We have received reports of a small number of malfunctions involving the first version of the Bon Jour Unplugged rechargeable lamp, sold from October 2016 through 2019*. In particular, extended recharging may result in the rechargeable battery overheating, with a further possible risk of the lamp's body to melt. In some (extremely rare) cases, combustion and smoke emissions have also resulted from contact with the surrounding material.
Despite the low number of instances reported, Flos is conducting a recall out of an abundance of caution. Therefore, we are providing a new replacement power supply kit at no cost to the customer, containing a next-generation rechargeable battery and complete with simple instructions and video.
If you have purchased a Bon Jour Unplugged lamp in the period stated, please contact your retailer for your new set. As a precautionary measure, please do not use the lamp until it has been upgraded with the new power supply kit.
*These products can be identified in two ways. One option is to remove the top part of the lamp. If the underside has UL on it, no action is required. Alternatively, look at the number on the charger socket. If the third digit is 6, 7 or 8, action is required. If the third digit is 9, action must be taken only if the first two digits are between 01 and 18.
We have received a number of reports regarding the Romeo Moon S2 and Romeo Louis II S2 model lamps, specifically in respect of products manufactured between 1996 and 2006. We have found how the improper use of some cleaning products on the articles could weaken the lighting suspension system, leading over time in some very rare cases, to its failure.
Although there have only been a very limited number of reports, safety has always been a priority for FLOS. For customers who purchased these models between 1996 and the end of 2006, FLOS has made a simple and easy-to-install safety booster kit available which is designed to prevent any form of deterioration in the product. We would therefore ask customers to contact their nearest authorized FLOS retailer to receive the necessary information and a free safety booster kit, the assembly instructions for which can be downloaded.

We have received some complaints about a malfunction of the halogen version of the Skygarden 1 and Skygarden 2 pendant Lamps, manufactured since 2007, which may derive from a possible fault in the terminal of the mechanical device used to bear the weight of the lamp. In extremely rare cases this defect might lead to the buckling of the lamp suspension system.
Although very few cases have been reported, and absolutely no damage has been caused to consumers, safety has always been a top priority for FLOS. For customers that have purchased these models in the period going from January 2008 to July 2016, we have prepared a simple safety kit that can easily be mounted on these lamps by qualified technicians. We accordingly invite our customers to contact their nearest authorized FLOS retailer to receive the information needed to obtain the safety kit, absolutely free of charge (see assembly instructions).
