The design of the Flos String Light draws its inspiration from everyday items such as pylons. The designer quotes - "Every time I take the train, I sit by the window and watch the series of perfectly parallel strings connecting the pylons, as we move at high speed. I love the way they divide the landscape and how spheres are occasionally beaded through the wires at random intervals. I also love how, in Mediterranean cultures, strings of lights are stretched between posts to mark an outdoor space for an evening party in a village square. And finally, I love how human ingenuity works around problems created by everyday things in the house (like switches and power points) that others have chosen to position where we don’t want them."
The design also stems from practicality and having the ability to take the light where you wish it to be without being governed by where the electricity points are situated. The String Lights translate this vision and discipline into an interior environment. You can choose either a 12 or 22 metre cable, Wall rose or Floor Switch (dependent on your chosen composition and these secure the cables in place) and it comes with a wall mounting kit (an assortment of both white or black pegs to attach into the wall). You can control the String lights with your iPhone and it was the winner of the Homes & Gardens designer award.
