during 2019’s stockholm furniture & light fair (5-9 february), flos presented a selection of architectural lighting systems and new products from their home collection to the scandinavian market. this year, the flos stand consisted of walls in soft colors, which provided a sophisticated backdrop to accommodate the products. the exhibition by the italian lighting company showcased various projects, including designs from konstantin grcic, michael anastassiades and nendo.

‘noctambule’ by konstantin grcic

 

the cylindrical forms in transparent glass are the hallmark of ‘noctambule’, a project by konstantin grcic. the collection consists of beautiful modules in transparent glass that can be mounted one on top of the other to create floor lamps or pendant lamps, enriched by a glass dome or a cone-shaped head. the display at the stockholm furniture & light fair showcased a variety of combinations of the lighting system, showing visitors how they can be adapted for different uses.

‘overlap’ by michael anastassiades

 

at the flos stand, visitors could also discover ‘overlap’, the suggestive suspension lamp of michael anastassiades. formed by two intersected rings and made with the cocoon coating technique, typical of flos creations since the early sixties. ‘overlap’ was exhibited in a yellow colored space, which enhanced the soft tones of the hanging lights.

‘gaku’ and ‘sawaru’ by nendo

 

at the entrance to the flos stand, visitors were welcomed by ‘gaku‘ and ‘sawaru’, the two projects by nendo, which mark the beginning of the collaboration of oki sato with flos. ‘gaku’, which in japanese means ‘frame’, is a versatile square element that welcomes interacting lamps and a series of complementary objects, including bowls, vases, a mirror and a bookend, creating a miniature room. it also offers a very practical wireless inductive charging function. ‘sawaru’ is a sculptural but essential lamp, composed of two independent cylinders that can be touched in three different angles, allowing the orientation of the light beam to be adapted for use.
