Flos KTribe F2 Floor LampFlos KTribe F2 Floor Lamp Slender and Refined Lighting

Standing 162cm high, with an incredibly slender stem and refined design, Philippe Starck’s Flos KTribe F2 Floor Lamp is an elegant addition to any home.

A huge amount of modern technological wizardry has gone into the construction of this deceptively simple floor lamp. The base and rod and diffuser supports are constructed from die-cast, polished and chrome-plated Zamak.

Zamak is a zinc-based alloy with 4 per cent aluminium (its distinguishing mark), copper and magnesium; the base cover is made from galvanised P04 steel. The inner diffuser, lamp holder support and upper ring are made from injection-moulded polycarbonate.

As with many lamps, the Flos KTribe F2 Floor Lamp supplies a different ambience depending on the choice of diffuser. In this case, the choice is between fumee or transparent PMMA; gold or silver (vacuum-coated with aluminium) or pleated fabric.

The Flos KTribe F2 Floor Lamp uses a 150w dimmable bulb, controlled by a dimmer switch on the 2m cord.
