Flos Sawaru Floor Lamp by Nendo

$1,195per item

About

A new geometric fixture designed by Japanese studio Nendo for Flos is a sculptural piece that explores the concept of balance. Two independent cylinders, resting together at a perpendicular angle, provide a brilliant light source that shines up from the floor. The Sawaru LED floor lamp can be used to supplement other fixtures in a room to create a beautiful layered lighting effect. Ideal for drawing attention to a piece of art or interior feature and illuminating an under-lit corner or hallway, the modern LED floor lamp’s strong visual impact adds an artful, modern touch to a space. Adjusting a pin in the extruded aluminum base moves the directionality of the light to three different angles—25, 40, and 60 degrees. Additionally, the two components can be separated and the body of the floor lamp installed directly on the floor without the base. Flos Sawaru is available in either a galvanized or painted finish and it comes in four colors: black, white, bright gold, or blue gray. Inspiration: Nendo, established in 2002, is known for the exciting minimalistic products of its founder and chief designer, Oki Sato. With surprising forms and clever details, Nendo overturns a user’s preconceptions about what an object should be or look like. The Sawaru floor lamp is an excellent example of the studio’s ability to reimagine the products around us. Can two cylinders rolled together make a floor lamp? Sato proves that the answer is yes—and his unexpected union of these basic geometries offers a glimpse into the thoughtful mind of this talented creator. This item is compatible only in the United States and Canada. For customers located outside of these regions, please inquire for availability in your area.

About the Manufacturer

Flos

Imaginative lighting is a longtime hallmark of modern Italian design. Following in the footsteps of innovative companies such as Artemide and Arteluce, the company FLOS brought a fresh aesthetic philosophy to the Italian lighting field in the 1960s, one that would produce several of the iconic floor, table and pendant lamp designs of the era.

FLOS — Latin for “flower” — was founded in the northern town of Merano in 1962 by Cesare Cassina (of the famed Cassina furniture-making family) and Dino Gavina, a highly cultured businessman who believed that artistic ideas espoused in postwar Italy could inform commercial design. The two enlisted brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni as their first designers. Even before FLOS was formally incorporated, the Castiglionis gave the firm one of its enduring successes with the Taraxacum pendant and associated designs made by spraying an elastic polymer on a metal armature. (George Nelson had pioneered the technique in the United States in the early 1950s.) For other designs, the brothers found inspiration in everyday objects. Suggestive of streetlights, their Arco floor lamp, with its chrome boom and ball-shaped shade sweeping out from a marble block base, has become a staple of modernist decors. Designing for FLOS since 1966, Tobia Scarpa has also been inspired by the commonplace. His folded-metal Foglio sconces resemble a shirt cuff; his carved marble Biagio table lamp looks like a jai alai basket.

In 1973, FLOS purchased Arteluce, the company founded in 1939 by Gino Sarfatti, and it continues to produce his designs. In recent decades, FLOS has contracted work from several noted designers, including Marcel Wanders and Jasper Morrison. As instantly recognizable as they are, many FLOS designs remain accessible. While FLOS lighting is the essence of modernity, its sleek, subtle designs can be used to strike a sculptural note in even traditional spaces.
