Designed for the fit-out of the Foundation Cartier offices in Paris, the Less range has become a major reference in the history of contemporary design.

The extraordinary thing about the Flamingo cannot be appreciated in photographs, nor even in detailed design plans. What distinguishes it from any other lamp is its use. Its unusual height, the quality of its light, the neutrality and apparent fragility of its variable and detachable structure, the mobility of its very delicate wings, all allow for unsuspected uses.
