Flos Wan Ceiling

The Wan is a ceiling and wall light designed by Johanna Grawunder for Flos. Wan is the Japanese word for bowl, which in Japanese culture, is the most worthy, the most essential of all containers. It is this indispensable character that Grawunder has captured, a historical familiarity that chimes with all cultures. Designed to work on its own, in groups or lines the Wan is very versatile, as happy on the wall as it is on the ceiling. It is excellent in long hallways or kitchens and looks fantastic when used instead of inset downlights, anywhere in a fact where bright light with reduced glare is required. The Wan is made from polished or lacquered aluminium and with its internal gradient and tempered glass diffuser is nothing less than a beautiful bowlful of light.

Johanna Grawunder is an industrial designer and architect based in Milan, Italy but she also works extensively in San Francisco in the United States. Her work is very varied spanning a broad range of disciplines, projects and scales, from architecture and interiors, to limited edition furniture and lights for various galleries in Europe and the USA. Johanna Grawunder has also collaborated on product development and design with a few select companies including Flos, Boffi, B&B Italia and Salviati among others. She worked with Sottsass Associati from 1985 until 2001, becoming a partner with Ettore Sottsass and other associates in 1989. At the Sottsass Studio she was involved primarily with Architecture and interiors, co-designing with Ettore Sottsass on many of the firm’s most prestigious projects. In 2001 she left Sottsass Associati and opened her own studio in San Francisco and Milan, and has found considerable success, gaining a reputation for work with a bold simplicity and cultural authenticity.

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.
