The rain had just cleared as he came to the beach. The sand was still wet and heavy, almost like clay. He dragged his heel through the soft material, leaving long grooves behind – as if someone took a scoop.

Nordic Breeze

Before I even put pen to paper, I think a few decades ahead. Would people still love my interior fifty years into the future? What materials would best suit the air and temperature? Will I be making homes for a colony on Mars? Creating something new yet timeless is my mission. I give nods to more classic shapes and silhouettes, but apply a certain tropical-Island element to the mix. Above all, my artform is about contemporary luxury. This is interior for the house of tomorrow.

Piece By Ps import a unique selection of  handmade products from Bali made of high quality materials. Products placed at the biggest retailers in the Nordics.

FLOS

For fifty years Flos have been crafting objects of light.

For flos, light is the substance for expressing new ideas and illuminating unexplored emotions. they write the future, reading their past and expressing their present, in a continuity of positive challenges and bold choices that have shaped flos´ image and identity.

flos´ history has taught them to fan the flames of provocation with research into new poetic notions of functionality.

Trusting their intuition has always allowed them to create products that become icons, establishing new typologies and innovative archetypes.

Connecting with masters of design. Discovering new talents. Commanding high technical and technological status. Staying tuned into mass culture. These qualities always place flos at the cutting edge.

Experimentation opens the way for flos to utilize revolutionary materials - as in the past with Cocoon - and hi-tech solutions, currently represented by OLEDs and eco-sustainable materials.

Flos´lamps, of yesterday and today, never fail to be serious about their sense of play and irony.

On the fine line that divides and unites art and design, craftsmanship and the industry, the limited edition and larger scale manufacturing, an individual’s idea and the collective imagination. That’s flos´ place. That’s where you’ll find them.
