‘serena’ by patricia urquiola is a series of lights that is neither brash nor imposing. produced for flos, the ‘serena’ collection if influenced by the natural world, characterized by round or oval leaf-shaped diffusers, in which the illuminated source evokes the pistil of a flower. the lightweight and amusing design is calm, delicate, flexible and simple, and sees the ‘foliage’ comes to life through different colors and forms. available in a floor-standing, table, applique and branch-like suspension version, ‘serena’ is conceived in refined materials and finishes like copper, gold, wood, polished aluminum or matte white varnish.
