OBLIQUE
table lamp & floor lamp

design Vincent van Duysen, 2020

The Oblique desk lamp replaces the classic office swing arm model thanks to a real technical feat. Enclosed in a thickness of only 5mm, its LED circuit is capable of generating a very powerful and controlled asymmetric light beam, which ensures illumination of the work area greater than 1000 lux without glare or flicker (UGR <10). The light intensity is controllable by dimmer.

The base of the lamp is equipped with a USB-C socket to charge compatible electronic devices.

In the Qi version, the base of the Oblique lamp is equipped with a polymer coating which additionally enables wireless charging of smartphones.

Vincent van Duysen

When did you realise you wanted to be a designer?

I couldn’t wait to be born to express my creativity. I’ve always been someone who was creativly engaged in drawing, crafting, and everything involving image, dance and movement. From early on it was clear I was not born to become a scientist.

What is artificial light for you?

Nothing is as beautiful as day light. The moment darkness falls and artificial light is needed, it can be approached in different ways. Daylight can be simulated in a very technical way or artificial light can be accessed intimately with a domestic and warm appearance.

Why do you like working with Flos?

Because Flos is one of the greatest leaders in lighting concepts in general. It is an iconic company, working closely with exceptional designers from its beginning. Flos has a fresh and innovative perspective at both architectural and domestic lighting. On a human level, they dare to put soul and emotion in light. Sometimes like poetry, often with a touch of irony, without taking it all too seriously.
