Flos Spun T1

The Spun table light, which comes in two sizes, is a beautiful idea beautifully resolved. Upon the top of a swooping, gleaming trumpet base magically hangs a high gloss drum and resting within the drum’s supporting arms lies a hidden opaque, pressed glass diffuser. The spun aluminium of the base is also used for the drum giving the light a sculptural continuity. This is maintained even when the lamp is turned on as the metal shade creates a spill of dimmable light from its top and bottom which throws the lamp into relief. The paint finish on the lamp is extraordinary, a super high gloss that clearly demonstrates the quality of the metalwork beneath and comes in three finishes, black, white and mud. The Spun, which is also available as a floor light, is a rare object both in its conception and its execution, it is hard to imagine how it could be improved upon.

Sebastian Wrong was born in 1971 in London, England and studied for a degree in Fine Art at Norwich School of Art and Camberwell School of Art, graduating BA Hons in 1993. His education, in the field of sculpture, has carried over to his design practice which has developed within a 3D fine art framework. His interests are in material manipulation, purity of form, function and honesty of design. The work is cultivated from the balance between function, aesthetics and refinement. Purpose begets beauty. Drove Limited was formed in September 2001 and the Spun Light was the first product that the new company designed. It was launched in 2001 at 100% Design in London and 2002 at the Salone Satellite in Milan. The Spun exemplifies everything that is right about Wrong and was shortlisted for the Peugeot design award in 2001 and has rapidly become a modern classic. It is a tribute to its presence and clarity of design that it is often thought of as a light that has been around a lot longer.

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.
