Flos Glo Ball Mini

The acid etched ball light has been a staple of lighting design companies for many years but the Glo Ball is simply different. Instead of striving to achieve the perfect sphere the Glo Ball is hand-blown oblate, in other words slightly flattened at the top and bottom. This gives the light a marvellous lateral sensibility, even visible on this, the Mini the smallest light in the range. The diminutive, white sphere seems to hang perfectly from its slim clear cable, never threatening to roll away and its flashed opaline glass diffuses the light beautifully providing bright, even illumination. Designed by Jasper Morrison in 1998 for Flos the Mini Glo Ball also comes in a ceiling or wall mounted version and in much larger sizes as hanging, standing floor and table lamps. This is an old idea reimagined in a new and marvellous way.

Jasper Morrison was born in London in 1959 and graduated in Design at Kingston Polytechnic Design School, London in 1982 and The Royal College of Art for Postgraduate studies in 1985. In 1984 he also studied at Berlin’s HdK on a Scholarship. In 1986 he set up an Office for Design in London. Today Jasper Morrison Limited consists of three design offices, a main office in London and two branch offices, one in Paris which was opened 2002 and one in Tokyo which opened in 2007, serving clients worldwide, all of whom are leaders in their individual fields. Services offered are wide ranging, from furniture to tableware, kitchen products and lighting, electronics and appliance design, designs for public space and more recently watches & shoes. Morrison was co-founder of Super Normal which had its inaugural exhibition in 2006 in Tokyo. In 2009 the Jasper Morrison Limited Shop opened in London and in 2011 the Jasper Morrison webshop was launched.

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.
