Belt by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec Wins Compasso d’Oro ADI Award

FLOS is proud to announce the winning of the Compasso d’Oro ADI Award 2022 to Belt by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.

“I am particularly happy about this win because it marks an important milestone for our brand. This is the tenth Compasso d’Oro won in the history of our brand for a product, but it is the first one for Flos Architectural division, which realised this extraordinary project conceived by the creative genius of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec thanks to its great technical knowledge, high manufacturing and quality and artisan knowhow.”

Belt by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

Designed by the Bouroullec brothers, Belt is a technical pendant light covered in fine leather cover sewn to measure that integrates all composition elements. The innovative connection system has been developed to achieve a sinuous line without apparent interruptions. Belt creates a balance between the softness of leather and the rigidity of aluminium. The soft part is represented by the connection to the electrical network, while the rigid parts correspond to the light source, the long lines of light.

Profile length is 2000mm, available in black, natural leather, and green finishes. Each profile is equipped with integrated direct and indirect lighting and each light source can be controlled individually via remote control. The product is installed with the use of leather straps to hang the lighting profile, sliding the straps through dedicated metal clasps that act as hooks on the ceiling. Each strap may be regulated to match the shape of the environment. The electrical connection is hidden within the leather strap, which supports the composition.

The Belt ADI award is the latest in a remarkable list of Compasso d’Oro won by Flos over the years for various extraordinary designs, which include the Michael Anastassiades for Arrangements, Arco Lamp by brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 2020, the famous Parentesi by Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzù in 1979; the eclectic May Day by Konstantin Grcic in 2001; and the minimal and futuristic OK in 2016, once more by Grcic.
