Minimal and sculptural, Lodes’ Flar floor and table lamps by French designer Patrick Norguet were inspired by traditional storm lanterns that use glass pipes to protect their flames.
Referencing the French word flamboiement, the Flar collection seemingly captures an intense blaze within its shapely and charmingly imperfect mouth blown-glass shade: a candle-like LED filament bulb emits a light that seems to dance and flicker like a flame.
Countering the fluidity of the glass is a 3D-laser-cut steel base, which appears to open like a flower to gracefully hold the shade. A dimmer control on the cable-mounted power switch allows for the illumination intensity to be modulated to create multiple ambient schemes.
Flar’s glass shades — each of which features unique bubbling that illustrates the hand-crafted technique — are available in two tints, honey or turquoise, while the base can be champagne or terra (a warm pink-orangey brown); the shade and base can be combined as desired. The lamps are available in two sizes.
