By taking away no longer needed elements from the traditional lantern, we ended up with a simple metal box, supporting invisible light sources. A void that is filled by the surrounding space. Optional: Ipnos Top Plate is a transparent methacrylate diffuser, designed to be placed on the top of the fitting with the possibility to bear up to 5 kg. The Top Plate is adaptable for Ipnos both indoor and outdoor version.

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.
