Designers that have created for Foscarini include: Aldo Cibic, Defne Koz, Denis Santachiara, Ferruccio Laviani, Giovanni Levanti, Itamar Harari, Jozeph Forakis, Karim Rashid, Lievore Asociados, Luca Nichetto / Gianpetro Gai, Marc Sadler, Matilde Alessandra, Patricia Urquiola / Eliana Gerotto, Pietro Lissoni, Pio & Tito Tossi, Prospero Rasulo, Roberto & Ludovica Palomba, Rodolfo Dordoni, Studio Kairos, Tom Dixon, Urbinati - Ricci e Vecchiato, Valerio Bottin.

Enrico Franzolini

Enrico Franzolini began his career as an artist and his work was known for its expression of sculptural elegance and an aesthetic refinement. He exhibited work at the Venice Biennale, as well as other exhibitions and galleries in the 1970s and then turned to design and received a degree in architecture in 1979. Like Vico Magistretti and many other designers in Italy, Franzolini has been active across the spectrum of creative fields from fine art to architecture to the various arts of the craftsman. He uses a variety of materials ? wood, metal and all the varieties of plastic ? with confidence on both the large and small scale. Franzolini's work epitomizes the integrity, the technical innovation and the ingenious forms for which Italian design has long been admired. In addition to his pictorial research, he spreads his commitment between architecture and industrial design fields and over the years he has been collaborating with some of the most prestigious companies in the furniture industry such as Cappellini, Foscarini, Knoll International, Moroso, Pallucco.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful but better off than on This light is beautiful, simple, creative... But il looks better off than on. When on the light goes to the ceiling instead of lighting the space. My husband wants to take it down... It shows defects on the concrete ceiling that we have never seen before. I still like it, but again... It is better of than on... Problem is that are not many beautiful simple white creative ceiling lamps... We already have the beautiful Veli ceiling on the entry hall.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Better off than on This light looks much better off than on. We have it in white in our dining room--it was chosen as a statement light that would not hang in front of picture windows--and the light it produces leaves a lot to be desired. First, the bottom slad in the design stays dark while the other slats glow, which gives it an odd look. Second, it produces a very harsh, almost blue, light given the material of the slats. It improved quite a bit with a dimmer, but still not ideal for the setting. Overall, I think this is proably a lot cooler on a wall for low level light than as a main ceiling light in a room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great but no light I'm still trying to figure out how to replace the lightbulb since this was professionally installed. It looks great but gives off NO light whatsoever. Perhaps it's because it's close to the ceiling but the voltage and design leaves a lot to be desired. It's more of a mood light and because we need a dining room light we had to move this to a different room and buy a much brighter lamp for above our dining table. Not sure if it was worth the price and hopefully I can figure out how to change the bulb without hiring someone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautifully Designed, Looks Great! We love our Big Bang light. We have it in our bedroom and it really makes a statement! The directions were clear and it was pretty easy to assemble as well. The only negative is that you need to take off the entire big bang part to change the light bulb and it is a bit complicated and time consuming. Overall this is a really nice looking and very functional light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just a light..a sculpture, conversation piece and just breathtaking This is realy a one of a kind light. Not the kind of piece you would see everyday in peoples homes. Its a great conversation pice, adds a lot of sculptural value to any setting and just adds an awesome glow to the wall. When you walk into the room your eyes go straight to this piece. Somewhat expensive but certainly worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big statement in an unexpected place If you're going for an over-the-top visual statement, the pendant version of this light might be more to your liking. But for our Dwell-inspired kitchen remodel, Big Bang is just the right dosage of style. For the record, we're installing undercabinet Hafele tracks for more functional lighting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful in the right space. The light is unique, and in the right spot can work well. Setup wasn't too bad, maybe an hour. I would give it 5 stars except the light isn't suitable for a lower ceiling, < 10 ft. The bulb is visible from a distance and distracts from the blades below.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was a very nice product we sold this fixture to one of our clients. as far as we know the client is very happy with the fixture. I do not know if it was installed yet but the client does have it. At this time we have no issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not what I expected It should be called the Small Bang. It looks bigger in the picture but even at 31" it looks small. Also people who see it think it was not expensive. Not what expected

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its an exceptional light, one of those hard to find However it requires professional installation, which even in NYC can be challenging. Remember this design duo - we will hear more about them!
