flos / the light suites
in this short serie designers reveal and explain what lies behind flos most famous products.

Episode One, Superloon by Jasper Morrison

“Design makes things seem special, and who wants normal if they can have special? And that’s the problem. There are better ways to design than putting a big effort into making something look special. Special is generally less useful than normal, and less rewarding in the long term”

Taccia was initially designed by the Castiglioni brothers with a transparent plastic bowl reflector but, to their surprise, they found that intense heat flattened the bowl. Watch the video and hear Achille tell the original story.
