To celebrate next`s 10th birthday we created a totally new version of this "classic".
"Seems to ignore all laws of gravity..." wallpaper, 2001
FlapFlap° 10 playfully defies the laws of gravity.
The luminaire appears to hover freely in the air. As if lifted by phantom hands the invisible reiforced cable rises up from the ground to support the lamp-shade. The first version of FlapFlap designed by Constantin Wortmann and produced by next home collection dates back to the year 2000. For the occasion of next’s tenth anniversary Wortmann has created this redesigned version. The outcome is a brilliant, sparkling FlapFlap°10. Its high-gloss polycarbonate shade is shaped from one piece is clamped directly to the lamp with two sturdy braces. This makes it possible to adjust the shade of FlapFlap°10 in different angles and to play around with the different degrees of its apparent weightlessness.
