Belt Pendant

c. 2020

by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec
for Flos

Belt is a dimma­ble pendant light that creates a balance between the soft­ness of leather and the rigid­ity of aluminum, with the body of this tech­ni­cal light covered in fine leather. Designed by the Bouroul­lec broth­ers, the soft part is repre­sented by the connec­tion to the elec­tri­cal network, while the rigid parts corre­spond to the light source, the long lines of light.

Profile length is 71.2″ inches, avail­able in black, natural leather, and green finishes.. Each profile is equipped with inte­grated direct and indi­rect light­ing and each light source can be controlled indi­vid­u­ally via remote control. The product is installed with the use of leather straps to hang the light­ing profile, sliding the straps through dedi­cated metal clasps that act as hooks on the ceiling. Each strap may be regu­lated to match the shape of the envi­ron­ment. The elec­tri­cal connec­tion is hidden within the leather strap, which supports the composition.

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

France

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are two of the most prolific and in-demand designers working today, and they continually collaborate with the industry’s leading brands, including Alessi, Cappellini, Ligne Roset, HAY, Kvadrat, and Kartell.

Since 1999, the brothers have jointly operated a Paris-based studio, where they produce office, residential, and outdoor furniture, tabletop accessories, rugs, and much more. As they help move the design industry in new and interesting directions, the Bouroullecs look to varied inspirations from the past. They have cited American designers of the 1940’s and 1950’s and Italian designers of the 1970’s and 1980’s as influences.

The duo is obsessed with material clarity, and they often rely on material to guide the design direction of the piece they are working on. For instance, their Officina collection for Magis is defined by its amazingly delicate wrought-iron supports, while their Slow armchair for Vitra features an unexpected knit sling cover. The Bouroullecs have helped shape contemporary office design with numerous products for Vitra, including flexible Workbays and high-back Alcove seating, that add privacy and noise mitigation to modern workspaces.
