Noctambule by Konstantin Grcic
Flos Soho Flagship, 152 Greene Street
May 20-25, Private opening May 18

Noctambule, a collection of blown glass lamps designed by world acclaimed German designer Konstantin Grcic, is now available to the public via usa.flos.com and Flos retail partners. For this launch, the beautiful lamps are showcased throughout the brand’s Soho flagship, where a central raised stage displays twelve possible configurations of floor and suspended elements in sophisticated clusters. Two extra large video screens show the inspirational series of photos by Santi Caleca, illustrating the ethereal collection in suggestive environments, as well as narrating its fascinating manufacturing through the traditional mouth blowing process.

Noctambule is a large-scale sculptural collection made of cylindrical see-through glass modules that can be interconnected to create floor and pendant lamps, enriched by a glass bowl or cone-shaped head. Modules can be joined together up to six elements to create an impressive lighting column. Almost invisible at daylight, its shape is outlined in the dark by the strip LED hosted at the modules’ base and connecting rings. Noctambule provides a diffused light giving a fascinating, magical atmosphere to any environment.

Arrangements by Michael Anastassiades
WantedDesign Manhattan, Terminal Stores, 269 11th Avenue
May 18-21

Michael Anastassiades has designed a unique installation of his Arrangements for Flos at the entrance of WantedDesign Manhattan, where the modular system of geometric light elements is combined to create interplays of light and space. Inspired by the parallel that exists between lighting and jewelry, each unit simply attaches onto the previous one, balancing perfectly as part of a glowing chain. This site-specific arrangement features a custom chandelier configuration of Broken Line elements and glowing, interwoven light chains with the Square and Tear Drop modules. The hanging sculptures illuminate a corridor immediately following the WantedDesign check-in desk, inviting visitors to walk amongst them and creating a gallery-like feel.

Arrangements has quickly become a playful icon of lighting artistry. Recent installations also include the 1stDibs Gallery on the 7th floor of Manhattan Terminal Stores (currently on display); Things That Go Together, the first survey exhibition of Michael Anastassiades at the Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre (exhibit open through July 20) and 10 Corso Como New York, as one of the retail concept’s first gallery partners for its September 2018 opening.
