The charming Flight lamp series was designed by Michael Anastassiades and is manufactured by Flos for Svenskt Tenn. The collection comprises a desk lamp, a hanging ceiling lamp and a flush mount ceiling light. All of the fixtures have an innovative form that evokes a soft, flying hot air balloon. The shade is made of a resinous material that is protected by a transparent surface. It’s a unique manufacturing method that gives the lamp its soft, cocoon-like look.
Michael Anastassiades originally created the Flight desk lamp for Svenskt Tenn’s “To be perfectly Frank” exhibition in the spring of 2013. It was designed as a contemporary interpretation of Josef Frank’s iconic 2349 desk lamp or the “China Ball” lamp, reminiscent of a typical Chinese rice paper lantern, but in a different form. The lamp is being re-launched in the late summer of 2018, this time with Flos as the manufacturer and partner.
