Superloon Floor Lamp

superloon floor lamp

Design Jasper Morrison, 2015
Painted or chrome-plated aluminum, PMMA
Made in Italy by Flos

The serene, harmonious glow of the moon inspired this innovative and first-of-its-kind design from artist Jasper Morrison. Using revolutionary Edge Lighting technology, the Superloon floor lamp combines maximum performance and efficiency with visual comfort. This striking floor lamp includes a Dim-to-Warm function that responds to adjustments in intensity: As it dims, light transitions from a colder blue to a warmer tone, as with a well-loved filament lamp.

The Superloon provides direct light. Its painted or chrome-plated aluminum body features a metal spinning head, die-cast joints, and an extruded stem. The diffuser is silk-screened PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate). The light source is Edge Lighting, and there is an optical switch sensor on the stem that enables the warm tone dimming function. The stem includes the Soft Touch sensor, which guarantees a fluid and precise control of light flow with a simple and natural touch of the hand. The power cord is 93.4" inches long.

It was a few years ago that Piero Gandini introduced Jasper Morrison to the innovative use of LED technology that became known as "Edge Lighting." Morrison was inspired by the way it allowed him to send light sideways and how, when incorporated into the edge of a flat composite disc of translucent white material, it gave the appearance of a flat white disc. "Superloon is the answer to the question of what to do with this intriguing technology," says Morrison. "Mounting the disc on a gyroscopic axis allows the light to be 'sent' in infinite directions. The light it gives out is broad and diffused but can be dimmed to a soft glow."

Jasper Morrison

Jasper Morrison (b. 1959) is an English product and furniture designer from London. He received a Bachelor of Design degree from Kingston Polytechnic Design School in 1982 and a Masters degree in Design from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1985. He also studied at the Berlin University of the Arts, formerly the Hochschule der Künste (HdK). While a student, he gained a keen interest in modernist pioneers, such as Buckminster Fuller, Gerald Summers, Jean Prouvé and Le Corbusier. Morrison's objects provide a quiet contrast to the creative exuberance of the Eighties. The visual restraint, high functionalism and constructive simplicity attract attention to his work.
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 was produced in 1998, followed by the Miss Sissi lamp, Romeo Moon, and Archimoon series.
