Italian brand Flos has introduced ‘Arrangements’, a lighting installation created by London-based designer Michael Anastassiades for the brand’s space at Milan Design Week. Midway between a light sculpture and an industrial design object, Arrangements is a modular system of geometric led elements that can be combined in multiple compositions as single or even connected chandeliers.
Anastassiades’s modules are easily fixed together electrically and mechanically, balancing perfectly on each other to create the dramatic effect of a big chain of light. Each combination can be changed any time, with a different order, type or quantity of elements, with no need of technical assistance.
‘I have always been fascinated with the parallel that exists between lighting and jewelry. Starting from the simple fact of how each piece relates to the human scale: one is designed to be worn on the body whereas the other is made to decorate the space someone occupies. I’m challenged in how the delicate nature of something small can be translated spatially and still manage to retain its preciousness in the way materials are presented. It is no coincidence that the word ‘pendant’ has a double meaning. Existing both as a piece of jewelry that hangs from a chain worn around the neck, and a light designed to hang from the ceiling,’ says Anastassiades.
To allow the customers choose the very elements of arrangements they want, Flos launched the ‘Arrangements Configurator’, an online service which helps you easily create your own lamp. By simply adding pieces you want to use, you will get a 3D model accompanied by size and weight of your chandelier.
