Light Bell Pendant

c. 2015

by Piero Lissoni
for Flos

The Light Bell Pendant is an upgraded indus­trial chic light — think high bay, then think again because the Light Bell is no ware­house fixture. Avail­able in three exquis­ite finish options of concrete, glass, and white. Propor­tion and clear purpose rings true in this stylish spin on the utilitarian classic.

Taking the shape of a classic bell, the Light Bell diffuser options offer elegance where low energy, high perfor­mance light is required. The shape of the reflec­tor and opales­cent diffuser were care­fully prescribed to control the high output LED light engine. LED cooling is managed through the inno­v­a­tive pin and fin heat sink which discretely contains the integral driver. 

Piero Lissoni

Italy (1956)

Industrial but playful might sound like a contradiction, but in the hands of Piero Lissoni, it makes perfect sense. The Italian architect and designer has become one of the most accomplished of his generation, with collaborations with everyone from Alessi to Flos to Tecno. After training as an architect at the prestigious Politecnico di Milano University, Lissoni formed his own firm to create witty takes on modernism’s clean lines.

In 1996, he launched a visual communication agency, Graph.x, followed 17 years later by Lissoni Architettura, which handles interior design projects. But Lissoni’s furnishings really show off his charm: his Otto seating system for Cassina, named for the way the numeral is pronounced in Italian, tosses a titular number of comfy cushions into a slim aluminum rectangle for a perfect blend of hard and soft. And his Extrasoft system for Living Divani tosses away the frame entirely. It’s a chic take on the kid’s bedroom favorite, the beanbag, but with a lifetime’s worth of possible arrangements.
