Soft Architecture from Flos

February 21, 2011

The Soft Architecture range from Flos features designs from Antonio Citterio, Ron Gilad, Philippe Starck, Marcel Wanders and Konstantin Grcic.

Developed by Italian lighting brand Flos, the Soft Architecture collection is a new lighting range that allows lighting designs to be integrated into the fabric of a building.

Made using an innovative composite eco-compatible material that is both lightweight and strong, Soft Architecture is a low-energy light source that can be integrated into hotels, bars, cafés, retail and commercial fitouts and residential interiors. The non-flammable material has received Cradle to Cradle certification.

Fusing light with architecture, Soft Architecture is available as four profiles: in, out, 3D and linear. Designers who have worked with Flos on the collection include Antonio Citterio, Ron Gilad, Philippe Starck, Sebastian Wrong, Marcel Wanders, Wellens & Leysen, Calvi Brambilla and Konstantin Grcic; Architects include Gallante + Menichini, Moreno & Ass, Bryan Chielens, Swyzen & Bastijns, Guy Sarlemijn, Ronald Fiegel, BBSC architects and Aerts + Blower.

Ron Gilad’s ‘wallpiercing’ design recently won ‘Best Wall Lights’ in the Wallpaper magazine Design Awards 2011. It also received the ‘Best Lighting 2011′ award from the Elle Decoration International Design Awards (EDIDA).

Flos’ Soft Architecture collection is now available in Australia through Euroluce.
