Flos is presenting a fresh take on the iconic 265 adjustable wall lamp designed by Paolo Rizzatto in 1973, in the shape of the new 265 Chromatica. Colour plays a key role in the design of this updated version of the direct-light wall lamp. Rather than simply serving a decorative purpose, it emphasizes the function of each part. As the architect Paolo Rizzatto says, “light is what allows our eyes to distinguish colour. So using colour to define the design of a light seemed like a natural progression of this concept.” In Rizzatto’s original design, each part of the wall lamp with an arm was associated with a primary colour that was chosen with a specific meaning. The most important element – the head – was red, the weight was yellow, and the connecting arm was blue. However, back in 1973 they eventually decided to make the 265 lamp in softer shades. Nearly half a century later, the 265 Chromatica Flos lamp is now celebrating the architect’s original idea.
The 265 Chromatica embodies a utilitarian and democratic idea of design. It can pivot in any direction to illuminate space and is perfect at home or in an office.
The decentralised lighting concept can cater to numerous needs. You can move the wall lamp with an adjustable arm upwards, downwards and to either side, so the light shines exactly where you want it.
A new 265 Small version of the 265 lamp is also available. There is a choice of three colour options: 265 Small Chromatica, 265 Small Black (made of steel coated with black paint), and 265 Small White (made of steel coated with white paint).
The new, more compact dimensions make the 265 lamp even more versatile. With a new, shorter adjustable swing arm, it is perfect for providing clear, direct light in spaces of all sizes.
Featuring a unique, practical design, this versatile wall lamp is also perfect for use as an adjustable decentralised ceiling light. When necessary, it can be placed in a specific point in a room and provide direct light that can satisfy various requirements. It is ideal for indoor use in places such as living rooms, studies and dining rooms.
