Iconic Flos IC Light Gets a Cool New Finish
The Flos IC Light by Michael Anastassiades remains as compelling today as it was four years ago when it first debuted—especially given the addition of a new slick black finish.
A collection of floor, table, wall, and suspension lamps featuring a spherical diffuser perched precariously (so it would seem) on a cylindrical shaft, IC is an arresting piece that appears to defy gravity.
The name derives from “Identity Codes,” an assignation used by the British police to signify different ethnic groups. The idea is to convey a pictorial representation of the “balancing act” that certain ethnicities must perform in order to assimilate without sacrificing their broader cultural values.
Metaphorical meaning aside, IC is lovely to look at. Anastassiades expands the “balancing act” by utilizing bases and stems of different dimensions and varying angularity, creating a comprehensive collection—unified by the spherical diffuser, yet enlivened by the varied configurations of the different shapes and lengths.
