New Foscarini Dolmen

A new year brings new designs and the first of many from Foscarini is the Dolmen collection.


The design is one of Foscarini most iconic, originally designed by Ferruccio Laviani in the mid-Nineties. The collection has been reworked to adapt to the new opportunities offered by LED technology.

The collection includes a suspension and floor version both using a dimmable LED source which provides a warm uniform light and allows a slimmer aesthetic.

The finishes transform its personality and suggest different feelings and settings; matt orange with an industrial tone or a matt brushed aluminium for hightech inspiration, or a warm bronze colour.


The Floor lamp is designed to be rested against a wall and give out a diffused and reflected light. The suspension hangs gracefully giving both a direct and indirect light.

Both the floor and suspension versions are made from a laser-cut sheet of aluminium which is bent using a pressure bending machine and hand finished. The aluminium is anodised and subsequently liquid coated with transparent varnish or coloured paint. The collection is available aluminium, orange or bronze.

Foscarini Tuareg by Ferruccio Laviani

8 August 2014 Permalink

The Tuareg was designed for Foscarini by Ferruccio Laviani. Tuareg is composed of three dimensional aluminium tubes into which LED light sources have been incorporated. The LEDs can be switched on and off separately and adjusted 350 degrees in order to vary the light effect and the lamp's possible uses. Integrated touch switches and the system used to hide the power cables within tubular elements ensure that the design is as minimalistic as possible.The bold sculptural design of the Tuareg makes it an ideal centrepiece for both large commercial and domestic spaces. The structure is made of extruded aluminium coated with liquid paint and is available in a choice of two finishes. The bright orange finish is inspired by the bright colours of industrial anti-rust paints and the black chrome finish is intended to evoke the lustre of precious metals.
