In Vitro Unplugged from Flos is a fascinating cordless luminaire created by French designer Philippe Starck. The portable, rechargeable lamp is shaped like a lantern, and it is specially designed for outdoor use. At full charge, the luminaire will light up your garden or patio for up to 6 hours.
The light emitted by In Vitro Unplugged is soft and gentle, with its tiny Edge LED light sources hidden from view at the top so that the light looks glowing inside the luminaire as if by itself. “Since forever, the lightbulb is protected by a glass globe. Today, this disappears in favor of the light,” Starck himself has said about the design. “It is the both poetic and surrealistic idea of dematerialized architectural lighting and the memory of the space occupied by the light.”
