Havana Outdoor Suspension Light

from foscarini

havana outdoor suspension light

havana outdoor suspension light

Design Jozeph Forakis, 2005
Coated metal, rotational molded polyethylene
Made in Italy by Foscarini

The young, light-weight appearance recalling the shape of a cigar, which ironically gives it its name, the soft light that it emits and the ease with which it blends in with the most varied contexts, have made it the great success that it is today, so much so that it is also part of the permanent collection on exhibit at the New York MoMA.

The outdoor version of Havana consists of a single polyethylene body with signs that recall its division into four segments, a division which distinguished the design of the indoor version of Havana. Diffuser support made of polyester powder-coated zamak. Electrical cable is covered in neoprene for outdoor use, mounting disk for J-box is included. Cable length of 400" L is also available, please call the hive showroom to specify.

9.1" dia. | 51.1" h | 3 lbs. | black cable: 94" L
requires 1x60w E26 bulb | suitable for wet locations | UL listed

$794.00 + free shipping in the continental U.S.

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."
