Design Diesel Living by Foscarini, 2010
Lacquered metal
Made in Italy by Foscarini

The inspiration behind Perf comes from far away in time and space, creating a lamp which takes you by surprise with its personality: a domestic totem, a friend to follow us all around the home, a fascinating code of luminous openings to be deciphered. The starting point was the concept of perforated lamps as in the North African tradition, but designed with a contemporary flavor, while being technological and innovative. Light and easy to carry, Perf stands out at first sight with its perforated diffuser in its heavily pronounced shape, bringing to mind the visor of a suit of armour or even an animal's beak. A totally original luminous gesture, waiting to accompany you through all the different times of your life.

Made of metal, Perf is available in three versions - wall, reading and table light - and in three colors: aluminium, black and brown. Perf guarantees two different lighting effects: one strong and directional, which comes directly from the unshaded lamp and the other soft, passing through the perforations to create original patterns and an interplay of light on walls and surfaces. Adjustable lampshade.

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."
