Havana is a floor lamp, which resembles a cigar.
In 1993 the production of Havanna was like a little revolution for Foscarini. Before the designer Jozeph Forakis had the idea for Havana, the Italian company had always made its lamps from glass. Havana, a big cigar swinging in the air, was also initially meant to be made of glass. However, after the ones responsible at Foscarini had seen the design by Forakis, they agreed with the designers to use plastic (polyethylene) as a suitable material.
Polyethylene turned out to be the right choice for this lamp, which was meant to be fresh and light, open and versatile. Also, Jozeph Forakis had the idea to produce the lamp with separate segments so that its design could be expressed more clearly.
The light of the Havana is pure, simple but not banal. It is meant to light a certain area of the living room optimally.
Design, material and idea soon also appealed at the New York Museum of Modern Art and the Havana became part of the permanent exhibition.
The Havana floor lamp is also available in yellow and ice, as well as with a chromed frame and with a dimmer, as an outdoor, wall or pendant lamp.
