O-SPACE, suspension lamp (with Luca Nichetto) | FOSCARINI spa

Subject of months of studies and research on materials aided by the technicians and mold makers, this lamp was the first lamp Foscarini in rigid polyurethane foam. It's main features are the peculiar system for diffusing light and a wiring embedded in the material, similarly to "reinforced polyurethane" used in chairs production. Some curious facts, finally: first of all, this lamp was originally thought to be spherical, but to give it a more dynamic aspect it was finally decided with Foscarini owner, to "crush it"; furterly, if the styling was rather "immediate", studies on materials took a long time, but they played a key role.
It was and remains one of the most succesfull and iconic pieces by Foscarini.
