"It cannot be done" is what Crea, the small company in Darfo where Aplomb lamps are now constantly produced, said after having seen the thicknesses suggested by the designers Lucidi e Pevere for the first concrete lamp offered on the market.

Foscarini brings to life design and light ideas, the result of a freedom in research, expression and development, without any manufacturing constraints. Indeed, since it was established, Foscarini has been a company without a factory, one that is therefore free to explore materials and manufacturing techniques suited to develop every new idea, relying on the locally-sourced craft-based excellence.
