IC was conceived for Italian lighting manufacturer FLOS, a company renowned for its impressive portfolio of lighting icons that are created in collaboration with designers of international acclaim. As an icon for modern times, IC Light certainly does not disappoint.

Michael Anastassiades, who is based in London and whose works can be found in prestigious museums around the world, was inspired by contact jugglers who gracefully spin orbs on their bodies. The designer conjures this mesmerising motion with a collection of lamps in which the luminous blown-glass diffuser sits elegantly poised on a steel frame that twists and bends at an angle like a whimsical character.

In IC Light, the designer’s love for industrial simplicity meets intricate symbolism, giving rise to an icon designed almost as a sculpture piece. It’s a work of art that brings on a smile, evokes emotion, and yes, it can even start off a conversation when guests come around – the IC holds that much presence.

The steel frame comes in the finish options of brass, chrome, black and burgundy.
