A piece that incorporates innovative connection systems and artisan hand-sewn fabric, the FLOS Fabric Belt Suspension Light brings two parallel worlds together in one fluid lighting solution. Boasting a single sinuous line, the light’s artistic arrangement can transform even the most modest spaces, creating a compelling composition when suspended central to a dining table or kitchen island. The luxurious fabric casing, available in multiple colourways, has become one of the defining traits of the design, developed to achieve a smooth configuration without apparent interruptions.
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, the Breton-born brothers, are the stars of European design and the most promising industrial designers to have emerged from France since Philippe Starck in the 1980s.
A combination of romanticism and functionality runs throughout both brothers’ work. Like all truly talented designers, the Bouroullecs have defined a distinctive visual style, which Jasper Morrison (one of the designers they most admire) described as “thoughtful and disciplined, with a real spirit and poetry”.
