Noctambule teams the tradition of blown glass with LED technology to create a real sculpture in light. During the day, the graceful clearness of the lamps makes them almost invisible. They come into their own at night, generating refined vertical lighting from the ground and the ceiling, with cylindrical modules in blown glass linked together by delicate rings of light. The elements in the collection can be completed with dome- or cone-shaped caps, creating a majestic column of light that will personalise even the most unusual of settings.

The successful partnership between the designer Konstantin Grcic and Flos thus continues, with two lamps resulting from this collaboration already recipients of the most prestigious international design award: Maydayin 2001 and OK in 2016.

It tells the story shared by three strong individual identities that boast extraordinary design backgrounds, together with the capacity to continually source new talents and put forward objects that take on symbolic value. The interactive tunnel at the entrance to the complex shows just how vital a link the three companies have with history, providing confirmation, also visually, of the close connection between cult objects from the past and new ones designed by contemporary maestros.
