Light sculpture: Ipnos by FLOS

Introducing Ipnos, a new outdoor-indoor LED light sculpture designed by Rossi & Bianchi Studio for FLOS. The lighting was created with elements of a modern-day lantern, as it was designed in the unique shape of a hollow cuboid, from which light floats between its metal frames, something only possible with LED technology. Weighing only two  pounds, Ipnos is portable, yet remains sturdy. The LEDs are hidden within the top edges of the skeletal edging, protected by transparent PC diffusers, and can be dimmed or brightened by a switch on the power cord. The lamp is available in black, bronze or natural. All finishes are anodized.

With Ipnos, Italian architects Nicoletta Rossi and Guido Bianchi are teaming up with Italian lighting manufacturer FLOS for the first time.
