Design by Giulio Iacchetti, 2008. Tropico has a decidedly sculptural presence, although it remains easy to interpret. It produces an all embracing, atmospheric light, thanks to the inner cylinder that filters and spreads the luminous fluorescent flow. The finishes available give two strongly contrasting effects: the ice version lets the light through, while the ivory version — which underlines the material and decorative effect of the element — recalls the almost ethnic vision of an oriental lantern. The personality can be further emphasized by inserting one of the optional color filters, with a choice of a cool violet tone or a warm orange tone. UL listed. Tropico requires assembly. Please contact us if you have any questions about the assembly instructions prior to ordering.

Tropico Sphera Suspension is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great in concept- horrible to install I was considering specifying this light for a high end lobby but saw an in-person installation and am selecting another light. #1: it looks really cheap- the resin does not look refined. #2: each piece is individual and movable so if shifted slightly, the pieces start to stick out #3: the light bulb itself did not hang in a straight line in 4 of the 8 fixtures I saw. Perhaps it was a bad manufacturing batch, but big fail on Foscarini's part for quality control.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from There were some issues but this is a great lamp There was an awkward process on this one but we are very happy with the result. We loved the look of the ivory color lamp in the photos on Ylighting'™s site. I called Ylighting to ask why the images show a brownish bronze color but it is called ivory. The Ylighting rep told me confidently that ivory is the color of an elephant's tusk, which can be brown, unlike conventional wisdom. She also told me that the ivory color is not to be used with the optional color filters, that those are suitable only for the œice color. Based on this guidance, we bought the lamp but not the filters. The lamp arrived and it is in fact off-white in color and not at all like what is shown on the site. Given that the lamp comes as just a big bag of small plastic parts, it was hard to make the judgment call as to whether or not we would like it in this unexpected color. (On the manufacturer's site, there also is no photo that shows the actual color of the lamp.) YLighting was open to having us return the lamp, but not if I assembled it to see what it looked like. After lots of discussion with our designer, sleeping on it, thinking about it some more, we decided to take the chance and moved forward with the assembly, which took a full two hours. (The instructions suggest that you hang the lamp, wire it fully, and then build the elaborate shade around it. In our case this was not practical so we assembled it in another location.) The Ylighting rep also steered me wrong about the filters. Comparing the physical lamp with the photos, I believe the images shown include the orange filter. To be clear, if you illuminate the lamp and leave the rest of the room dark, the shade does look dark, even if it does not look brownish bronze. Under other conditions, what you see in your room is a large off-white lamp. Despite the awkward process, the lamp is a genius design, interesting, and unique. We may tweak the wall color in the apartment to accentuate it more, and look forward to seeing it with the orange filter when it comes.
