A picture for Flos


The end of 2013 was full of very good news for FNWG and me, as some of you already know through my Facebook. But, the loads of work and all the family trips arranged for Christmas holidays made impossible to share it with you, also due to an almost complete lack of internet connection during those days. 
I'm happy to tell you the worldwide famous Italian brand FLOS contacted me because they wanted to use a picture of my MayDay lamp to include in the styling for the Gift Collection this past Christmas.



FLOS  has been one of the world leaders in decorative lighting for the last 50 years for their combination of high quality and innovative design and production. Some of their works are among the most iconic pieces not only of Italian design but of design worldwide, as testified by the number of them included in the Moma collection. I must confess I have a great passion for their products: Castiglioni's Parentesi is hanging beautifully in our living room and, hopefully, the 265 by Paolo Rizzatto will also be part of our home soon.



The picture that captured Flos attention was the one in this post: the white space turned out to be the perfect background to underline the MayDay lamp, designed by Grcic and used here as a bedside light. Eventually, the photograph selected was the one above that was never published: I find it has got a more delicate touch and a Japanese memory in it.

While preparing the post, I checked Flos selection and couldn't help to pick a few of their lamps for a special wish list: any of these objects would be a most desirable element to have at home. I really struggle to choose one in particular:  how is it possible to prefer Gatto Piccolo by Castiglioni to Tab T or Piani's table lamp  by the Bouroullec brothers?
