wagashi ceiling lamp

Design Luca Nichetto + Gianpietro Gai, 2007
Fireproof fabric, metal structure
Made in Italy by Foscarini

Poetry and functionality are the distinctive characteristics that sum up the values of Wagashi, fruit of the combination and synthesis of two disciplines and two different sensitivities to concept development.

The particularity and originality of the shape, chosen by designer Luca Nichetto, is masterfully dressed by the hand of the artist-photographer Massimo Gadone, resulting in wall and ceiling lamps that are perfect for characterizing and furnishing surfaces and able to offer outstanding lighting performance. A poetic match between design and photography.

Genikdesign was born in 1999 from Gianpietro Gai and Luca Nichetto, formerly of "mobile design laboratory". From 1999 to present they have been producing furniture and lighting for renowned companies worldwide. In 2005 they founded "Spunklab" design group in Venice. In September 2005 "Genikdesign" settled in Treviso, Italy.

The Wagashi series guarantees excellent, uniform light diffusion. Each lamp consists of a metal structure dressed in fireproof fabric with photographic images printed using a sublimation technique. Available in three sizes and your choice of designs.

Riccardo Olivieri set up Foscarini Spa in Murano in 1981. Two years later, they debuted their catalog, with lamps from Carlo Urbinati and Allesandro Vecchiato, who would become the company’s managers by 1988. Eventually these new owners would move the company off the island and into Venice, as well as transition Foscarini from a glassworks shop to a major design competitor. They had already begun working with external designers in 1985, but their first success came in 1990 with Rodolfo Dordoni’s “Lumiere.” Most all lighting projects were made of glass until 1993, at which point the Havana lamp primarily used polyethylene, making it lighter, more cost-effective, and able to be used indoors and outdoors. It now resides in the MoMA in New York. Other successful lamps would come to define the company, such as the “Mite & Tite” series by Marc Sadler in 2000 (which earned a Compasso d’oro), Patricia Urquiola’s 2005 “Caboche,” and Marc Sadler’s signature lamp "Twiggy."
