allegretto suspension lamps

Design Atelier OÏ, 2009
Lacquered metal elements
Made in Italy by Foscarini

The special design of the metal elements makes it possible to obtain shapes that blend together, creating a singular aerial and almost bodiless sensation. Allegretto Ritmico, Vivace and Assai are ideal for creating the focal point of any environment, public and private. A task achieved using different and truly original languages, materials, shapes, volumes and colors.

The Allegretto is the smaller version of the Allegro suspension lamp. This series is composed of elements in extruded aluminum and is available in three different shapes and colors. Allegretto models guarantee diffused and direct lighting oriented downwards and reflected off the ceiling.

The TR(OI)KA was founded by Aurel Aebi, Armand Louis and Patrick Reymond in La Neuveville, Switzerland. in 1991 under the label Atelier OÏ. The main elements that characterize the Atelier's philosophy and work consist of its multi-disciplinary nature. They have rendered projects for Wogg, Ribag, Swatch, B&B Italia and Desalto among other clients.

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."
