Design Philippe Starck, 1998 Blown crystal, steel Made in Italy by Flos
An unexpected play of light, the Cicatrices De Luxe 8 brings the eye upward to present light as an object of beauty, seen through eight individually blown and hand-cut leaded crystal vases. Each vase is secured to a fire retardant, aluminum-and-technopolymer seat, which is in turn attached to chemically tempered super clear glass platforms.
A 12V current originates in the central stem and travels to the lamps by way of a silk-screened silver circuit with a ceramic varnish coating. The suspension stem and rose, which house the electronic transformers, are matte nickel-plated steel.
