'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.
