  • Description

    This opal white hand blown glass suspension lamp forms part of Jasper Morrison's Glo-Ball family from Flos.

    Glo Balls always look gorgeous when lit, providing a clean, soft white light; they also look particularly good when clustered together.

    This suspension Glo Ball comes in three sizes : S1, S2 and a Mini version with a generous cable length for high ceilings.

    The Glo Ball family includes a range of floor lamps, wall lights and table lights.

    Jasper Morrison

    Jasper Morrison, born 1959 in London, studied at the Royal College of Art in London. He pursued further studies at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin on a fellowship. In 1986 he founded his own design studio in London.

    Two early projects that gained attention were room installations, Reuters News Center for Documenta 8 in Kassel, and Some New Items for the Home at the DAAD Gallery in Berlin. The stringent concepts of these projects, which featured starkly reductive objects, represented a reaction to the formal excesses of postmodernism.

    Jasper Morrison became a leading figure of New Simplicity, a movement that advocated a more modest and also more serious approach to design. In addition to furniture, he has also created lamps, home accessories, textiles, a tram system for the city of Hanover, Germany, and a bus shelter for the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein.

    His joint 2006 exhibition with the Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa, entitled Super Normal, put forth provocative theses that once again stimulated great discussion.
