The simple concept behind the Glo-ball family of lights is to obtain the maximum diffusion of light, this is achieved by the use of hand-blown, etched white opaline glass. The form: a flattened globe appears, like the moon, as a flat disc when illuminated.
Jasper Morrison (born 1959) is an English product and furniture designer.
Morrison was born in London, England. He was educated at Bryanston School. He received a Bachelor of Design degree from Kingston Polytechnic Design School in 1982 and a Master's degree in Design from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1985. He also studied at the Berlin University of the Arts, formerly the Hochschule für Bildende Künste. In March 2007, he was awarded an honorary doctorate in design from Kingston University.
Today, Morrison is one of a small group of industrial designers, together with his former student Konstantin Grcic, Hella Jongerius, Satyendra Pakhale and Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, who work on a global scale by using advanced technology to develop mass-manufactured products
For fifty years Flos has been crafting objects of light and shedding brightness on generations of dreams.
Light is the substance for expressing new ideas and illuminating unexplored emotions. they write the future, reading their past and expressing the present, in a continuity of positive challenges and bold choices that have shaped their image and identity.
Trusting their intuition has always allowed them to create products that become icons, establishing new typologies and innovative archetypes. Connecting with masters of design. Discovering new talents. Commanding high technical and technological status. Staying tuned into mass culture. These qualities always place Flos at the cutting edge.
Experimentation opens the way for Flos to use revolutionary materials - as in the past with Cocoon - and hi-tech solutions, today represented by OLEDs and eco-sustainable materials.
By conceiving new languages around light, they chart new aesthetics and freedoms for living. Their lamps, of yesterday and today, never fail to be serious about their sense of play and irony.
On the fine line that divides and unites art and design, craftsmanship and industry, the limited edition and larger scale manufacturing, an individual’s idea and the collective imagination. That’s Flos' place. That’s where you’ll find them.
