The international winner projects will be presented at the largest optical trade fairs in Germany and abroad. Detailed information under

Foscarini's gorgeous displays at Armory Show 2018


For this year's edition of the Armory Show, Foscarini collaborated with Hotel Americano to furnish three pop-up lounges at the Armory Show. Inspired by Enrique Norten’s Hotel Amerciano in nearby Chelsea, the VIP lounges featured some of Foscarini’s most iconic and artistic lamps over vibrant blue and yellow backdrops, as oppose to white walls commonly seen in galleries. As the lines blur between art and design, Foscarini’s sponsorship found a synergy with the show’s scope and audience.

Panel Light


Panel light is one of the results of our experimentations in optimising 3D printing. These parts were designed with different structures and geometries to add properties like stiffness, flexibility, deformability or an interesting aesthetical quality to the parts. In search of a possible and a suitable application, for us being product designers, the subject lighting fixtures emerged. Panel light is on display at the MCBW in Munich as part of the VICIS exhibition (March 3rd-11th).
