For about ten years out of production, the Diabolo suspension that Achille Castiglioni designed in 1998, the latest project of his long collaboration with Flos, returns, wisely re-edited and updated with new technologies. Once again, a creation that is, in the spirit of the Milanese designer, a reflection on an “anonymous” product, which has always been present in homes, the ceiling light that is adjustable in height thanks to a hidden pulley system, making it work in a multitude of settings.
