Design by Luca Nichetto and Gianpietro Gai, 2004.
After the fanciful Foscarini lamps Rha, Thor and O-space, the two designers turned to the challenging task of a wall and ceiling lamp project. GEA, a lamp of pronounced graphic value that recalls optical art, is well suited to both domestic and public environments. It can characterize its surroundings discreetly or with decisive impact when mounted in a composition on the wall.
Gea has a flat surface in thermoformed methacrylate obtained by "deformation" and a glossy finish in white, or cream. It modifies itself naturally and plastically to accommodate and use an efficient circular light bulb.

Born in Venice in 1976, Luca Nichetto he studied at the Art Institute in Venice. Afterwards he attended the IUAV, the University Institute of Architecture of Venice, where he graduated in Industrial Design. He began his business career in 1999 by designing his first products made of Murano glass for Salviati. In the same year he began his cooperation with Foscarini. Besides designing products, he also worked for Foscarini as a consultant for new material research and product development. In 2006, he founded his own agency, Nichetto & Partners, which deals both with Industrial Design and design consulting. He has received many international awards, among which the Gran Design Award 2008, the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture Good Design Award 2008, the IF Product Design Award 2008 and the Elle Decoration International Design Awards 2009 (EDIDA) as Designer of the Year in the Young Designer Talent section. He has held workshops in various Italian and international universities and he has taken part in exhibitions in Europe, in the United States and Japan. Today, Nichetto works for a wide variety of international companies developing new designs.
The Foscarini collection brings together objects that express strong ideas with special character of their own. Ideas are transformed into a tangible reality thanks to the contribution of leading personalities from the world of design. Foscarini lights up their creativity and guides their proposals.
The cornerstone of Foscarini is research into forms and materials. Established in 1981 in Venice. Foscarini started out by exploring the opportunities offered by Murano glass. Over the years, the range of materials used has expanded to include glass, polyethylene, wood and aluminum, as well as patented materials such as an exclusive textured glass and Kevlar ® or carbon fiber composite.
