Flos Ktribe S2

The Ktribe is another wonderful suspension light from Philippe Starck and Flos. The S2, in common with all of the Ktribe lights, has two separate diffusers, an outer hard ribbed shade and an internal opaque shade, which becomes more visible when the light is illuminated. The light comes in three sizes S1, S2 and S3 and is available in aluminised silver and fume with the S2 and S3 also available in aluminised bronze and transparent. The S1 is considerably smaller than its siblings and hangs from its power cable whilst the S2 and S3 hang from three fine steel cables. The S2 is a big light and works well on its own or in a line over a counter but whichever size you choose this is a fantastic light which can add a little drama to any room.

Appearance: Outer shade in silver, fume, bronze or transparent with white inner diffuser.
Design: 2007. By Philippe Starck for Flos.
Material: Polycarbonate and polymethylmethacrylate.
Cable: 4m clear slack power cable, three steel hanging cables, white rose.
Sizes: S2 Diameter 39.5cm. H: 30cm. S3 Diameter 55cm. H 45cm. S1 Diameter 24cm. H 19cm.
Bulb: E27 HSGS 150w or any suitable E27 LED. Not included.

Philippe Starck was born in 1949 in Paris, France. The son of an aeronautical engineer, Starck studied at the École Camondo in Paris. Starck's first iconoclastic designs, an early indicator of Starck's interest in where and how people live, brought him to the attention of Pierre Cardin who offered him a job as artistic director of his publishing house. At the same time, Starck set up his first industrial design company, Starck Product and began working with manufacturers in Italy and internationally. His concept of democratic design led him to focus on mass-produced consumer goods rather than one-off pieces. Starck's prolific output expanded to include furniture, decoration, architecture and basically everything in between. The buildings he designed went against traditional norms, the first, in Tokyo was clad in a living material that evolved over time. Starck believes that creation, whatever form it takes, must improve the lives of as many people as possible, he is a true renaissance man.

For fifty years Flos have been crafting objects out of light. Light is the medium they work in order to express new ideas and illuminate emotions. Flos see the future, embrace the past and live in the present, facing the challenges and choices that have shaped their image and identity. History has taught them to fan the flames of provocation into new poetic notions of functionality, to trust intuition, to dare to create products that no one else would and to establish new typologies and archetypes. Flos are connected to the old masters of design yet happy to promote new talents, to command high technological status, to be revered for what they have done and what they might yet do. Flos open the way through experimentation and the use of revolutionary materials, they strive to conceive new languages around light and to chart new aesthetics, new freedoms for living. Flos walk the fine line between art and design, craftsmanship and industry, between an individual idea and the collective imagination.
