The suspension lamp Skygarden 1 by Flos provides a direct light with a halogen lamp.
Its semi-circular diffuser has a liquid paint-finish on the outside and is available in mat gold, mat rust-brown, matt black, glossy white or glossy black. The inside however reveals intricate and unique relief decorations, reminiscent of stucco elements that can be found in old houses.
There was a marvelous, antique ceiling with gypsum decorations in Marcel Wander's former house. He was so enthusiastic that by the time he moved houses he could not easily part ways. He took his tools and carved out a piece from the ceiling. Those fabulous pieces of history are now secretly hidden in a minimalist semi-circle. And just this ambivalence directs our attention to the suspension lamp: outside it is characterized by a minimalist shape, devoid of any ornamental details. On the inside however, it features both dynamic, playful decoration elements and exuberant adornments.
