Nuage, thanks to the special nature of its design and its brand new combination of light and shade, plays, just as optical art, with different perceptions of a figure, Nuage produces a light effect on the walls or the ceiling that changes according to your point of view. Wall lamp with reflected and diffused light, the shell-shaped diffuser, made of injection-molded translucent opaline polycarbonate, and the 5 pre-assembled plates of two different sizes are made of matt batch-dyed ABS. Pre-marked outlets in the diffuser allow for the passage of an electrical cable for multiple configurations powered by a single power point. Optional lamp connection kit is offered to connect multiple fixtures.

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."
