With his latest design, the award-winning Italian designer Luca Nichetto, whom we had the pleasure of meeting during our trip to Foscarini’s HQ, revisits his native Venice and the centuries-old glassmaking traditions of Murano island. Inspired by the said ‘traditional glass lanterns made on the island of Murano,’ the new, dramatic pendant light is manufactured by the British company Established&Sons and it is Nichetto’s second product for the London-based brand.

Two weeks ago, Dailytonic has paid a visit to the headquarters of one of our favourite (no exaggeration) Italian lighting brands, Foscarini, where, along with a small group of other international design enthusiasts from Muuuz, Yatzer and DesignMilk to name a few, we have met the wonderful team Foscarini who took us on an inspiring tour within the company’s airy, glass-cladded base located in the northern Italian comune of Marcon, half-an-hour drive from what we have learnt must be one of the most picturesque cities in the world, Venice.

'Poliart' collection of coffee tables by Luca Nichetto for Casamania

Italian designer Luca Nichetto has created a fascinating collection of coffee tables for Casamania, inspired by his love of travel. The form of each of the four table-tops is based on a different European city – Paris, Barcelona, Venice and Istanbul – as it would appear in a city map, albeit in a stylised, abstracted way.

'Tua' table lamp by Marco Zito for Foscarini

Foscarini surprised with an impressing video installation during this year’s Salone del Mobile at Superstudio Più. Amongst others the Italian manufacturer presented a new table lamp by Marco Zito.

Its simplicity enhances the elegance with which every detail has been designed: the wide angle of its bend, the subtraction of material from one of the two sides and the treatment of the rounded corners.

The pendant light ‘Troag’ by Luca Nichetto is made of multilayered, heat-curved wood whose edges are specially milled to create an inclined, dynamic profile, emphasised by the grain of the wood.

'Troag' light by Luca Nichetto for Foscarini

Italian designer Luca Nichetto has created a new pendant light for Foscarini, which will be launched during next week’s Salone del Mobile in Milan. The decidedly linear piece takes a formal cue from the traditional ‘troag’, a canoe-shaped wooden bowl used in Lapland, which the designer encountered on a visit to the region.

Available in varying lengths, the lamp is fabricated from a single piece of wood. Light is diffused both downwards and upwards, the latter thanks to a slit that runs long the top of the shade. Given its linearity, ‘Troag’ is particularly suited for illuminating long tables or large open spaces.

'Alle' chair by Luca Nichetto for Skitsch

Luca Nichetto’s new chair design for Italian manufacturer Skitsch will be launched at next month’s Milan Furniture Fair. Called ‘Alle’, it combines a tubular-steel structure with a curved plywood seat element, with a clever use of a colour gradation on the latter integrating the two.

There are two versions of the chair: one is four-legged, the other has a column base. Skitsch’s new London store on the Brompton Road, which opens at the end of March, will preview the piece before its official launch in Italy.
