The starting point for Ferruccio Laviani’s ‘Tuareg’ lamp for Foscarini “was chaos” says the designer. Consisting of simple tubular elements, the combination of which creates a structure reminiscent of scaffolding, Tuareg is more like an artistic installation than a lamp.

 

 

 

Tuareg has “A decidedly sculptural presence and stands out in space with a strong totem-like appeal.” says Foscarini. “The reference to the world of contemporary art stands out among Laviani’s sources of inspiration, ranging from the suggestion of works of land art to architecture, and it is combined with the deeply industrial soul of the lamp.”

Tuareg’s carrying frame is defined by three principal tubular elements that branch off. Each houses an LED light source that is independently switched on and off and is adjustable 320 degrees. “Going beyond traditional geometric shapes, Tuareg stages an unexpected ‘orderly chaos’ due to the extreme stability and harmonious balance of its shape.”
