“Ipnos was designed in the unique shape of a hollow cuboid, from which light floats effortlessly between its metal frames, something only possible with LED technology.” says Flos. “Weighing only 2 pounds, Ipnos is easily portable yet remains sturdy through wind and various weather elements.”

The LEDs are hidden within the top edges of the skeletal edging, protected by transparent PC diffusers, and can be dimmed or brightened by a switch on the power cord.

Milan-based architects Nicoletta Rossi and Guido Bianchi teamed up with Italian lighting manufacturer Flos for the first time on Ipnos. “We thought it would be interesting to use this innovative technology in the most understated manner, almost mysteriously,” said Ms. Rossi and Mr. Bianchi in a recent interview, “a discreet presence bringing light in the least intrusive way.”
