troag suspension lamp

Design Luca Nichetto, 2010
Natural or lacquered wood
Made in Italy by Foscarini

Light, linear, suspended lines that emanate a sense of natural familiarity, at home or at work and in the office: this is Troag. Inspired by a canoe-shaped wooden bowl traditionally found in Swedish homes, this brand new suspension lamp is created in multi-layered wood that is heat curved and whose edges are specially milled to create a dynamic, inclined profile, emphasized by the grain of the wood. Troag's design makes the most of the light, concentrating it downwards to light tables or surfaces in a uniform manner. An opaline screen situated beneath the fluorescent tube hides the technical components from view and allows the lamp to be used at different heights.

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.

Hanging lamp in wood, Troag is offered in two finishes - natural wood and black lacquer - and three different sizes - small, medium and large, which is over 2 meters long. Troag is a brand new signal of style and warmth in any environment, from homes to contract spaces.

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."
