At Foscarini Spazio Monforte during Milan Design Week 2024, Foscarini presents a new research project blending art, design, and lighting. Along the lines of the Battiti initiative in 2022, HABITUS is a work of pure research: a project that moves in the space of possibilities between the idea and the product, in which Foscarini freely comes to terms with creativity, granting itself the possibility of exploring different directions in the world of lighting, without heeding the limits logically imposed by serial production.

The experimental project HABITUS, in collaboration with the artist and designer Andrea Anastasio, ventures into the territories of fine tailoring and embroidery of Arun Jothi and Natalie Frost, the creative talents of Amal, who develop the refined and often daring decorations on haute couture garments, in India and Rome. Beads, sequins and strips of laser-cut PET are the materials with which Foscarini has come to grips, to observe the reactions of light when the curiosity of Anastasio associates it with their iridescent and unpredictable textures.

“For a company, it is a true privilege to be able to take the time to reflect, to weave connections and attempt creative incursions into other worlds. It is also a natural choice, for us: getting out of our comfort zone is a part of who we are.”


The pieces that compose the HABITUS exhibition, which can be visited at Foscarini Spazio Monforte from April 16th to 30th, 2024, are not lamps; they are made by an artist by combining the know-how of a company with the refined skills of an atelier.
