Flar: Patrick Norguet designs the blown glass for Lodes

Expert in contemporary design lighting solutions, the Italian Lodes is continuing its collaboration with the French multidisciplinary designer Patrick Norguet who projects Flar, a minimalist sculptural floor and table lamp. Its name evokes a sparkle, an intense glow or glimpse of light (in French also called “flamboiement”).

The lamp is inspired by traditional windproof lanterns, equipped with glass tubes to protect the flame. The rounded glass lampshade is one of its distinguishing features: it was designed to enclose a filament LED bulb that amplifies the light source and diffuses a warm and vibrant glow. Flar masterfully combines metal and glass, iconic materials of Lodes. The steel base opens up like a flower and welcomes the blown-glass lampshade. The contrast between the precision of the 3D laser cutting of the base and the uniqueness of the bubble, with its pleasantly imperfect charm, enhances the amazing artisanship of Lodes. With its blown and colored lampshade, Flar is a refined mood lamp even when turned off. 

The available shades of the glass are honey and turquoise, while the base can be selected in champagne and earth tones, warm shades with a touch of pink, orange and brown. Following Lodes style, the two elements can be combined with different finishes.
The lamp is equipped with a dimmer, adjustable by means of a switch mounted on the cable, to select the desired light intensity. Available in two versions - 47 cm and 62.5 cm - Flar collection is elegant and versatile. When combined, the two dimensions offer the possibility of playing with proportions, creating exceptional compositions even in contract spaces, ranging from hotel lounge areas to retail.
