LED pendant luminaire in ball shape with extra long cable
String Light is a LED light of a different kind. The extra-long cable and the innovative concept of the pendant luminaire with ball head from Flos enable architectural and novel lighting solutions for the private and commercial sector.
Designer Michael Anastassiades says that he was inspired by three things for Flos String Light : "When I'm on the train and travelling, I always see these power lines connecting the power poles from the window. And as we race along at high speed, I see these completely parallel lines and find myself under the spell of this incredible discipline - how is that possible? It's just so wonderful how they connect the power poles and divide the landscape at the same time. I wanted to transfer this vision into an inner environment.
I like the way people use light to define spaces, especially outdoors. Just think of a Mediterranean village square at night. The people there have chains of lights hanging squarely from four poles. It's like they're announcing, "This is where the party is." It's the lights that delineate that activity.
And the last reason, which is the most practical, is how to move lamps when the power connections are always where you want them least. So how can you put them where you want them without effort and in a poetic way?"
Flos String Light : Innovative and flexible
Equipped with a 12-metre long cable, the Flos String Light pendant luminaire can be used to draw geometric patterns in the room. Rooms are given new architectural dimensions. If necessary, the cables can be rearranged to create a new mood in the room; patterns ranging from clear linearity to abstract art are possible.
Last but not least, the innovative concept of the Flos String Light is very practical: the luminaire can be suspended independently of existing connections. If necessary, the impression of the luminaire can be completely redesigned and the luminaire can be used in a completely different way. The Flos String Light spherical head is also technically impressive: The diffuse light can be switched on and off and infinitely dimmed using a touch sensor on the luminaire head. The energy-saving LED lamp produces warm white light at 2700 K for a pleasant ambience.
Excellent luminaire including auxiliary material for installation
Thanks to its extensive range of accessories, there are virtually no limits to the wealth of combinations String Light can offer. A lot of examples and suggestions for different installations are also included, including blank sample rooms in which you can draw your personal configuration. The coaxial cable of the die-cast aluminium luminaire is reinforced with Kevlar.
The geometric luminaire from Flos is also available as String Light Cone head with conical lamp body. On request, both versions are also available with a 22 metre long cable.
