“Caigo”, in Venetian dialect, is the mist that rises up from the lagoon waters; it is the rarefied atmosphere that welcomesVenetian fishermen at dawn. These are the inspiring images that led to the concept of the suspension lamp designed byMarco Zito for Foscarini, which stands out for the contrast between the magical shades of the diffuser and the concretepracticality of the technical components. To bring to life the concept behind this design, the choice of material was of vital importance: indeed, typical Muranoblown glass is capable of guaranteeing that shaded nuance effect that distinguishes the diffuser. The glass workingprocess used for Caiigo is highly complex: it is up to the master glass-blower to capture the exact combination and fusionof white and transparent to achieve the desired shaded nuance. This is precisely why each lamp is unique, and thepassage between the two glass colours varies slightly from one lamp to the next, thereby lending the product a craftbasedquality. In Caiigo, the thousand-year glass-blowing technique and the production expertise are combined with LED technology,which is the perfect partner for this design, creating a lamp that stands out for its character and contemporary versatilityof use. A charming ambient light is teamed with excellent down lighting, making it perfect on a dining table or a desk in astudy. Caiigo is linear, balanced and magical: it is not just a lamp, but rather a fragment of a landscape. It mesmerises owing toits simplicity and its ability to change: when it is turned off, the glass almost disappears from view, whereas when it is on,it suddenly comes to life, with a soft light like that of a flame, which caresses and does not create any glare. Caiigo is a timeless, light-weight model that is versatile in its styling and functionality, suitable for application in a varietyof settings. Owing to its size, it can also be arranged in a row or in clusters, to add character to both private settings orcontract spaces.
