The most original ideas emerge when one sees objects with different eyes. Caboche for example comes from the observation of a pearl bracelet. An idea by Patricia Urquiola and Eliana Gerotto, which has since become a prestigious, or better said wonderful and even modular, lamp.
A jewel of creativity, but also of technology. With a single, spherical element and a modular, arch-like structure, it is possible to create a whole collection of models in crystal or golden editions.
If you switch on Caboche, light comes from inside into free spaces between the transparent spheres and is simultaneously spread by these from inside, like many pulsating crystals. Are these diamonds? No, it’s polymethyl methacrylate.
The structure and the spheres of polymethyl methacrylate transform Patricia Urquiola’s and Eliana Gerotto’s initial ideas into a pure form of light that can adopt a new expression depending on the point of view. Each sphere faces the light differently and gives it back in original ways so that it becomes the light source itself.
The Caboche collection by Foscarini includes many different lamps. In addition to the pendant lamps, there are also ceiling and wall lamps as well as table and floor lamps in different sizes and colours.
The Caboche pendant lamps are also available in three different sizes, in yellow gold or transparent editions as well as with different cable lengths.
