Wooden Line

Troag is the swedish name for the traditional wooden tray used for making homemade marmelade that inspired Luca Nichetto when designing his lamp for Foscarini.

Linear, slick and wooden would probably be the three words that best describe the Troag lamp by Luca Nichetto for Foscarini.  
Behind the lamp a very precise brief: a linear lamp to be used in contract but also in domestic spaces, and the not necessarily related intuition of the designer of using wood. The outcome is a hot pressed plywood piece with a simple yet very recognizable profile obtained with the use of a five axe milling machine and a big attention to details.


Designer: Luca Nichetto

  • Interview: Eugeni Quitllet
    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
