Gaku Light

c. 2018

by Nendo
for Flos

Gaku is an inno­v­a­tive modular light centered around an open ash frame that sets up for a world of options. Designed by Nendo for Flos, it is avail­able in two models, Gaku wire and Gaku wire­less. The wire model features a small white or black poly­car­bon­ate pendant light suspended inside the frame. The pendan­t’s height can be adjusted, and the bright­ness is modi­fied through a push-button dimmer switch on the power cord. The wire­less model inte­grates an induc­tion charger in the frame that powers a lamp through non-contact charg­ing. The portable lumi­nary can be moved to provide light wher­ever needed. Featur­ing four levels of bright­ness controlled through a dimmer switch on the light fitting, the fixture can operate for six to 48 hours autonomously. A battery indi­ca­tor light shows when it needs to be recharged.
