toobe table lamp

toobe table lamp

Design Ferruccio Laviani, 2007
Polycarbonate, dyed PMMA
Made in Italy by Kartell

Toobe is the first floor lamp for Kartell, a master key that completes the lamp family. Toobe by Ferruccio Laviani was conceived from the idea that the use of a PMMA extruded tube could, according to length, become either a floor or table lamp. Toobe is the first Kartell product to be "faded" to permit a special light to be diffused within the cylinder. The line is simple and modern. The handle in the lamp body makes the pole functional and easy to move.

As an architect and designer, Ferruccio Laviani works in the fields of furnishing and accessories, industrial communication, exhibition, event and show room installation. He has worked with a variety of companies worldwide. In 1992, the collaboration between Laviani and Foscarini began and it has continued since, with the research of new shapes and materials. His contemporary style is hallmarked by a particular sign or color.

F. Laviani

Ferruccio Laviani (b. 1960) of Cremona, Italy graduated from Politecnico di Milano in architecture in 1986 and created industrial design objects, mainly lamps or lighting systems known for colored transparent plastics. From 1986-1991, he was a member of the De Lucchi studio, designing for various companies such as Credito Bergamasco, Mandarina Duck, Memphis, Olivetti, and Swatch. He came into prominence as the Memphis group began to leave its mark on International design. In 1991, he showed his silverware from the Morandotti collection at the "European Capitals of New Design” exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The same year, he began a collaboration with Kartell and is now an artistic director and consultant.
Kartell's image and its 59 years of history are described through the company's products. The development, the corporate strategies, the attention the company has paid to technology, the project and the design can be appreciated by observing the products Kartell has produced. Kartell's products express the language and the atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but at the same time, they are "contemporary articles," they incorporate many other values and messages and this is why they have become an integral part of our domestic design world.
