Black Flag, whose name is inspired by the pioneering and rebellious spirit of a famous punk rock band, is the latest result of Flos’ collaboration with German designer Konstantin Grcic: an extensible wall lamp, composed of one vertical and three horizontal bars, designed to take up minimum space when closed and provide maximum illumination when open.

Minimal and light, with a marked functionality, Black Flag is a strong presence in a room, due to the geometries created by the three extensible bars that compose it. When these are closed, adhering to the vertical bar, Black Flag looks like a sculpture affixed to the wall. Once opened, the extendable arms carry the light up to three meters and sixty centimeters from the frame, transforming what was a discreet presence into an illuminating centerpiece, functioning like a pendant.

The result is a powerful and homogeneous illumination, designed to perfectly cover even a large work surface, or a wide living area and many other types of spaces.

«The Black Flag lamp embodies the rebellious spirit of its namesake while also serving as a functional and striking piece of design. Its unique ability to extend up to 3,5 meters from the wall brings light to the heart of any space, while its folded form resembles a sleek and powerful sculpture. It’s a statement piece that commands attention, yet remains humble in its purpose», Konstantin Grcic.
