How its done: Aim LED Suspension by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Flos

2013 November 1

Designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Flos’ new Aim LED Suspension sort of defies what we commonly think of in a hanging ceiling lamp. Instead of being tucked away, the cables for each light become the main decorative element, able to be gathered, looped, swagged in any number of sculptural forms. The cables work to control the height and position of each LED light, since the fixture hangs naturally, much like a plant. The idea behind the lamp was to offer an infinite variety of adjustments to meet any number of adjustments with a single fixture.

The image above I stumbled upon on Pinterest, and I think it might be my favorite look for Aim that I’ve seen so far. It’s perfect task lighting for an island/food prep area without being too…tasky (not a word). I love that they bring a statement to this clean space without being distracting. The cabinets are actually what’s being promoted in this picture (from Swedish cabinet manufacturer Ballingslöv) but my eye went right for the lights.
