When functionality meets magical design: Flos Miss K
The interplay of materials – a classic textile shade combined with the lighting body’s modern transparent plastics – makes the Flos
Miss K a timeless lamp which emits a warm, even light for tables, sideboards and chests of drawers.
The Miss K
is a designer lamp by Philippe Starck that has been awarded the red dot award. The work of the French star designer impressively shows how traditional design can be combined with new technologies. So the outer diffuser of the Flos Miss K table lamp
is made from transparent, aluminium-coated methacrylate, also known as acrylic, enriched with special colour pigments. Its inner shade is made from injection-molded polycarbonate. Due to this consistence, the shade creates a unique mood of lighting that characterizes this luminaire perfectly and captivates the fascination of the observer even when the table lamp
is switched off. Special feature: An integrated dimmer that allows you to adjust the illumination output to suit the task or need and that even glows when the Flos Miss K isn’t turned on – so nobody has to fumble around in the dark.
One more genuine masterpiece of this collection is the Flos Miss K Soft
. This luminaire also exceeds in uniting magic appearance, modern materials and fascinating lighting effects. The Miss K Soft table lamp artfully combines its nostalgic-looking textile shade in the version “eggshell” with the transparent plastic body of the lamp. When you switch the Flos Miss K Soft
on, the smooth light is spread evenly throughout the space. Here, an integrated dimmer also allows for the individual adjustment of the lighting intensity. Speaking of dimmers: Here, too, the accomplished design of the Flos Miss K lamp becomes evident. The resistance dimmer is housed in a transparent casing on the likewise transparent power cable and can be adjusted from 0 to 100 %.
The Flos Miss K
can be used in a wide range of application. For example, it can serve as night lighting and can be put on a bedside table in the bedroom. It can also be placed on a side table, sideboard, or a chest of drawer in the living room, where it proved ideal to create mood lighting. A cabinet in the kitchen or the dining room is also an appropriate place for the Miss K table lamp
. Even children rejoice in having a Flos lamps, which stands for atmospheric illumination
