Captain Flint Floor Lamp
Made by Flos
Sleek and graceful, this versatile floor lamp features smart details from head to toe. At the top, its spinning cone diffuser provides direct light that can be repositioned. On the bottom, it is weighted by a stunning white Carrara or black Marquina marble base. Its stem and cone are available in painted steel or brushed brass. The diffuser is injection-molded opal photoengraved PC (polycarbonate). Its power cord measures 260 centimeters and features a foot dimmer switch with ON-OFF functions and 10-100% light adjustment. The plug-in power supply includes interchangeable plugs.
There's a duality to this finely balanced piece from artist Michael Anastassiades. "I wanted to design a light that was dual purpose" ; he says. "It is an up lighter, illuminating the space with ambient lighting, and its rotation also offers a dim companion for reading. There's a notion of balance, with a cone resting delicately on its point on a rotating rod."
