Entry DescriptionThe Flask System is a highly modular and adaptable lighting system with the unique feature of a glass luminaire that is customisable in colour, size and shape. In response to increasing demand for bespoke lighting, we developed a lighting range based on its ability to be efficiently customised.
To tame the costly bespoke process, we developed a lighting system that allowed near limitless creative possibilities for our clients, whilst ensuring timely and affordable co-designed outcomes.
The Flask systems core innovation is the luminaire - or “Flask” - comprising a tempered glass outer vessel, an opal tube light diffuser, and the latest in dedicated LED technology. The luminaire is customisable, a novel feature in the lighting market. There are a magnitude of glass colours, sizes and profiles to choose from.
The Flasks are connected and powered by a small family of interconnecting components and tubular parts. This allows near limitless options of configuration and the ability to adapt lighting to the specific needs of a space.
Born through a user-centred strategy that encourages cross disciplinary collaboration, we believe the system has carved out a new product class.
