The latest Jasper Morrison floor lamp from Flos capitalises on the low profile and high output of the latest LEDs.
This is bound to become one of the design classics that rate alongside the glo-ball for simplicity of form and function.
‘a couple of years ago piero gandini showed me a new led technology which consists of a ring of LEDs that send light sideways into the edge of a flat composite disc of translucent white material which, when lit, appears to be a flat white disc. ‘superloon’ is the answer to the question of what to do with this intriguing technology. mounting the disc on a gyroscopic axis allows the light to be directed in infinite directions, while the light it gives out is broad and diffused but can be dimmed to a soft glow.’ - jasper morrison on the design of ‘superloon’
