FLOS Chrysalis Floor Lamp by Marcel Wanders

Estimated Production Time9-10 weeks

About

The chrysalis floor lamp was designed by Marcel Wanders in 2011. The internal structure of the Chrysalis is made of steel. The "cocoon" resin used in the diffuser coat was originally used by the Castiglioni Brothers & Tobia Scarpa in the 1960s. While the method to produce this resin has remained the same, it has been enhanced and tempered to cater to the shape of the modern floor lamp. The Chrysalis is equipped with two light sources that are controlled by dual pedal switches mounted on a power cable. The body of the fixture is lit with a 54W T5 fluorescent and the pattern is projected from the top of the fixture with a 60W T4 halogen. Both bulbs are included. The second switch controls the halogen at the top for the projection of the decorative frieze onto the ceiling. The Chrysalis floor lamp emits diffused light. The base of the lamps is printed ABS. The frieze is a silk-screened glass placed at the top end of the reflector obtained by spinning. The lamp comes with a 112 inch power cable. Inspiration Behind the Design: The designer, Marcel Wanders, derived his inspiration from the "chrysalis", which is a butterfly’s pupa. This item is compatible only in the United States.

About Flos (Manufacturer)

Founded by Sergio Gandini in 1962 in Merano Italy, FLOS has revolutionized the art of lighting by honoring tradition while embracing innovation.


FLOS is, above all else, about craftmanship, and as a result the brand has cultivated long and successful partnerships with some of the world’s most renowned lighting artists. Working with icons such as the Castiglioni Brothers , Tobia Scarpa, Philippe Starck and Antonio Citterio, among others, FLOS has earned the respect of the industry while growing its offerings to include residential, commercial, and custom-made concept-based products.


An award winning institution in its own right, FLOS has earned worldwide recognition as the leader in the field.


Today, Sergio’s grandson Piero Gandini sits at the helm, holding fast to the values and ideas established by his grandfather while moving confidently into the future.

About The Maker

For over 50 years, FLOS has sought to illuminate the human experience by offering finely crafted pieces by the world’s most beloved artists. We do it by remaining true to our core values. We believe that light is more than just a basic need, it is a living substance that helps us express and explore new ideas and emotions. It makes sense of the past, it brightens our present, and it lends brilliance to the future. We align ourselves with the masters of design. From legends to new talents, we are proud to work with artists who are tuned into cultural conversation, who look to better their work by making it sustainable and beautiful, and who demand nothing less than excellence. We believe that provocation is a necessary element of evolution. We embrace the revolutionary spirits of our designers—we encourage them to seek out new poetic notions of functionality while staying ahead of the latest technological advancements. We believe in experimentation. It is how we have discovered the most influential and iconic elements of our work. No effort is wasted. We trust our intuition. We have confidence in our work and the work of our partners. We have fun. We offer pieces that are serious about their sense of playfulness and irony. We know our place. FLOS stands at the meeting point of art and design, of craftsmanship and industry, of limited editions and large scale manufacturing, and of the individual and the collective imagination. It is a unique space, and it is where we work best.
