13 — Foscarini
Fishing for lamps
Foscarini is a company that started in the same area near Venice in which the art of glassmaking was traditionally consolidated, including the historical manufacture of decorative chandeliers. Foscarini built its reputation on the making of lighting products. Collaboration with the design culture of figures like the designer Marc Sadler led Foscarini to create synergies with operators from different sectors by experimenting with the transfer of techniques and technologies to the sphere of light. From the use of glass resin, to Kevlar and to composites and concrete, Foscarini products relate their innovation process to a readiness to turn ideas into real products and to “investigate” the potentials of materials and technologies.
