Stig Myler, Designer and Managing Partner at Holscher Design, reflects on the collaboration with FLOS:
How did it all begin?
“It began – as design collaborations often do – with a case that inspired the client. The Spanish lighting company Antares turned to us with a request for a series of track spotlights. Antares became aware of Holscher Design because of our successful work for a - at the time - German leading player in the field of technical lighting.
Antares later on was acquired by FLOS - then named FLOS Architectural - with a strategic desire to conquer space in the global, professional lighting market.
This is how it began – and it has been an exciting journey and ‘happy marriage’ ever since.”
Why is FLOS and Holscher Design a good match?
“FLOS luminaires have always been one step ahead in terms of appearance and technical innovations, which has given them a unique, often iconic status. FLOS’ products are defined by their strong identity as well as a sculptural, artistic touch. To master this as a designer is a prerequisite, if you want to work with FLOS.
You have to come up with new ideas and innovative designs continuously, to make a collaboration last for 20 years. A mutual respect and drive to innovate is a key parameter and keeps the collaboration fresh and in synch with the ever-evolving architectural market.
