Design Classic – Flos 2097 light

July 1, 2013

As we head into July today we are adding another Design Classic to our monthly feature. This month we have chosen the Flos 2097 Pendant Light for entry into our Design Classics series, designed over 50 years ago and still specified around the world it deserves it’s place.

The fitting can be ordered with either 30 or 50 bulbs, and the central structure is available in either brass or chrome with a mirror finish. The adjustable cable extends to over 8m so if you have a tall ceiling, or a double height hallway this would be a perfect signature light.

The Flos 2097 Pendant light was designed by Gino Sarfatti who designed over 400 light fittings during his career working for Arteluce, the company he founded after leaving school. Interestingly Sarfatti was one of the first designers to include halogen bulbs in his fittings, he introduced them back in 1971. His company was acquired by Flos in the 1970’s and many of his designs are still manufactured today by Flos.
