Nature is one of the sources of inspiration for Behive, a table lamp which, as the name suggests, recalls the shape of a beehive. Its rounded, sensual and at the same time stylish shape was created by an overlapping sequence of rings, each of a larger diameter starting at the small base, from which the lamp appears to take off. Owing to the particular shape and tilt of the rings, the light source is not directly visible from any perspective, thereby enhancing the appeal of the lamp. Its soft and inimitable lighting effect makes it an object, a decorative ornament, a pure emotion. Charming and magical when it is on, Behive turns into a poetic, domestic sculpture when it is turned off, revealing its dual, reversible nature: white turns black, light becomes shadow. This product arouses a unique emotion and is perfect to highlight an important as well as an intimate setting, in different uses: on top of a side board, a table or even on the floor.

Werner Aisslinger, is an architect and designer based in Berlin. After having worked with Ron Arad and Jasper Morrison, in 1993 he opened Studio Aisslinger, specialising in product design. He has designed for Zanotta, Cappellini, Porro, Magis, Vitra and Lorenz.

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.
