Flos Smithfield Ceiling LightFlos Smithfield Ceiling Light Versatile Efficiency

The Flos Smithfield Ceiling Light by Jasper Morrison was created in 2009. Its simple but sleek lines are suitable for any room in the house, whether you are looking to illuminate the bedroom, kitchen, living room or study/office.

The body of the Flos Smithfield Ceiling Light is manufactured from aluminium, with an injection-moulded, opalescent, polycarbonate (methacrylate) diffuser. It attaches to the ceiling via a steel fitting.

Measuring 21.5 x 60cm (8.46 x 23 inches), and weighing 5kg, this shallow ceiling light sits snugly against the ceiling. The light is also now available in environmentally-friendly Eco and Eco Dimmer versions. These replace the standard 230W lamp with three 24W (maximum) lamps. Morrison has accentuated the Smithfield’s silent charisma by making it available in three polished neutral finishes: black, white or mud.

For those who prefer a pendant light, the Smithfield is also available in a suspension version, with up to 2.5 metres of steel cable and an attachment, also of steel. Just like the ceiling light, there are Eco and Eco Dimmer versions and all six can be ordered from Ferrious.

Flos are synonymous with quality craftsmanship and creativity, and the Flos Smithfield Ceiling Light is another superb addition to its stunning collection.

British Concept; British Design
Jasper Morrison was born in London, and the inspiration for the Flos Smithfield Ceiling Light also came from London – the Smithfield meat markets. This is not the context one usually associates with fine interior design, but Morrison was so impressed with the functional efficiency of the industrial market lighting that he decided to pay homage by bringing the design into the 21st Century. The choice of neutral colours also reflects the understated simplicity of the lamp’s origin.
