Spotlight: Nebula – timeless trumpets

Flos Nebula Pendant Light

The concept of the Nebula was born in 2007. Piero Gandini, owner of the World Famous Flos Lighting brand, approached designer Joris Laarman.

 

History

Flos was one of the first large design companies that Joris collaborated with. Joris wanted to create a light that was stylish and timeless. This light mirrors the tradition of Achille Castiglioni, but done in this designer’s own way.

Whilst browsing at a local flee market Joris created a cluster of old lampshades using blown glass. He was instantly taken aback by the intensity of the explosion effect of light it created. With absolutely no symmetry the Nebula benefited from natural harmony within its design.

 

Growth

The brand have collaborated with other world famous designers including Phillipe Stark, most renowned for the 24k Gold Gun collection. Profits from this went to the Frères des Hommes foundation dedicated to abolishing poverty worldwide. By collaborating with different designers, the company continues to create timeless contemporary lighting. Their products push the boundaries of design, emotion and technology.
