Flos launches new architectural lighting at London lighting showroom Atrium

This November, Flos, the iconic Italian lighting company, will launch a new collection of innovative and technically advanced architectural lighting. Flos, who will be celebrating their 50th birthday next year, have collaborated with international designers such as Jorge Herrera and Philippe Stark to create lighting which will transform both commercial and residential interiors.

 

This new collection will be available through Atrium, which exclusively supplies Flos’ architectural ranges to an extensive list of clients such as Jaguar Land Rover, Nike and Selfridges with architects and specifiers alike keen to use Flos lighting.

 

This new range is made up from entirely LED light sources, which are available in an array of products with different finishes and colour options to suit a variety of interior and exterior lighting requirements. One such example is the LED Pipes designed by Flos which were first launched at Euroluce 2011. Available with a black or white housing they are installed using a recessing frame within a false ceiling with up to four thickness options. The coloured tubes come in four colourways- amber, magenta, blue and clear- to suit different sensory experiences.

 

Flos has also considered outdoor needs with the dramatic Block of Light designed by Knud Holscher, the renowned Danish architect and industrial designer. This versatile luminaire, which can be used indoors as well as outdoors, creates subtly lit pathways and spaces. The cover plate is made from die-cast aluminium which is given a polyester powder coated finish in matt white, black or grey.

 

LEDs provide a highly efficient light source with low maintenance. Flos’ architectural range uses LEDs which offer a striking aesthetic and warm ambience similar to that of traditional lighting. G-O designed by Jorge Herrera is a light fitting which delivers white, cool or warm light to suit different atmospheres.  First launched at Euroluce 2011 G-O can be used for indoor or outdoor lighting applications. Its versatility in plasterboard or solid wall installations mean it can even be inserted into the riser of a staircase to provide an illuminated walkway. It is available in white, anodized aluminium, stainless steel or a bronze finish.

 

The use of LED products within commercial and residential projects has increased substantially, particularly given that building regulations now demand more efficient lighting programmes. Battery LED designed by Flos will revolutionise the LED market. This fixture achieves a significantly larger amount of light than other products of similar size, generating 1800 lumens the equivalent to 100W of low voltage. Battery LED is available in grey, matt black or matt white finishes. Available from 2012.

 

There are many examples of creative, innovative spaces that have used LED lighting successfully.  Atrium have recently finished the development of their new London showroom, and within the boardroom they have used LED lights for 26 out of 30 of the fittings, with spectacular results. LED lighting can now be adopted into lighting schemes with much more ease. Skim LED designed by Flos is a LED strip specifically designed for highlighting textured and interesting wall surfaces. The lights are available as modular lengths with a matt white finish and can be cleverly concealed to provide seamless downward lighting to graze walls.

 

A more colourful approach to commercial lighting can be seen in Apps designed by Jorge Herrera. These lights provide a vibrant and playful take on the art of signage and allow for an inventive and original interior. Flos is also able to create a special one-off design for a client if required.

 

Another bold design is the Light Cut designed by Flos. Here a slot is created in the ceiling with a width of either 70mm or 140mm and are ideal for retail and hospitality interiors. A miniature version is also available.

 

Hide by Philippe Starck showcases a more minimalist design. Hide will be available in a small square version and a longer rectangular version from December. These LED light fixtures can be personalised in varying solutions and materials. The background can be anodized metal, coloured plastic, photographs, wood and laminated stone.

 

Another simplistic design is the Tight light by Piero Lissoni is an aluminium T-shaped wall light created with clean minimalistic lines. Tight Light directs its beam of light both onto the ceiling and the wall beneath it. An L-shaped version, Long Light, is also available, diffusing light in only one direction.

 

Decofix and Kap Square are lights that showcase variations in fitting shape and come in square, rectangular, oval or round fittings. Kap Square is available with a gold, blue, black or white interior finish.
