Noctambule LED dimmable pendant light short cylinders by FLOS is the latest in the series of inventive lighting fixtures envisioned and executed by master designer Konstantin Grcic. This groundbreaking lighting system is made up of various units that blend together to provide illumination at the intersection between every module. Offered in a variety of artistic designs, Noctambule’s dimmer can be operated from its power unit within the ceiling rose or controlled using the pedal-enabled panel in its power cord.
The lamp’s cylindrical body and dynamic heads can be used to create a direct light source. Powered by LED technology, the lighting fixture’s foundation is a transparent cylinder (made using hand-blown glass). Grcic has modeled the lamp to be dynamic in nature – it can be used as a hanging light or standing lamp – and features additional components that allow the user to experiment with the product in unprecedented ways.
“Designing a lamp is no longer limited to working around a given bulb. Today, it means designing the actual bulb or light source. This challenged me to think of Parentesi, a lamp that celebrated the traditional bulb in the most effective and beautiful way. Would it be possible to rethink the Parentesi lamp once more and pass the Manzù-Castiglioni torch on to the future? – Konstantin Grcic
Born in 1965 in Munich, Konstantin Grcic developed his particular aesthetic and became a well-known industrial designer. In 1991, he founded Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design in his hometown. His design work was often informed by his foundation in traditional cabinetmaking and included furniture, lighting, and accessories, often with the incorporation of unusual or innovative materials. Grcic uses injection molded plastic and aluminum die casting for the overall design of furniture pieces rather than regulating these materials to simple structural components. He has collections featured both at MoMA in New York City and the Deutsches Museum in Munich. He has collaborated with Authentics, Flos, Krups, Magis, Moroso, Muji, Plank, and Vitra. Notable pieces by Grcic include Chair_One and the Mayday lamp.
