LDF14: Elevating Flos lighting to a fine art

Words by 

Atrium will be exhibiting Swedish photographer Carl Kleiner's abstract images which incorporate Flos's latest architectural lighting products in a geometric format as part of the London Design Festival.

The images were initially taken for the Italian lighting firm's latest catalogue, and Kleiner was commissioned by art director Omar Sosa with a brief to "play with shapes and details of the products". The large-scale photographs use Kleiner's typically abstract style in bold colours and geometric forms, and capture the shapes and details of the Flos' designs.

"Having more in common with modernist art than promotional material, Kleiner's photographs capture the technical detail of Flos lighting is such an arresting narrative that displaying them large-scale in a gallery space was a natural next step," said Flos CEO Piero Gandini.

Architectural Lighting will run from 16 to 21 September in Atrium's Shoreditch space.
