Design Diesel Living by Foscarini, 2010
Silicone rubber, concrete
Made in Italy by Foscarini

Tool lights up the rough vintage environment of factories and workshops, with shapes and materials derived from the pull of technology in its raw state. In fact, this lamp has been designed with a single rubber body, its form reminiscent of a foundry mould or a piece of engineering straight from the lathe. Transmitted is the impression of an object fresh off the assembly line and destined for a home environment unafraid to break with design and aesthetic conventions.

It has a single rubber body, and it is available in two suspension versions, large and small. The smaller is also available as a reading or table version, with a rough cement base and black varnished metal stand. All models produce precise, direct light.

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."
