The Italian lighting manufacturer’s first store in the U.S. doubles as both a showroom and gallery space for rotating installations. Founded near Venice in the early 1980s by designers Carlo Urbinati and Alessandro Vecchiato, Foscarini is known for its innovative lamps and lighting fixtures, which are constructed from a range of unconventional materials. The lamps, displayed on a modular shelving system, are both sleek and playful, and customers are encouraged to touch and interact with the lights. Many designs are touch sensitive, and others, like the flexible Magneto lamp, can be configured to suit preference and intended use. The company pays homage to its Murano roots with whimsical glass designs that also have a high-tech twist, such as the LED Caboche—a cylindrical light covered in glass spheres, which is both energy efficient and durable, as well as many new recyclable and renewable materials. Customers can browse through fixtures made of silicone, aplomb, resin on paper, plass (plastic convincingly engineered to look like glass), and even concrete.
