Tua by Foscarini
View Slideshow

Tua, designed by Marco Zito, is the newest addition to Foscarini’s 2010 collection.

The design of Tua is inspired by the palm of the hand containing a light: a reassuring pose transformed into a single, shaped metal plane that becomes both the support and screen for the lamp. I like the gentle bend and elegant rounded details. Hidden in the fold lies a soft light source, which is reflected off of the underside surface of the bent material. Tua would be a nice addition to a nightstand or work surface.
