Tartan is the unmistakeable design characteristic of Scottish woollen kilts with its perpendicular criss cross pattern generating ever changing geometric motifs. The Tartan suspension lamp has a blown glass diffuser made using the technique of mouth blowing into a mould with a design engraved in it, enriching it with lines and folds echoing the weave of Scottish cloth and a graphic play of light and shadow. The acid etching technique used on the surface of the glass also produces a sensation of material softness which brings fabric to mind. Materially rich with an attractive personality, Tartan diffuses a warm, suffused light into the environment filtered with mattglass and also ensures good direct lighting in a downwards direction.

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.
