British architecture practice Foster + Partners are launching a new, ultra minimal lamp at the Milan furniture fair this week.
'Flo' is currently on display at Design Supermarket, la Rinascente, and will be remaining there until the 17th of the month.
Foster + Partners collaborated with specialist Italian lighting manufacturer, Lumina, to develop a reading light that integrates the latest dimmable LED technology within a streamlined, curving form.
Available as both a floor and desk-top lamp, Flo's slender aluminium frame is balanced by a circular steel base.
Its delicate profile is created by eliminating superfluous moving parts, such as coils and springs, and the head can be rotated by 300 degrees for direct task lighting.
David Nelson, joint Head of Design at Foster + Partners, said:
“This is our first collaboration with Lumina and we have enjoyed the experience. The result is a product we are both very proud of. FLO’s design is minimal and timeless – the attention to every detail in its design has been matched by the highest quality craftsmanship in its realisation"
"We look forward to working with Lumina in the future to expand the range, as well as the variety of available finishes.”
