At first glance, Ferruccio Laviani design is distinguished not so much by a single distinct shape or design style but, rather, an exuberant use of color. There are the jewel tones seen in the monochromatic Kartell Take Table Lamp
and the mid-century modern splotches of the Foscarini Orbital Floor Lamp
. The Kartell FLY Suspension
is available in no fewer than eleven colors.
This selection of items reveals no set Laviani style. However, the lack of a signature design element actually becomes a signature of its own: one with no limitations.
Coming into his own as a designer during the influential radical/anti-design period of the 1980s, Laviani contributed to the famous Memphis collection, helped found the Solid Group and worked alongside other famous contemporary designers like Michele De Lucchi
, Ettore Sotsass and Achille Castiglioni
. The creative energy of that time, the experimental use of form and function, color and materials proved most impressive to Laviani and greatly influenced his subsequent design work at companies like Moroso, Dolce & Gabbana, Flos
, Swarovski Lighting
, Kartell and Foscarini.
Laviani continues on with such experimentation to this day. In addition to revealing his brilliant use of color, items such as the Take Table Lamp, Orbital Floor Lamp and FLY Suspension are also an ideal cross-section of Laviani's experimental nature, as are other items like the Kartell Bourgie Table Lamp
, which displays classic baroque style constructed out of modern polycarbonate. Lumens carries Ferruccio Laviani designs for the Foscarini
