design by Philippe Starck, 2006. Floor lamp for outdoor use providing direct and diffused light. External diffuser obtained from braided colored PVC tubes, internal frame in polyester-painted phospho-chromated aluminum tubular internal frame.

The structural parts of the luminaire (base support, diffusers support, arms, brackets, levers and tie rods) have been treated with a galvanizing process for enhanced weather resistance. The body is painted in grey. Springs and main mechanical components are also made with special materials for good weather resistance. The luminaire has no ON/OFF switch or luminous flux adjustment, but has a 10 mt transparent bipolar feeding cord. The luminaire also is equipped with a junction box suitable for outdoor applications. We recommend using a connection system with a degree of protection greater than or equal to the degree of protection of the luminaire.

The beginnings of Flos (meaning “flower” in Latin) blossomed from a brilliant idea: to create objects, starting with a light bulb, that would change the way of life for both the Italian market and the foreign markets. Dino Gavina and the small Eisenkeil manufacturing facility in Merano, had already been creating furniture alongside design masters such as Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Afra and Tobia Scarpa. But by the early ‘60s, Gavina became convinced the time had come to create new lamps. Using the same technology – conceived in the USA and tested at Eisenkeil – used for the Cocoon lampthe Castiglioni brothers and the Scarpa duo began creating lamps such as the Taraxacum or the Fantasma, with many other beautiful and surprising lamps to follow. And so, from day one, Flos was already reinventing the idea of artificial lighting.
