A recent preview of Flos’ architectural lighting, including pieces from the Soft Architecture collection, and a tour with Flos CEO Jan Vingerhoets gave us a sneak peek at some of the company’s new lines, as well as some great applications for Flos products with which we are already familiar.
The new Light Cut was displayed in a retail vignette, replacing the standard hanging overhead fluorescents with minimalistic sophistication.
This vignette features some great Flos fixtures, including D’E-Light, Light Spring, and USO.
You may recognize Light Spring from the November/December 2011 issue of Contract, a modern take on the classic candelabra.
Wallrupture was another stand-out product that afternoon, with its intriguing light source and natural, golden glow.
Wallcrevice’s seamless application is user friendly during the installation process—once the installer is familiar with the process, it can be installed quickly and easily, Vingerhoets says—as well as after. Maximum efficiency LED bulbs have a life-span guarantee of five years.
A cross-section of Wallrupture reveals the inner-Earth glow actually comes from gold leaf paint, which garnered the most positive responses of any color treatment during development, Vingerhoets says.
