Glass Drop Table Lamp

Design Diesel Living by Foscarini, 2015
Metallized blown glass, varnished steel
Made in Italy by Foscarini

The Glass Drop table lamp draws its inspiration from a drop falling into a molten metal bowl, caught on camera at the exact infinitesimal moment in which it produces those soft concentric waves, producing an effect similar to a fluid gem. Expressive and original, it was conceived originally as a complement to the namesake suspension lamp, with which it shares its millennia-old raw material, hand-blown glass, and the technological treatment which gives it its characteristic metallic appearance. When the lamp is switched off, its silver surface is reflective like a mirror, yet when it is switched on, the blown glass takes on a soft and warm beige color: two personalities that change at the mere touch of a button. A new and charming offering that can be used in the most disparate situations, stand-alone or teamed with the suspension model.

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."
