CAPTAIN FLINT FOR FLOS, 2015
‘I wanted to design a light with a dual purpose: to be an up-lighter illuminating the space with enough ambient lighting, while having the ability to be rotated and directed down as a dim companion for reading. The notion of balance is prominent in this fixture; a cone resting delicately on its point on a rotating horizontal metal rod. The base is in marble, bringing an element of preciousness, stability and presence.
The conical diffuser stays balanced upon the thin, tubular structure using an ‘invisible’ system, which also allows the diffuser to rotate in eight different positions. This ensures the beam can be pointed downwards for direct light, or projected against the wall to create a more relaxed ambience.
Captain Flint is also available as an outdoor version.
