Flos Goldman

The Goldman desk light by Ron Gilad for Flos is possibly a slightly contentious object in that it seems oblivious to its potentially negative antecedents as a banker’s lamp. Unless of course you are a banker in which case happy days. Regardless of how you feel about its design lineage there is no denying that the Goldman is possessed of a rather lovely form and is brimming with LED tech. The Goldman comes in two finishes, either a bright brass body with a clear green diffuser or a gleaming black nickel body with a black tinted diffuser and has the latest dimmable soft touch optical switch on the base. Be sure to check the measurements carefully as the lamp may be smaller than you expect (unlike the bonuses at Goldman Sachs) but with its fixed head and brilliant 8w 42 LED head it is still very illuminating.

Ron Gilad was born in 1972 in Tel-Aviv and now lives and works in New York City. Ron has a love of the combined, the appropriated and builds elaborate hybrid objects that merge the material with aesthetic play. These objects are by definition unique and sit on the fat, delicious line between the abstract and the functional. His works attempt to explain or interpret the relationship between the object and its function, questioning our perceptions about the physical and the mechanical. Varying from one-off commissions to limited editions and production pieces, the works have no expiration date and can be found in both public and private collections worldwide. Gilad asks unceasing questions in a 3 dimensional form and fabricates answers that create an arena for fertile doubt. ‘What is it for?’ Is almost always immediately followed by ‘Ah, I see’. Metaphorically, Gilad is a linguist, creating his own language. He learns the origins of words and develops new synonyms.

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.
