Foscarini was founded in Murano, Italy, in 1981. Its emergence in an environment steeped in the centuries old tradition of glassmaking dictated the character of the brand. However, through their attempts to break out internationally, the brand soon altered the design of their light fixtures in favour of more contemporary versions. The brand currently offers a wide range of light fixtures for both indoor and outdoor spaces. Fashion and lifestyle brand Diesel has chosen Foscarini as its collaboration partner in developing light fixtures.
