Mayday Portable Lamp - Indoor

Mayday is a portable lamp conceived in 1999 by German designer Konstantin Grcic for Flos. Cone-shaped diffuser and polypropylene hook/handle.

 Versatility, functionality, practicality. The Mayday lamp by Grcic embodies these characteristics: initially conceived as a tool by German designer Konstantin Grcic, this astonishing creation was designed to be extremely functional. Provided with a cone-shaped reflector attached to a polypropylene hook/handle and a wind-up cord, Flos Mayday can both look like a flashlight and a lamp with endless functionalities. Mayday does not have a fixed location and is easy to move, creating ever-changing lighting effects: it can be hung from the ceiling, placed on a desk, attached to the wall and to the headboard of a bed, or placed on the floor. Konstantin Grcic's choice of the name refers to different ideas: to the famous Mayday music festival on the first of May; to the call for help "Mayday! Mayday!", which apparently comes from the French “m'aider” meaning "help me"; or to the literal English translation. Like a sunny day that brings joy and positivity, according to the designer, the Mayday lamp by Flos exudes something positive and light. This multifunctional and essential light sculpture, won the Compasso d'Oro in 2001.


"Mayday was really a self-initiated brief. It was a lamp I wanted to have for myself—a lamp that I felt should be something like a tool. A tool is an object that fulfills a function—a very concrete function—and normally its form explains the function." - Konstantin Grcic
