Flos Parentesi is one of the most unique yet ultra-functional lamps we’ve ever seen. It’s one of the best proofs that lighting systems don’t have to be so complicated and advanced for them to be aesthetically appealing and work like wonders.
The lamp, designed by Pio Manzù and Achille Castiliogne during the 1970s was inspired by a parenthesis, from which the product got its name. At first glance, it looked like lamps are attached to wires that are running from floor to ceiling. At closer inspection, however, the cables are made of steel that are attached to the ceilings through hooks. At the opposite end is the counterweight, which maintains the cable’s tension. The light, meanwhile, is attached to a circular support, which resembles a parenthesis.
The setup entails that the lamp is very movable, in whichever direction you want the light source to go. You can also easily expand the system to include more lights and tubular support. The orientation of the cable can also be conveniently changed.
Flos Parentesi is best used in galleries, restaurants, and other places that need spot lighting. You can also find it in New York’s Museum of Modern Art. It’s available in white, red, black and nickel. As a light source a 150W halogen is advised.
That's certainly possible. Do keep in mind you'll have two power cords, which means you'll need to electrical outlets.
