japanese designer oki sato of nendo has completed the heco collection for italian light manufacturer flos. featuring four different iterations, the minimalist lighting collection elegantly combines an opalescent glass sphere with a metal structure without any visible connection element.

‘with a combination of a thin frame and an illuminated sphere, the collection offers two configurations of objects; either as side tables or as floor lamps leaned against a wall,’ comments nendo. the soft shape of the frames, grants the objects a sense of character and creates unique visual, as if capturing the weight of light itself.’

the heco collection by nendo for flos blurs the line between lighting objects and furniture, resulting in a mix of both. call it lamps, tables or frames, all pieces include a backlit IP65 pedal dimmer switch on the cable for easy ON/OFF and to personalize the amount of light. the integrated concentric hinge allows the table to be rotated 350º, while the top surface is available in two varieties of quartzite, a fine natural stone with sober elegance: london brown and crema d’orcia. the ‘corner’ version can be positioned either vertically or horizontally to play with the illusion of the luminous sphere: suspended and enclosed in a corner or simply blocked on the floor.
