bang and More

Foscarini is an Italian lighting company established in 1981 and set up on the Murano Island of Venice, Italy. Its first collection of lighting was designed by Carlo Urbinati and Alessandro Vecchiato who went on to become the company’s owners and managers in 1988.Read More

The company’s first collaborations with external designers produced designs such as “Wassily off the Wall” by Adam Tihany and Joseph Mancini but it wasn’t until their 1990 collaboration with Rodolfo Dordoni leading to the production of the Lumiere collection that the company had its first significant commerical successes.

In 1992 the company started using exciting new production techniques involving industrial glass and this is a recurring theme that has evolved through to the current day, also evident in the current Diesel Foscarini ranges, back then the first lamp was Ferruccio Laviani’s Orbital and this was closely followed in 1993 with experiments using new materials like Polythene as seen in the Havana collection by Joseph Forakis.

In the nineties other developments included expanding and relocating the factory to Marcon, and in 1996 Foscarini being the first company within the lighting industry to be awarded ISO 9001. In 2000 and in conjunction with Marc Sadler the Mite and Tite lighting collections were launched which went on in 2001 to win the Compasso d’Oro for bold technological innovation.

In 2003 the new Foscarini facility was inaugurated in Marcon Venice, and later in 2005 the company begins working with Patricia Urquiola & Eliana Gerotto, this is followed by great success with the Foscarini Twiggy lamp by Marc Sadler and the Foscarini Gregg series by Roberta Palomba.

Further exciting developments in technology and design resulted in the development of the Tress range by Marc Sadler and later Le Soleil by Vicente Garcia. In 2008 Foscarini sponsor the Venice Biennale Exhibition, and this is followed in 2009 by the joint licensing agreement between Foscarini and Diesel leading to the home collection and lifestyle project.

Moving forwards Foscarini becomes the official sponsor of the Venice Art and Architecture Biennial through to the current year (now in its 55th year) which confirms the company’s commitment to supporting cultural excellence and its connection with contemporary expressive art and design movements.

On the occasion of Euroluce in 2011 the company launch 15 new models including 4 with Diesel which are showcased in a Ferruccio Laviani designed multimedia booth.

Recent work includes the 2013 launch of 2 new showrooms in Milan and New York, designed to go beyond the traditional parameters of ordinary showrooms, these spaces aim to reflect the true creativity and innovation which form the core values of the company’s ethos.
