Flap appears at first like a piece of contemporary art with its irregular geometric lines, decorating the walls in an interplay of light and shade.
The light source is formed by Flap's two overlaid metal surfaces which, thanks to a slight bend and the irregular overlay, provide a strong personality to a lamp of striking simplicity. When lit, the piece creates a new visual perception as there appear to be four surfaces. This is due to the effect the backlit shadows create on the different surfaces of the lamp and projected onto the wall.
Flap is an ideal element for wall compositions, and when used in multiples it can create a unique and unusual light sculpture suitable for both residential and contract environments. It is available in three sizes, each one characterised by the special proportions that make every variation of Flap unique.

In a book commissioned by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and edited by Candy Pratts Price, with writing by Jessica Glasscock and Art Tavee, their achievements are revealed: a century of objects of necessity and desire poured forth to boutiques and department stores across the United States and the world. The forward-thinking American accessory designer, in collusion with America's royalty–the Hollywood star–and in sync with the unstoppable dominance of a rebellious popular culture, has assembled a cabinet of curiosities, including everything from Adrian's witty Hollywood hats to Ralph Lauren's all-American accoutrement to Madonna's rubber bracelets. It is a tradition that continues today with a stellar group of CFDA designers whose work exemplifies the American accessory. American Fashion Accessories
