2007 BELVEDERE, FLOS
On paper, the cartoon shapes and chunky
curves of the Antonio Citterio-designed
Belvedere exterior light fitting shouldn’t
work, especially in a world where LEDs
are driving the miniature and the light,
but work it does.
2003 SAGITTA, ARTEMIDE
This opal blown-glass lozenge
wouldn’t have worked in a lesser
material, one suspects. Thomas
Sandell’s creation also pulls off the
standard Flos trick of looking like it
has been around forever.
