The Flos iconic lamp that brings to any home the magic of a decorated ceiling now in a new, smaller version
Vincent Van Duysen’s contemporary take on the classic office swing arm model, a professional light with a domestic soul. Its minimal design and versatile features allow it to seamlessly swing between home and office (and vice versa)
The villa is the result of seamless collaboration between a constellation of sculptors, painters, architects, decorators, urban designers and gardeners, who gave it shape over four decades. Its grounds are dotted with fragrant wild mint and sculptures, smaller buildings intended as artists’ residences as well as tennis courts, vineyards, a pool and a mausoleum: it’s a place where multiple personalities collide, a fitting set for a wide range of illuminations
Shot in flux, a minimal home and studio in the north of Italy, where design icons and lights coexist in the space.
A place where indoor merges with the outdoors, where pure volumes minimally define the space, where brutalist-inspired concrete monoliths stand in contrast with the industrial elements of the house’s previous life
It has been nearly thirty years since Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby started their collaboration. Looking back, it was a serendipitous experience that kicked off with a friendship at the Royal College of Art in 1992, and shortly after turned into a studio from the flat they shared in Notting Hill. After graduating from the architecture masters’ degree, their time was spent on built projects, but they both had a passion for a smaller scale, so eventually gravitated towards furniture design and have been creating for design titans ever since
A fine example of Italian rationalism and international style, Villa Ottolenghi sits on the hills of Northern Italy. Commissioned by arts patrons Count Arturo Ottolenghi and Herta Wedekind, its architecture is defined by pure geometries and arched passages, with artistic interventions throughout the building. Its rigorous interiors are a fitting contrast to the sinuous flow of Formafantasma’s Wireline, and the villa’s combination of art and architecture echoes the lamp’s double nature, somewhere between art and industrial design
Formafantasma’s Wireline sits somewhere between artistic expression and industrial design. Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin’s latest creation for Flos represents their design ethos and aesthetic values, where functionality meets the unexpected. It’s a piece that neatly fits within the studio’s universe, where design, social responsibility and ecology collide. We weave this world through a vocabulary of ideas, concepts, places and things that matter to them
Impressive, outstanding suspension lamp designed by Joris Laarman in 2007, its shape arises while playing and composing with glass lampshades of different sizes
Elegant, fluctuating chandelier design by Ron Gilad. The dynamic, rotational movement of the rings fills the space even when switched off
Patricia Urquiola’s Flauta wall lamps—inspired by organ pipes and fluted architectural details—are a study in texture and simplicity. Artist Pablo Limón captures their industrial beauty with a series of high-definition renderings
‘My father was a really, really good Diabolo player’, says Giovanna Castiglioni, daughter of legendary Italian designer Achille Castiglioni. She’s discussing one of his favorite pastimes—the juggling game, derived from a Chinese yo-yo, in which an hourglass-shaped object is spun back and forth on a string between two sticks. In 1998 the age-old balancing act served as inspiration for Achille’s final collaboration with Flos—an adjustable pendant lamp with the same name
