Designed by Ron Gilad in 2013.
Born in Israel in 1972, designer Ron Gilad studied industrial design at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. Between 1999 and 2001, he taught 3-D and conceptual design at the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Ramat Gan, Israel. He moved to New York in 2001, and cofounded the studio Designfenzider. Since 2006, he has taught at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
Ron Gilad's often minimalist designs include everything from jewelry to furniture and interiors. Through his work, he consistently attempts to deconstruct the function of a given object, and in the process redefines its purpose and context.
His work is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York's Museum of Arts and Design, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, as well as multiple private collections.
Flos, the Italian brand of lighting par excellence, is on the borderline that unites and divides art and design, manufacturing and industry, individual creation and collective imagination.
With over 50 years of activity, Flos has received numerous Compasso D'Oro, one of the most important design awards in the world, the result of the work philosophy the brand has adopted since the beginning: to work with the best designers in the world (whether undiscovered talents or established masters), using revolutionary techniques and materials and always keeping abreast of cultural and market trends.
The entire history of Flos is full of transformative moments and design icons, such as the Arco and Parentesi lamps, designed by the Castiglioni brothers, or the Ktribe family of lamps by Philippe Starck. A Flos catalogue is not only an inventory of iconic lamps, but also a true directory of established designers such as Gino Sarfatti, Rodolfo Dordoni, Antonio Citterio, Marcel Wanders, Konstantin Grcic, Jasper Morrison, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec or Patricia Urquiola.
Today, experimentation opens up new paths with the use of avant-garde materials and hi-tech solutions, such as OLED technology and new eco-sustainable materials. Flos' commitment to sustainability is impressive. The company actively seeks environmentally friendly solutions throughout its design and manufacturing processes. It incorporates energy-efficient technologies and materials, ensuring that its lighting fixtures not only provide exceptional illumination but also minimize their impact on the planet.
In addition to its residential lighting solutions, Flos has also made significant contributions to the architectural lighting industry. The company has worked on prestigious projects around the globe, collaborating with architects to create custom lighting solutions that enhance the beauty and functionality of spaces.
Flos isn't just another lighting company, it's a cultural one. Merging tecnhology and emotion, it integrates light into architecture and nature, bringing a sophisticated, poetic sensibility to all its creations. Taking the long view, Flos creates sustainable and timeless lighting fixtures, each of which it refines to its truest essence.
