Vega is the latest family in the evolution of the Flexus series by Baroncelli. Flexus is a lighting system that comprises a palette of abstracted lines, curves and circles. Echoing the language of Modernist modular thinking, it captures the desire to deconstruct the superfluous. The resulting simplicity allows countless interconnections and formations. The vast potential of the series is increased with every new element added. Vega sees the introduction of a sandblasted sphere to create an entirely fresh aesthetic. The glass sphere is wrapped in satin gold rings that hold a concealed Low Voltage LED strip. This 2700k light source is further warmed up by reflection off the golden surfaces, and then diffused and refracted across and through the surface of the entire globe. At 7W per pendant, the Vega is an energy efficient luminaire. Vega is a versatile piece that can be used individually but is impactful when installed in multiples.
