SHADE LAMP BY FLOS – DREAM-LIKE MYSTERY

A new striking light fitting, redefining the word “lampshade” and its fixed perspective is launched by FLOS manufacturing company in collaboration with London-based Paul Cocksedge Studio and is named “Shade”. Inspired by surrealism, Cocksedge aimed to somehow take away the traditional wires that transmit power to a lamp from the ceiling. Through a very thin and almost invisible to the eye capillary thin wires, the paper shade of this new lamp is suspended from the ceiling while the power derives from a LED floor fitting housed in a small black aluminum box that shines an uplight inside the Japanese paper shade, making it look like it is floating! Its diffused and warm light will definitely create a magic atmosphere whether used as a centerpiece in a room or as an off-centre focus to light up darker corners, shadow-filled corridors and intimate alcoves.  Shade was one of the most acclaimed products that were presented in Salone Del Mobile 2013 and it is the first lamp to utilise both floor and ceiling but appears unconnected to either!
