Designed by Jozeph Foracis, the Havana Floor Lamp from the Havana collection is one of Foscarini's contribution to a collective and innovative vision of the future.

Jozeph Forakis initially imagined Havana made out of glass with the profile of a cigar similar to the definitive one: a model created out of fiberglass documents the first design phase.

Evaluations of the technical and economic feasibility of the fixture led to the exclusion of glass and the decision to use yellow polyethylene and transparent polypropylene, both self-extinguishing and recyclable materials, for the shade.

Similar considerations determined the reduction of the pieces constituting the body of the lamp from the original five to the current four, to make the piece symmetrical and use only two forms for the molding. The metal supporting parts were also reduced to a minimum in terms of number and sections.

The four plastic volumes were hooked together and held apart by three metal "brackets", whereas the slender supporting tube, which sustains the electric wire and holds the socket at the end – for an incandescent or energy-saving bulb – was soldered to a thin metal rod. It bends at the top to delineate the simple ring which, from the inside, keeps the entire shade suspended without being visible.

The foot was made of four intersecting blades cut by laser and finished, like the stem, in aluminum painted metal. For the first time, with Havana, Foscarini produced a lamp made out of plastic, a lightweight, mobile lamp which emanates diffused light, sports a youthful image, economical costs, and would quickly become popular thanks to its flexibility and the ease with which it can be adapted to a variety of conditions and spatial contexts, in all its versions including the suspension and wall lamp.

This contemporary floor lamp focuses great attention on creativity and taste of innovation, out of the ordinary, and with highest care for details both of design and of functionality.

A perfect addition to your furniture collection, with class and elegance. With its modern look and feel, it can easily complement your existing decor.
