Artificial light is perhaps one of the most precious phenomena in our civilization. The primordial instinct to protect its source like the most delicate flower is the design principle behind Phylum. Light as ethereal pollen, gently shaded by two ribbed steel petals.
Its compact size allows the light to become ubiquitous, while the geometry of the petals allows the user to direct the light in different directions. The leaves ribbing not only increase the rigidity of the thin metal sheet but enhance the light’s caustic projections.
Phylum was presented to the press at the Alessi concession in Harrods (London), February 2012.
