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.

Konstantin Grcic

Germany (1965)

“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.
