May Day responds to a cry for help: talk about service design! A lamp inspired by the kind used in the workplace, by what are also known as emergency lights, it has a hook that allows it to be hung anywhere: under the hood of a car by a mechanic, on a trestle by a workman, on the stairs by a decorator. At home, May Day spans every typological category: it can be used as a hanging lamp, a table lamp, a wall lamp, even a floor lamp. It possesses the simplicity typical of the great masters of design, from whom Konstantin Grcic has learned the most important lesson: essentiality is not an exercise of style, but a condition of design. For this reason, even though a contemporary object, it was already, from its birth in 1999, a classic destined to last in time. And even the containment of its cost proved a farsighted choice. Extremely up to date. Manufacturer: Flos.
