13/05/2019 -  Flos presents Noctambule, the new collection of blown glass designed by world acclaimed German designer  Konstantin Grcic.

Noctambule is an imposing lamp with sculptural features composed of cylindrical modules in transparent glass that can be interconnected with each other, transforming and creating different luminous compositions: from monumental floor lamps to trendy chandelier.

“Noctambule: the night owl or reveller. Mostly invisible during the day but coming to glamorous activity at night-time. The analogy is fitting. The new collection of lamps is made of blown glass modules, which are see-through and therefore almost inexistent at day-time. But, when you switch them on in the dark, they transform into gorgeous, illuminated lamps”, says Grcic. Flos, Noctambule - ph. Santi Caleca

Modules can be joined together up to six elements to create a stunning lighting column. Almost invisible at daylight, its shape is outlined in the dark by the stripe LED hosted at the modules’ base and connecting rings.

“The cylindrical glass modules set the basic grammar of the collection. The single module is a lantern. Several modules stacked on top of each other create a light column, or suspended chandelier inside a stair well. Extra elements such a glass dome or cone shaped head allow for added performance such as a floorstanding uplighter and pendant. The carefully calibrated LED technology which powers the lamps is discretely integrated into the junctions between the glass modules. Almost absent, but ready to be activated at any (night-)time...”, the designer concludes.

Noctambule provides a diffuse, bright light giving a fascinating, magical atmosphere to any environment. Flos, Noctambule - ph. Santi Caleca
