Flos is excited to announce the launch of Belt designed by Ronan & Erwan Bourroulec. Balancing the softness and flexibility of natural leather with the architectural rigidity of aluminum, Belt is a new lighting system that gently curves & suspends from above. Each element of the design is controlled by leather straps. Some of them support the weight of the system, some carry electricity and some contain light.

“The leather is a key for Belt, it has some freedom, but also a certain stiffness, that makes the line harmonious.” — Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

Belt can be adjusted by sliding the leather straps through dedicated metal buckles that act as ceiling hooks, just like the fashion accessory for which it’s named. The lightsource shines up and down from Belt’s edge and its wires and electrical components are encased and hidden throughout the design.

Finishes include: black, green and natural leather.
