In Vitro Outdoor Ceiling

c. 2020

by Philippe Starck
for Flos

Latin for in glass”, In Vitro outdoor ceiling light­ing remi­nisces on the classic lantern silhou­ette. Designed by Philippe Starck, this modern­ized struc­ture is within a collec­tion of In Vitro glass lanterns. It blends crafts­man­ship and tech­nol­ogy in a singu­lar design, conceal­ing the LED light source at the top to appear magi­cally lit. Its slim glass dome emanates a warm, atmos­pheric glow using EDGE LED tech­nol­ogy hidden by an opales­cent diffuser, protected by an aluminum shield. Avail­able as dimma­ble and non-dimmable.

In Vitro outdoor ceiling is offered in seven finishes: white, anthracite, black, deep brown, forest green, terra­cotta and pale green with a 2700K LED or 3000K LED Bulb. 

Philippe Starck

France (1949)

Philippe Starck has a mission and a vision: creation, whatever shape it takes, must make life better for the largest number of people possible. Starck believes this highly poetic, political, rebellious, benevolent, pragmatic and subversive duty must be borne by all and he resumes it with the humor that has accompanied his approach since the earliest days. Despite his thousands of projects - completed or in the making - he remains committed to never forgetting the essential.

Starck possesses an anticipatory concern for environmental implications. His profound comprehension of contemporary mutations, his enthusiasm for imagining new lifestyles, his determination to change the world, his devotion to a positive reduction, his love of ideas, his desire to defend the intelligence of usefulness - and the usefulness of intelligence - have accompanied one iconic creation after the other. His technological miracles are vectors of democratic ecology, focused on action and a respect for the future of both humans and nature. Predicting the phenomena of convergence and dematerialization, Philippe Starck has always devised objects that demand the most from the least.

Philippe Starck is all of the above, but above all, he is a man of honesty, in the purest tradition of the Renaissance artists.
