Inspired by the plaster moulding in his old home, Marcel Wanders created this new suspension fixture, Sky Garden, for Flos. It's a small garden escape glimpsed simply by looking up into the globe fixture. Wanders' story follows:
In my former house I had a fabulous antique decorated plaster ceiling. I called it my Sky Garden, it always looked good even without me having green fingers or taking care of it very well. It didn´t need water or sun but would live only on the warm rays of the electrical light under it. I loved it so much that by the time I moved houses I could not leave it.
I had to find a way to take it to my new home. I took my tools and stole it from the ceiling. Those fabulous pieces of history are now secretly hidden in a minimalist architectural sphere in the hearth of my new home where I can enjoy it with friends. "If you tell no-one, I can share it with you".
The inside of the lamp is finished in plaster and the exterior shell is painted gold, matte white, matte black or rust. Available in two sizes: 24" and 36" diameter.
