Kartell FL/Y

The Kartell FL/Y – one of the most colourful pendant lamps

Kartell proves that simplicity can be decorative. The FL/Y pendant lamp has a simple spherical lampshade. What makes this lamp so special is the wide choice of colours. The Kartell FL/Y is available in more than ten different colours ranging from light green to trendy copper.

By Ferruccio Laviani

Ferruccio Laviani is the spiritual father of the Kartell FL/Y. Born in 1960, this Italian designer had an architecture degree. The collaboration with Kartell began in 1991, when Laviani was asked to design exhibition stands and shops. His designs were clearly to people’s taste. So it was not long before Kartell asked him to work on other projects. Today, Ferruccio Laviani has some of the most iconic Kartell lamps to his name, including the Bourgie, Take and Taj.

Made from methacrylate

Kartell is a real plastic specialist. These FL/Y pendant lamp are made of methacrylate. This provides many advantages. On the one hand, this fixture is very light, yet it is still strong. In addition, methacrylate can be easily coloured. This is why the Kartell FL/Y is available in more than 10 different colours. Yellow, blue, red, fuchsia, green… there’s something for everyone.

The coloured versions are semi-transparent. Recently, some non-transparent variants were also introduced. The Kartell FL/Y in white, black, chrome, brass or copper have a “full” lampshade.

Playing with the Kartell FL/Y

In homes, one or two Kartell FL/Y pendant lamps are often used above the table and usually in the same colour. In catering establishments and offices, one dares to be a little more creative. Different colours of the Kartell FL/Y can be combined into a colourful cluster. This will give a playful touch to the space.
