caboche suspension lamp

caboche suspension lamp

Design Patricia Urquiola & Eliana Gerotto, 2005
Polymethylmetacrylate spheres, hand-blown glass diffuser
Made in Italy by Foscarini

A display of elegance, the Caboche collection consists of a group of transparent spheres, arranged uniformly in a spherical pattern, around the light source. Each of the transparent spheres adds to the lighting effect producing a brightness and shimmer unique to the Caboche family . This allows for a beautiful display of diffused light in every angle.

Caboche is illuminated by a halogen bulb and consists of an upper, matt white, glass screen and a lower, concave screen to shield the light source, thus making Caboche ideal for use in the home or in sophisticated, exclusive public areas. The Coboche family is completed by the floor, wall, ceiling and table lamps.

Born in Oviedo, Patricia Urquiola attended the Madrid Polytechnic and the Milan Polytechnic Universities where she graduated in 1989 with Achille Castiglioni as her supervisor of whom she was assistant at the Milan Polytechnic from 1990 to 1992. She has worked with many great talents and a plethora of companies worldwide. This brilliant Spanish architect is a phenomenon not to be lost sight of.

Patricia Urquiola

Born in Oviedo, Patricia Urquiola attended the Faculty of Architecture of the Technical University of Madrid, where she graduated in 1989 having completed a thesis with Achille Castiglioni. From 1990 to 1992, she was assistant lecturer on his courses. Between 1990 and 1996, she worked with Vico Magistretti for the new product development office of De Padova and signed the products: “Flower,” “Loom sofa,” “Chaise,” and “Chaise Longue.”
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."
