flos lighting design ideas - flos lamps

The beautiful Flos Taraxacum 88 suspension light was used as a hallway chandelier in this entryway on Crosby Street in SoHo New York. Part of the FLOS lighting collection.  In 1988 Achille Castiglioni, perhaps the most famed Italian designer of all time, released the Taraxacum 88 Pendant Lamp.  The Taraxacum 88 uses a total of 60 incandescent light bulbs which can be dimmed to a soft glow with a wall dimmer (not included).  The Flos Taraxacum 88 Chandelier is available from Stardust Modern Design.

Not from FLOS but equally spectacular are these fantastic drop chandeliers.  A truly spectacular combination of several Verner Panton Fun Lamps and one Silver Spiral Lamp at the Stardust Showroom in Sonoma California.  Enjoy complimentary shipping within the US!

Pictured on the left is the Flos Gatto Lamp; on the right is the smaller Flos Gatto Piccolo Lamp, also known as the Gattino Lamp. The Flos Gatto Lamp is a table lamp in the typical Flos-material. The unique diffuser creates a warm, attractive light in a similar way of the George Nelson Bubble Lamps.

Pictured above is the Flos table lamp collection, pictured her at the Flos showroom in SoHo New York.  The Flos Mini Glo-Ball T and the Glo-Ball Regular by Jasper Morrison.  The famous Snoopy Lamp by Achille Castiglioni (a Stardust Staff Pick), the Taccia Lamps designed by Achille Castiglioni (another design icon and Stardust Staff Pick).  In the upper right are two half-finished Flos Gatto Lamps which are used at the showroom to display the production process of these exquisite lights. 

A tribute to the incandescent light bulb, the Taraxacum 88 was desgined by Achille Castiglioni and remains one of our all-time favorite lamps.  It will always blow any LED chandelier out of the water.  Taraxacum 88 is a work of art that belongs in a museum.  In fact; it does!  Just check MoMA in New York: it is included in their permanent collection.

Flos lamps light up the night at the Flos SoHo showroom; this beautiful image at nightfall shows the entire Flos collection including the Flos pendant lamps and table lamps.  The Flos Arco Lamp is used to illuminate the counter.

Fading boundaries: art meets sculpture meets light.  This is Flos.

The Taccia Lamp steals the show!  Taccia was designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1962 and is an icon of modern design.  This sculptural lamp is a Stardust Staff Pick.  Check our previous Taccia Tribute where we transported Taccia back in the past (we do have a little time machine) to a movie set with Ginger Rogers in 1942 (see image below).

Strike a pose, there's nothing to it!  We used our portable time traveler device to transport the Taccia back to a movie set with Ginger Rogers in 1942.  Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire Ginger Rodgers, dance on air. They had style, they had grace. Rita Hayworth gave good face. Lauren, Katherine, Lana too. Bette Davis, we love you...
 
The Flos Nebula chandelier was designed by Dutch designer Joris Laarman and is truly one of the most amazing lamps in the Flos collection.  This oversized chandelier is perfect for large spaces.
