Design Studio Baruffi & De Santi, 2009
Lacquered aluminum
Made in Italy by Foscarini

This is not a hanging lamp or floating decorative element, it is not a lighting rail and yet it is all these put together and more. A new idea for illuminating and furnishing spaces, creative raw material that every designer can put together differently and in total freedom. Wave, with its graphic impact and sinuous form, brings an unusually rich aesthetic and sculptural quality to a technical fixture. The piece, when used alone or together in multiples, suggests flexibility and softness. The lamp is made of extruded aluminium and has an ellipsoidal section that diffuses the light upwards, creating an extremely atmospheric effect.

Founded in the early 1970s by Maurizio Baruffi and Roberto De Santi, the studio offers consultancy and design for architecture, store, office and showroom furnishings, industrial design and visual design. An important part of its activity is also the restoration and renovation of historic buildings and those of artistic value. Their studio is a part of modern cultural life and focuses a great deal of attention on the evolution of theories of the present.

Wave is a crossover, a new idea for illuminating and furnishing spaces. Its sinuous shape gives the idea of flexibility and softness, even though it uses rigid material like extruded aluminium. It's available in two finish options: white and aluminum.

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."
