Super­loon

for Flos

The Super­loon floor lamp uses revo­lu­tion­ary Edge Light­ing Tech­nol­ogy to combine maximum perfor­mance and effi­ciency with visual comfort. The serene, harmo­nious glow of the moon inspired this inno­v­a­tive and first-of-its-kind design from artist Jasper Morri­son. This strik­ing floor lamp includes a Dim-to-Warm func­tion that responds to adjust­ments in inten­sity: As it dims, light tran­si­tions from a colder blue to a warmer tone, as with a well-loved filament lamp.

The Super­loon floor lamp provides direct light. Its painted or chrome-plated aluminum body features a metal spin­ning head, die-cast joints, and an extruded stem. The diffuser is silk-screened PMMA (Poly­methyl methacry­late). The light source is Edge Light­ing, and there is an optical switch sensor on the stem that enables the warm tone dimming func­tion. The stem includes the Soft Touch sensor, which guar­an­tees fluid and precise control of light flow with a simple and natural touch of the hand.
