Parentesi Suspension Lamp


The word "Parentesi" (Italian for "brackets" or "parenthesis") refers to the nickel- plated shaped tube on a ceiling to floor steel cable that is connected to the floor and ceiling and can reach up to 157". The tube allows the lamp head to move vertically along the cable. The head fixture is an injection-molded black elastomer that comes with a switch.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Parentesi, Flos re-introduces the iconic lamp with two new colours: Orange & Turquoise.

Designed in 1971, Parentesi can rotate 360 degrees while it glides on a floor-to-ceiling steel cable, held in place by an 11-pound weight. Originally a pencil sketch by two great designers who worked together but never met.

A Flos best seller for 50 years, now available in the colours they loved. The story of Parentesi is special - it draws from ingenuity, a pinch of magic, and a lot of respect.

Packaging: Flos is also bringing back its original transparent packaging with a slight improvement, now using recyclable material.
