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.
