String Lights by Michael Anastassiades for Flos
London designer Michael Anastassiades presented lamps strung between walls on fine cables for Italian lighting brand FLOS.
FLOS continues a long tradition of collaboration with acclaimed designers in the minimalistic yet functional STRING LIGHTS by Michael Anastassiades.
The concept was inspired by the designer’s re-interpretation of an outdoor landscape divided by perfectly parallel lines, and it’s elongated power cord encourages the user to create his or her own design – a design that accommodates the user’s living space, personality and lifestyle.
I like to think of the lights as an expression of the designer’s creativity expressed via the user’s creativity.
The lights are very easy to install (check the above video!). They are accompanied by an instruction booklet and smartphone app that will guide those seeking to add a touch of geometric character to a living space.
FLOS is best known for the development of iconic lighting designs released throughout the past fifty years, some of which are decades old yet remain the brand’s best sellers today.
The company partners with notorious designers, such as Philipe Starck and Michael Anastassiades, to bring their dreamlike ideas to life, as no other brand would ever produce some of these outlandish but gorgeous ideas.
For over a year now, there has been much anticipation for the US debut of this design as it was previously only available in limited quantities in Europe, teasing the World with a global tour throughout light expos and decor shows.
But soon after winning the prestigious EDIDA 2014 award in the lighting category, the wait finally came to an end for US fans. Now, after over a year, the lights are finally available at the FLOS USA online store.
Established in 1962 in Merano, FLOS is an international company offering a range of products in the residential and architectural lighting sector.
