The Aim lamp is designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and serves as an adjustable ceiling fixture, that offers variety in directing the light and the hanging height of the fixture. Like so many of the Bouroullecs’ designs, the concept of growth and the visual elements associated with vegetation are abstracted and again figure prominently with their Aim lamps for Flos. The premise of the Aim suspension lamps is two-fold… direct light (ergo its “aim” moniker) and celebration of the swagging and looping “vine-like” sculpture of cords. As with many of the Bouroullecs’ designs, the user becomes an active participation in “shaping” the object’s ultimate aesthetic.
Objects created by the Bouroullec brothers are known to have a simple design that appeals to a wide array of people. Born in the Brittany area of France, Ronan (b. 1971) and Erwan (b. 1976) Bouroullec are designers of furniture, vases, porcelain dishware, jewelry, and home accessories. After graduating design schools in France, they began designing objects and displaying their work in gallery shows which resulted in collaborations with many well known companies including Alessi, Cappellini, Ligne Roset, Habitat, Domeau and Peres, Authentics, E and W, Magis, Vitra, HAY, Gallery Kreo, Kvadrat, and Kartell. In 1998, the Bouroullec brothers became joint partners in their Paris design studio. Their work often examines both the form of an object as well as its material. They pay close attention to how a chair or table might have being designed with a material in the past, and use that to inform how they might design it in the present.
The Aim lamp features single or multiple diffuser heads – each with a gently tapered form and is available in varnished sheet aluminum in satin black finished enamel. The Aim suspension lamps can be purchased individually or in groups of three or five pendant heads. The cable for the three and five diffuser versions are available as a dimmable hard-wired fixture with a special canopy that will accommodate multiple diffusers.
