Jozeph's work is recognized for it’s innovative use of materials and processes, as well as for his interest in the ‘behavioral’ influence of interactive technologies in everyday objects. The son of career artists, his cultural approach to design reflects his background in art and theater, with formative professional experience in set and lighting design in New York theater. Other early experience in the US high-technology and biomedical sectors established his interest in research-driven design.
He regularly teaches and lectures internationally. His designs have won many awards and have been featured in numerous publications, including “Design Now” (Taschen), “SPOON” (Phaidon) and “International Design Yearbooks” (Laurence King), and have been displayed in many galleries and museums globally.
The landmark HAVANA lamp helped establish Foscarini as a preeminent global producer of contemporary lighting, and is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.
