Flos String Lights by Michael Anastassiades. Michael Anastassiades and FLOS lighting have scored a huge success with the String Lights. These poetic, minimal pendant lights showcase the visionary quality that has always characterized the Cypriot designer's work. The shade of the String Lights is outfitted with LED bulbs. Each String Light is connected with either 40 feet or 72 feet of Kevlar reinforced electrical cable. The excessive cord length has its purpose: Anastassiades' design invites users to loop the cable horizontally and vertically, suspending it from hooks into grid shapes hung above a room. The String Light's cabling has a functional point too, allowing it to stretch out from awkwardly-placed electrical points to deliver light across a room.
The light comes with one of two different pendants - an round orb for ambient lighting; a cone for directional - and with two different lengths of cord. Consumers cut the cabling to length themselves and arrange it into grids of their own devision, or according to schemas developed by Anastassiades detailed in an accompanying booklet.

"I was interested in the way lighting cables mark space. When villages host parties they just put up four posts in the village square, connect them with a string of lights and then you have an area where everyone can tell the party is taking place. There's a little bit of that in the design. I love the way it divides the space architecturally, but it attempts to solve a practical problem at the same time: you move into a house and an electricity point is never where you want it to be for a ceiling light. So if you can't have the flexibility of putting a floor lamp in, how do you solve that problem? The String light is just about finding an interesting, poetic solution to that." - Michael Anastassiades
