The charming Flight lamp collection was designed by Michael Anastassiades and is manufactured by Flos for Svenskt Tenn. The collection comprises a desk lamp, a pendant light and a flush ceiling mounted luminaire, all of which evoke the form of a hot air balloon.
The Flight series has been made using the unique finishing technique named ‘cocoon’, pioneered by Flos in the 1960s. A liquid resin that is sprayed onto a metal structure in equal layers and finally protected by a transparent coating, giving the effect of a seamless stretched material. Flight joins a long tradition of iconic Flos products in which this technique has been refined.
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 “China Ball” lamp which is reminiscence of a typical Chinese rice paper lantern. The lamp is being re-launched in the late summer of 2018 with Flos as the manufacturer and partner.
