Based on the Bouroullec original Liane model light, which was covered in leather and featured in an exhibition of their work in 2010, the Aim lamp for Italian lighting brand Flos is an industrial version that has been designed with tougher materials such as polycarbonate and die-cast aluminium.

At the start of the 19th century the first banker’s lamps appeared. This desk lamp with characteristic brass base and green glass shade was originally used by bankers because they spent hours and hours staring at small figures and needed extra light. The Goldman lamp was named after an investment/banker’s company and was now refreshed by Ron Gilad  with modern LED lighting technology and sleek, straight lines.

The name Florensis is derived from Latin and is composed of “flora” and “sis” which (translated freely) means “flourishing together”. The word flora (flower) is a logical choice as it is obviously shown in the design of this product.

Ross Lovegrove, the creator of the Florensis, is a famous Irish designer who is known for among others the Artemide Mercury and the Louis Poulsen Aeros. The bearded designer often finds his inspiration in organic shapes and object from nature. The same applies for the Florensis. Artemide company presented Florensis in its new collection in ISaloni 2013 (Milan).
