Radiant light, delicate balance: Like the other pieces in his IC Light Series, the IC Lights F floor lamp showcases designer Michael Anastassiades’ love of industrial simplicity as well as his profound technical skill.
The IC Floor Lamp from FLOS is a case study in balance. After watching a video clip of a contact juggler, designer Michael Anastassiades was inspired by the skill it took to spin and move the set of spheres around the juggler"s body. His starting point was to capture the moment where the spheres seemed to freeze in place on the juggler"s arms and edge of his fingers, thus was born the IC collection. FLOS lighting has been crafting incredible Italian objects of light since 1962. Playing with light (and its absence) is fundamental to the well-thought "flosophy" of FLOS. Combine this exploration of light with bold experimentation in shape, material and LED technology-plus the iconic ideas of international-acclaimed designers-and the result is poetic functionality at its best.
Inspiration behind the design: Poise is powerful: That’s the message Michael Anastassiades offers with his IC Light Series. From the skillful balance of the sphere and baton that invokes thoughts of a dexterous juggler’s act to the lamp’s name—IC, a reference to the identity code used to evaluate immigrants entering the UK—the designer makes a commanding statement.
