Flaca, meaning skinny in Spanish, is a super thin LED Light created by the Mexican industrial design trio known as Masiosare Studio. Characterized by a slew of hyphenated adjectives—laser-cut, flat-pack, easy-assemble, and high-powered—Flaca is made of one sheet of light stainless steel. Put it together in five easy steps, and you get a versatile, bright task light that’s energy-efficient, recyclable, and light as air.

Flat-Pack and Lightweight Stainless Steel Task Lamp
Winner of the TreeHugger's "Best of Green Readers’ Choice Award" and "Innovation Award Winner" at the National Contest of Design in Stainless Steel 2009, Flaca minimizes waste material through its sleek design. Its tri-fold sheet of stainless steel creates a lamp that bends ever so cleverly, reaching any height up to 14 inches.
The efficient LEDs of Flaca require less than 10% energy of a common light bulb, making it an illuminated illumination system. On your desk, Flaca can be manipulated and customized—it’s a task light that won’t weigh you down. And, should you ever tire of this skinny number, the lamp is fully recyclable. Flaca is available via the Destination: Mexico collection at MOMA.
