Flos Gaku Wireless Table Lamp in White by Nendo

$555per item

About

Flos introduces Gaku, a creative modular light set in an open ash frame by acclaimed design studio Nendo. A world of options opens up inside and outside the natural- or black-stained frame, where lighting components and accessories can be customized to tailor this floor or table lamp to one’s needs. Five add-on accessories—a bowl, vase, key bowl, bookend, and mirror—adorn the basic structure of the lamp while turning the piece into a do-it-all tool for the home. Gaku is available in two styles, wire and wireless. The wire model features a small white or black polycarbonate pendant light suspended inside the frame. The pendant's height can be adjusted and the brightness is modified through a push-button dimmer switch on the power cord. The wireless design integrates an induction charger in the frame that powers a lamp through non-contact charging. The portable luminary can be moved to provide light wherever needed. Featuring four levels of brightness controlled through a dimmer switch on the light fitting, the fixture can operate for six to 48 hours autonomously. A battery indicator light shows when it needs to be recharged. Gaku’s corded power supply comes with a USB outlet and interchangeable plugs. When he sets out on a project, Oki Sato aims to create what’s never been created before. “I wish to design something that I can’t think of,” the principal of Japanese Studio Nendo says. “If I can already imagine it, then it is less exciting for me.” 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 Flos (Manufacturer)

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.

We believe that light is more than just a basic need, it is a living substance that helps us express and explore new ideas and emotions. It makes sense of the past, it brightens our present, and it lends brilliance to the future. We align ourselves with the masters of design. From legends to new talents, we are proud to work with artists who are tuned into cultural conversation, who look to better their work by making it sustainable and beautiful, and who demand nothing less than excellence. We believe that provocation is a necessary element of evolution. We embrace the revolutionary spirits of our designers—we encourage them to seek out new poetic notions of functionality while staying ahead of the latest technological advancements. We believe in experimentation. It is how we have discovered the most influential and iconic elements of our work. No effort is wasted. We trust our intuition. We have confidence in our work and the work of our partners. We have fun. We offer pieces that are serious about their sense of playfulness and irony. We know our place. FLOS stands at the meeting point of art and design, of craftsmanship and industry, of limited editions and large scale manufacturing, and of the individual and the collective imagination. It is a unique space, and it is where we work best.
