Foscarini, formerly known for Murano glass, took a risk in producing Havana – their first foray into plastics. It has become a signature success for the company.

Abstract yet familiar, futuristic yet timeless, Havana’s simple, segmented shape is iconic yet suits any environment. Its warm, gentle light and human scale proportions makes it work either as a standalone feature or in multiples as an architectural element in larger spaces.

“This lamp does not fit into space, it creates it.” Foscarini

Paola Antonelli included Havana in ‘Mutant Materials in Contemporary Design’ at MoMA, New York in 1995. It was later selected for the museums’ permanent collection.
