Tivu Wall/ceiling Lamp

tivu wall/ceiling lamp

tivu wall/ceiling lamp

Design Jozeph Forakis, 2011
Made in Italy by Foscarini

These days, television - like lighting - has completely changed shape, meaning and function: Tivu is inspired by the traditional TV screen; it is a lamp dedicated to the furnishing aesthetics and functional requirements of modern life.

The silhouette of the lamp, apart from being a charming feature in itself, offers the advantage of being a completely enclosed presence that is noticed but not imposing. The light source is completely screened by a semi-transparent element through which light is diffused onto the wall and into the room.

Tivu enables a multiple of uses: the large version has a more intense focal value, capable of adding character to a whole room. Suitable for both domestic and contract settings, innovative and familiar at the same time, Tivu is set to become a new icon in the world of furniture and contemporary lifestyle. The rectangular body of the lamp, with rounded corners, is available in either a bold black or more neutral and recessive white.

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."
