Inspired by the softly rounded shape of a beehive, consisting of a series of rings of different diameters which make up a luminous structure crossed by thin lines, Behive is also available as a suspension lamp. A diffuser screen fitted inside it conceals the technical components away from view and leaves the light source free to light downwards and irradiate the characteristics warm, soft luminosity of Behive. The white light of the lamp this plays a dual role: on the outside, it emphasizes the graphic design of the rings, whereas from the top down, it focuses the light on a specific area. Destined to appeal both when it is switched on as well as when is switched off, like an unmistakable visual signal in the most disparate context, the Behive suspension lamp enhances settings with its decorative value and its special light.

Foscarini focuses on developing new products but chooses only to put into production those that express new ideas. While inspiration is always valued, Foscarini’s development phase sometimes takes years of progressive research to analyze materials, shapes, processes and operating modes that sometimes lead to results drastically different from the initial concept.

This is why Foscarini lamps are so innovative yet built to weather the whim of trends and become true classics.
