In Vitro Suspension

c. 2020

for Flos

In Vitro outdoor suspen­sion is a part of an elegant outdoor light­ing collec­tion by Philippe Starck. Trans­lat­ing to inside glass”, In Vitro plays on the class lantern shape to create a dimma­ble or non-dimma­ble contem­po­rary struc­ture. In Vitro blends crafts­man­ship and tech­nol­ogy in a singu­lar design, conceal­ing the 2700K or 3000K 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 in seven finishes: white, anthracite, black, deep brown, forest green, terra­cotta, pale green. 

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.
