The Kartell FL/Y, with its transparent lampshade, looks a bit like a floating soap bubble cut in half. It is made of methacrylate and is available in different colours, including light green and yellow. This makes the FL/Y an exceptional pendant lamp and one of Kartell's most sought-after lighting models. It fits perfectly above the dining table or in the bedroom.
FL/Y is a creation of Ferruccio Laviani, the Italian designer who has developed a number of iconic lights in the past. As always, he has devoted a great deal of attention to the design of this pendant lamp. The lampshade is not a perfect hemisphere: it is cut a few centimetres below the widest point, so that it can capture the maximum amount of light. The special transparency of the lampshade creates a light effect that makes it look even more like a soap bubble. The colour of the light that is dispersed depends on the colour of the lampshade: with a yellow lampshade, you get a warm yellow glow.
The FL/Y is very distinctive in all its simplicity. The combination of the coloured, translucent lampshade and the visible incandescent light bulb creates a unique feeling. This pendant lamp looks best when suspended above a dining table or in the living room. Those who dare to be different can opt for clusters of lights with different coloured lampshades, to obtain an intriguing combination.
