The first time we hear of Captain Flint, we’re in an Inn at Black Hill Cove in the south west of England around the middle of the 18th century. Jim Hawkins, the young son of the innkeepers, helps a dying man who confesses to being a shipmate of the notorious pirate known as Captain Flint. But weren’t we talking about lamps?
The new designs from Anastasissiades and Flos are an homage to the pages of Robert Louis Stevenson, no less. And Captain Flint is the ruthless pirate who hides his booty from a life of raiding and marauding on an unexplored and isolated island: Treasure Island.
With Captain Flint, an illuminating cone that seems to lay on a minimal pole through a tiny contact spot.
Michael Anastassiades's taste for geometric shapes is well-known. His IC and String Lights collections - already icons of the lighting sector despite being created only a couple of years ago - used to play with the sphere and cone shapes, defying the laws of physics with subtle and perfect balances.
The sphere is another favourite shape of the Cypriot designer who loves to play with apparently precarious balances, with instants stolen from the perpetual movement of time and space, with optical illusions.
Extra T is composed of a translucid white sphere and a rectangular aluminium foil, available in three precious colours: anodized bronze, graphite and silver.
