Tuareg boasts a decidedly sculptural presence, standing out in space with a strong totem-like appeal.
The new project by Ferruccio Laviani for Foscarini, consists of simple yet elegant tubular elements which create a structure with a personality resembling that of an artistic installation. References to the world of contemporary art stand out among Laviani’s sources of inspiration, ranging from echoes of land art to hand crafted architecture.
Its weight bearing structure, perfectly balanced by two invisible ballasts, is defined by branched tubular elements joined together with visible screws. Going beyond traditional geometric shapes, Tuareg features a surprising “ordered chaos” with astonishing stability and harmonious shape balance.
Equipped with three LED light sources adjustable to 360° with touch dimmers that can be switched on or off completely independently, Tuareg is the product of an incredible industrialisation process, which brought this visionary project to fruition. An effective light technology brought the power cables inside the tubes so that only a single electric cable exits within the structure of the lamp. Its touch switch allowed the lamp to be freed of any superstructures and highlighted the elegance of its silhouette.
