Creating a true “only in New York” moment during the upcoming ICFF happenings, Flos has teamed up with one of the city’s top tattoo artists to celebrate Dutch designer Marcel Wanders‘ new lamp for the renowned Italian lighting specialist. The event marking its launch will leave a few lucky guests with a permanent entry stamp, as tattoo artist extraordinaire Scott Trerrotola applies one of three custom-created tattoos, each modeled after previous designs Wanders’ made for Flos.
The three designs on offer during “Get Lit, Get Ink’d” are interpretations of Wanders’ Skygarden, Can Can and Chrysalis lamps—the latter two just introduced at the recent Salon del Mobile in Milan. The tattoos will be done by appointment only, at the Flos showroom in SoHo on 15 May 2011. To make an appointment, call +1 212 353 1383.
