Today Inhabitat favorite Foster + Partners announced their bold move in the lighting realm with their eco-friendly and elegant FLO lamps. Debuting at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, the new reading lamps combine the latest dimmable LED technology with a clean and slender aluminum form balanced upon a circular steel base.

Each FLO lamp features a delicate profile that eliminates the needs for superfluous extremities such as moving parts, coiled and springs — but surprisingly, the lamp is flexible enough to be rotated 300 degrees for direct task lighting. Each lamp features a 6 watt LED bulb that emits 475 lumens of low-energy light, and the citizen LED module is interchangeable and can be upgraded.

Developed in partnership with Italian lighting manufacturer, Lumina, the lamp will be available in both a floor and desktop version. If you are in Milan, you can see the lamp first hand at the Design Supermarket located at la Rinascente near Duomo.
