Flos Ray

The Ray suspension light is part of a series of lights designed by Rodolfo Dordoni for Flos. It is a curious but lovely juxtaposition of a sleek aluminium or glass drum shade hanging from a chrome plated twig like structure. The chrome twigs guide steel cables down from the white ceiling rose to the shade rim which itself houses a grey opaline glass diffuser which reduces glare. The light emitted by the diffuser is reflected off the white inner surface of the shade and provides bright, even, dimmable light. The drum itself comes in two colours, high gloss black or high gloss white and in a hand blown grey opalescent glass. This glass matches the inner diffuser so that the entire body of the light melds into a whole which gives off a generous amount of ambient illumination. The Ray is made in only one size but is beautifully proportioned and detailed so it works well in open spaces and over counters or tables, in singles or in a line, it is also available as a table and a floor light.

Rodolfo Dordoni was born in 1954 in Milan, Italy where he graduated in architecture at the Milan Polytechnic. As an architect and designer Dordoni was the co founder of Dordoni Architetti, a design studio founded in Milan with Luca Zaniboni and Alessandro Acerbi. The company specialises in the field of architectural planning and interior design in the residential, commercial and exhibition areas and also in designing private houses and villas, industrial and commercial spaces and overseeing the realisation of showrooms, exhibition stands, restaurants and hotels. Dordoni has over the years been responsible for art direction within many great companies which include Artemide, Cappellini, FontanaArte, Foscarini, and Minotti. He has also designed products for Artemide, Cassina, Ceramica Flaminia, Ceramiche Mutina, Dada, Dornbracht, Driade, Emu, Flos, Jab, Kettal, MatteoGrassi, Minotti, Olivari, Roda, Salvatori and Serralunga amongst others.

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.
