Chasen is a suspension lamp providing diffused light. It is made from a chemically photo-etched stainless steel body and borosilicate diffuser with liquid paint protection. It features a die-cast aluminum base and a 30% fiberglass-reinforced polyamide ceiling rose attached to a pressed and galvanized steel ceiling fixture. The light emission of Chasen can be adjusted by means of a mechanical movement that opens the louvers, thereby varying the shape of the luminaire.

Patricia Urquiola

Born in Oviedo, Patricia Urquiola attended the Faculty of Architecture of the Technical University of Madrid, where she graduated in 1989 having completed a thesis with Achille Castiglioni. From 1990 to 1992, she was assistant lecturer on his courses. Between 1990 and 1996, she worked with Vico Magistretti for the new product development office of De Padova and signed the products: “Flower,” “Loom sofa,” “Chaise,” and “Chaise Longue.”
The furniture manufacturers and entrepreneurs Dino Gavina and Cesare Cassina founded Flos which became one of the leading Italian light manufacturers in the second half of the 20th century. Its origins lay in the energy of Arturo Eisenkeil who, in 1959, was seeking to find applications for a new, plastic-based material that he was importing to Italy from the United States. Called ‘cocoon’, it was a spray-on plastic coating that Gavina and Cassina recognized as having potential for lighting design. From the outset, Flos established its reputation through its innovative lighting designs from Achille Castiglioni. The collaboration with Achille Castiglioni continued through the '90s, and in 1992 he introduced the "family of products" concept to the market with the Brera series. At the same time, Flos continued to scout for emerging talent at an international level. The first Philippe Starck lamp, Ârà, was produced in 1998, followed by the Miss Sissi lamp, Romeo Moon, and Archimoon series.
