Design Diesel, 2009
Fabric, anodized metal
Made in Italy by Foscarini

Tri-p is a nomadic, quick-change object, an idea of contemporary mobility that characterizes the most varied spaces, in every moment and anywhere in the world. It opens and is dressed with a soft diffuser in elastic fabric on a rigid metal support, it closes and can be carried anywhere, in its special case: into another room or into another home. Tri-p has a warm, diffused light, perfect for relaxation or reading. Its transportable nature and versatility have been designed for those who are always in movement, but want to take a friendly object with them, one that is attractive and personal. The touch of ‘dressing' the metallic support with a fabric diffuser is an irresistible reference to the world of fashion and shopping.

Made of fabric and anodized metal, the lampshade is elastic knit, which can easily be fitted or removed, to adapt to the angle of the base and to the closure movement. The warm light is diffused with varying intensity, according to the greater or lesser tension of the fabric.

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."
