265 Chromatica (Limited Edition of 265) Swing Arm Lamp
Made by Flos
The iconic and minimal 265 Swing Arm Lamp was designed by Paolo Rizzatto in 1973, re-introduced in a 2022 limited edition of 265 by Flos.
It provides direct light, and the lamp head rotates 360-degrees so light can be aimed in various directions.
This new version—for which the word Chromatica has been added to the name—sees color as a design tool rather than a mere decorative element. The palette, consisting of three primary colors, thus becomes the instrument that clarifies each lamp's function.
Rizzatto's original design envisaged an association between each element of the 265 and a primary color according to its function:
- The hat, the most important element, was red.
- The weight was yellow.
- The connecting arm was blue.
Almost fifty years, the iconic wall lamp is re-introduced in new colors celebrating the architect's original idea.
