The Italian brand Flos Lighting have worked in collaboration with the world famous London based designer Michael Anastassiades. Together they have created yet another work of art.
The Flos Copycat is now available along with the entire Flos range at i-lite Lighting. Unveiled during the Milan 2015 Design Week, the Copycat has finally gone into production and is available to order.
The Copycat is born from the use of circular shapes and the use of balanced elements within its design. It consists of two spheres, one small and the other large, which when combined create a structure that has a completely stable position. The Copycat is one of Anastassiades more playful ways of addressing light.
"Two spheres just touch each other. One small, in a precious material, placed under the ‘shadow’ of the large one, in illuminated glass.” - M. Anastassiades
The large hand-blown glass sphere houses a LED light that is dimmable using the dimmer switch on the power cord. The small sphere is available is 4 finishes: 24K gold, copper, polished chrome or black. There is no price difference between each finish except for the 24K electroplated gold finish
The Flos Copycat has a contemporary design that can complement most modern environments, and even be used to add a touch of minimalism in an otherwise tradition surrounding.
With most Flos Lighting sculptures there is a lead time of between 4-6 weeks depending on stock availability as lights are made to order and shipped directly from the Flos workshops in Italy to your door.
