In the Flos vision, there are and always will be totally new types of lighting to create. New ones that have to be studied, developed and produced with a radical, ground-breaking attitude that manages to balance the design rigour that Flos was founded on. By nurturing that sense of imagination for over 50 years, Flos have placed themselves at the forefront of lighting innovation and in the hearts of many as one of the world’s finest homeware brands. Just one look at the latest Flos collection at OPUMO and that all makes sense, really.
“Today, like never before, we must find the synthesis of emotions, technology, poetry, needs, messages, aesthetic and political values. It is not just changing the technique but the society itself and our behaviours, both public and private. We must push beyond our capabilities and imagination to improve people’s lives,” Piero Gandini, President of FLOS declares. That’s a quite nice way of looking at it, too. Despite being a longstanding pioneer in Italian design, working with some of the finest designers in the world and unearthing some of the best design talent, Flos are still growing and evolving. It’s that sense of innovation and the considered balance of iconic forms, artisan craftsmanship and mass-production technology that makes Flos at home in any surrounding. To illustrate our point, we’ve picked out a few standout pieces from the latest arrivals below.
The statement suspension lamp provides a wonderful diffused light and it features a matte black varnished die-cast aluminium shell and an adjustable 12-metre coaxial cable. So it can quite literally go, hang and light up any room as you’d like it to.
Designed in collaboration with Michael Anastassiades in 2014, the Cone String Light has become what is considered as a ‘modern classic’ in the Flos lighting catalogue. That’s because it’s sleek design and contemporary colour palette can work on its own or in combination with a couple of String Pendants, if you choose to place them above a dining table, for instance.
