april 15, 2019 - Diomede

Acronym of Fonte Luminosa Autonoma Itinerante (Itinerant and Autonomous Light Source). It is a manifesto about the freedom to personally experience either indoor and outdoor lighting. A philosophy presented in 2019 by #diomede, it is designed by the creative duo MAIS project and engineered by ing. Cavalli.

Nothing should be chained with a cable no more. “Wireless” is our motto.
What is light in today’s digitized and weightless world, in the realm of the connectivity? light can become part of our living: an essential element to create comfort zones. #flai is an icon from the future, a change of perspective, that is no more restricted in just one place and it is a fluid element of the digital web we are living in. #flai is a concept of contemporary itinerant light, it expresses domestic nomadism in 2020. The user is nomad and demanding, he does not want limits, he does not have a fixed seat but he wants to be well served. #flai is a versatile, free and portable light. #flai does not lead to the discovery of a place but to the rediscovery of a space.

The device is made of thermoplastic material with IP54 protection degree, containing a 3/6W dimmable LED module with dynamic white. It can hold 2 or 4 lithium batteries that guarantee autonomy from 7 to 11 hours. The coupling system is spherical with magnetic attraction that allows maximum adjustability. Charging takes place through two gold-plated metal contacts located in top of the device where you can also find the capacitive power button. The LED module is part of the #design: protected by transparent diffuser can be controlled via Wi-Fi by a standard application available for iOS and Android and by an intelligent voice-activated personal assistant. The application allows switching on and off, checking intensity and dynamic white.

The supports are developed based on the experience. They are the result of prototipation, use and analysis of the sharing moments. The objective was twofold: meet the needs of the daily context of use and propose new ones. Thus, ten supports were born. They are in constant evolution and they amplify FLAI’s freedom. They all share a common characteristic and a reason for being: the spherical coupling system.
