IC Brass Floor Lamp by Michael Anastassiades for Flos, Italy
The IC Lamp F2 consists of a blown glass diffuser mounted on an ultra-thin yet stable brass frame. Positioned in a seemingly precarious manner, as if it’s ready to drop any moment, the perched frosted blown glass sphere lends captivating tension to the design. Designed to be tucked under a sofa or chair, the cord is positioned up front to be hidden. Dimmer switch at base.
