Flos iC Globe Lights by Michael Anastassiades: Perfectly Still and Balanced

Flos iC Globe Lights by Michael Anastassiades: Perfectly Still and Balanced“I came across a YouTube clip of a contact juggler. He has these spinning spheres moving around, and they are spinning so perfectly, you can’t even see them move — it looks perfectly balanced and perfectly still. This was my starting point.” Michael Anastassiades, the designer of Flos iC Globe Lights.

This collection explores balance. There is a series of lights: table lights, wall lights, ceiling pendants and ceiling mounted lights which take as their basic form a sphere that is perfectly balanced on the edge of a rod.

As for their model number / codes, the initials IC come from the codes that English police use to define the perceived ethnicity of a person they stop in the street when reporting back to the station. IC1 means white person or Northern European type, IC2 means Mediterranean European/Hispanic, IC3 indicates an African / Afro-Caribbean person, and so on, so this is a playful story to define the different designs.

Enjoy a collection of designer Flos iC globe lights for wall mounting, hanging from the ceiling, or table mounting available via Sparks and designed by Michael Anastassiades for Flos Lighting. Most of the ones on our website come in a lovely brass finish and in a small or larger globe size for a modern interior lighting.
