On entering, the interior typifies a male domain which embraces a contemporary take on old world elegance which offers a high degree of comfort for its discerning clientele. Comfortable leather chairs greet the customer and a choice of high-end products for male grooming are displayed against a brown faceted wall.
We built up the interior as natural continuation of the architecture. By functional design we separated the area into two zones: the front zone was incorporated into the exterior creating public space and feeling of console silhouette of the building; the rear zone was separated through floor and roof design that allowed reducing depth of space while keeping the panorama.
Launched at Euroluce, Milan April 2011, Can Can, the new creation by Marcel Wanders for Flos, will be available in the stores from July onwards. Ostensibly a clean, linear suspension light, Can Can entertains a dual personality as the simple external shape houses a sophisticated decorative interior. Can Can recalls other designs by Marcel Wanders where he combines classic forms with traditional decorations.
Unlike most lamps, Floo is suspended from one side. It remains level because the center of gravity has shifted to the shade’s unique conical shape. Aesthetically, without the central cabling in the way, you get an even circular disk of light uninterrupted by wires. I love when design is as simple as moving a seam or line to create an entirely new yet enigmatic silhouette.
