About the Collection Foscarini Caboche
The unconventional caboche was created in 2006 by the designer duo Patricia Urquiola & Eliana Gerotto and is one of the modern classics today. In 2021 the popular collection was completely redesigned. Caboche Plus is the result of a design upgrade and technical improvements, which makes the classic even more attractive.
Gerotto and Urquiola were inspired by a pearl bracelet to create the magnificent Caboche light fixture. The light fixtures are made of many, apparently free-floating PMMA pearls, which are arranged around an inner glass diffuser and joined together like a pearl bracelet. The pearls let the light come out, distribute it and ensure an extremely beautiful interplay of light, reflections and lighting accents. The glass diffuser complements the design; and ensures that the light does not dazzle downwards and is evenly emitted. The numerous acrylic beads sparkle and shine, and form a magical, elegant eye-catcher in the room.
In addition to the Caboche pendant lights, ceiling and wall lights are part of the collection. Different colors and sizes make it possible to find the right lamp for various rooms and applications. Their glamorous character paired with warm light are responsible for the pendant lights' popularity in living and dining rooms. But Caboche lights also demonstrate originality and luxury in representative rooms, such as hotels or elegant cafés. The Caboche table lamp and the floor lamp also impress with their successful synthesis of aesthetics and the need for a stable base: three supporting stems end in a round base that repeats the shade's spherical shape and guarantees a coherent, light and at the same time stunning design.
Foscarini further developed the Caboche collection with LED technology. Caboche Plus are henceforth the energy-efficient successors to halogen lights. The Caboche Plus with MyLight function, which can be controlled via mobile devices, is also part of the series of technical developments. The so-called tunable white effect also enables the light to be dimmed into warmer or cooler color temperature ranges.
It goes without saying that a caboche light plays a major part in the decoration of both, private and public, exclusive spaces where it exudes a dramatically aesthetic flair.
