The meeting of two creative paths, Eugenio Gargioni and Guillaume Albouy have generated Plena, the first project created for Foscarini.
Moon, heaven's feather (G. Ungaretti). Plena takes its name from the full moon, the form of a light that makes people fall in love. Large in size but light and dynamic, Plena provides dual lighting: reflected on the surface below it, and spreading towards the ceiling. An intriguing light, of special charm, to completely permeate a room while remaining soft and enveloping. Placed over a table, Plena never emits the slightest glare. Two elements balance each other, performing a design gesture with an almost poetic intent: the lunar disk becomes a plume, thanks to the arched line that conveys a sensation of lightness and flight. The fabric is magical: it embodies the form like a solid, yet requires no reinforcement, no muscle, for its perfectly natural gesture. Like a sail in the moment it is 1lled by the wind. Plena is a cradle that contains a light source, though the latter, like any true essence, is invisible to the eyes. A synthesis of form and function, performance and poetry, Plena is perfect for both domestic and commercial spaces. Its image changes, depending on the vantage point: it is a lamp that thrives on solitude, above a table, but also on repetition in vast areas like halls or large shopping areas.

Suspension lamp with semi-diffused and accent down light. The diffuser is a double special PVC canvas with high light reflectivity. This type of material is usually used for large backlit lighting screens. The edge of the diffuser is made of white painted metal rod that stretches the screen and defines its shape. the diffuser support arch is made of matt white powder coated die cast aluminum, with the COB LED set in the center and protected by a polycarbonate screen. The structure of the arch acts as a dissipator, and the transparent electrical cables are load bearing. Ceiling canopy with galvanized metal bracket and white painted batch-dye ABS cover.
