Cicatrices de luxe (Flos)

"This range of lighting fixtures for Flos is called Cicatrices de Luxe - Scars of Luxury - a kind of highly technological glass shelves, with electrically conductive prints, which invisibly transmit current to the small light bulbs hidden under different layers of crystal, inside vases that just seem to be placed there, in a nonchalant way.

Through the collection name I wanted to recall that luxury only exists because of the income gap between people, the fact that there are people who can be rich because others  are not, because others work, there are slaves, our whole system lives on slavery, and slavery leaves scars. That's why it's called Scars of Luxury."
