Design Paolo Lucidi & Luca Pevere, 2010
polycarbonate
Made in Italy by Foscarini

Bahia is a name that evokes white beaches, a sunny atmosphere and the elegance of the Bossa Nova, for a wall lamp that is seductive and captivating, thanks to the special nature of its design and the innovative interplay of light and shade that it produces. Its appeal is the result of three overlapping planes that have a slightly asymmetrical profile and reciprocal placement. The first two house the light source, accompanying and embracing the light that flows over their concave surface and vanishes towards the edges. The third element completes the composition, silhouetted in back light with a strong, contrasting design. Every ray that emanates from Bahia, is contained in a broader glow, a magical composition of light and shade, which make it both a lighting object and a luminous decoration.

Paolo Lucidi and Luca Pevere got together at well-known design offices in Milan. In 2002 they signed their first commissions together and, in 2006, establish Studio Lucidi & Pevere in Milan. These days, Studio Lucidi & Pevere is based in Udine and still undertakes industrial design work for internationally renowned companies, belonging to a large number of different sectors.

Bahia is offered in total white, to underline its essential scenographical nature and its essence, without being ostentatious. A large-scale wall lamp, Bahia is ideal for adding a hint of softness to a wall, both highly evocative yet, at the same time, truly elegant. Group arrangements of this lamp, even turning it in different directions, turns the wall into a backdrop for original visual interplay.

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."
