Not just lighting fixtures, but elements capable of blending perfectly into an outdoor context, following the natural rhythms of flora and fauna. These are the new creations of the Outdoor Spring 2021 collection by Flos. Families of coordinated lighting devices punctuate the open-air ambience, balancing aesthetic elegance, low environmental impact and the most advanced technologies (like the new anti-corrosion treatments).

Among the new offerings, In Vitro Unplugged stands out, as the latest addition to the elegant In Vitro family of outdoor lights created by Philippe Starck for Flos Outdoor. It is a glass lantern, rechargeable and portable, with a handy fastener in soft-touch orange silicone to facilitate movement into any location – though designed for outdoor use, it is also ideal as an indoor lamp. The head conceals a luminous disk, an ultra-flat circular LED light source, whose glow is captured and spread by an empty sealed capsule in borosilicate glass, creating a magical volume of light.

An absolutely new entry, on the other hand, is Pointbreak by Piero Lissoni: a family featuring exceptional technology and essential but sophisticated design, starting with the original super-circle form (halfway between a square and a circle), with light emission at 360°. Conceived as a technological candle, it is ideal for gardens, plazas, parks, public and residential spaces.
The great variety of models, available in various diameters and sizes, all offer the soft, delicate light of Pointbreak, an almost imperceptible presence designed so as not to interfere with the setting, if not in a sensual way, becoming a reliable point of reference along a path.
