FLOS

FLOS was founded in 1962. The very same year they began producing a number of lamps that were to become classics in Italian industrial design. These first lamps were Arco, Relemme, Toio and Taccia all designed by Achille and Piergiacomo Castiglioni. As a tangible proof of their timeless design and technical excellence, these lamps continue to be produced today.

From the very outset, FLOS has been characterized by its high-quality approach to lamp design and production. Many of the numerous lamps designed for the company, first by Achille and Piergiacomo, are undoubtedly some of the best-known and most successful products of industrial design. They have won awards and historical critical accolades, and are included in all the most important collections and design museums around the world.

Achille Castiglioni

Born in Milan (1918-2002), Achille Castiglioni started work as an architect and designer with his brothers Livio and Pier Giacomo in 1938. One of the great masters of Italian design, Achille Castiglioni was a founding member of ADI in the fifties. The long list of awards he has received include eight Compassi d'Oro. Achille Castiglioni's activity as a designer is an unmistakable blend of simplicity, irony and fun and it shows his close interest in the way objects are used, in the potential offered by technology and in the use of new materials.

Pier Giacomo Castiglioni

The Italian designer and architect Pier Giacomo Castiglioni is the second of the three Castiglioni brothers. Like his brothers, Pier Giacomo Castiglioni studied architecture at Milan Polytechnic, taking his degree in 1937. In 1938 Pier Giacomo Castiglioni and his elder brother, Livio, founded a practice in Milan, which the youngest brother, Achille, joined in 1944. All three Castiglioni brothers were interested in both technology and art. Livio left the joint practice in 1952 to go his own way. Pier Giacomo Castiglioni is regarded as the intellectual equal of his brother Achille. Until his untimely death in 1968, Pier Giacomo collaborated with Achille on numerous designer objects.

In 1955 the Castiglionis designed "Luminator" for Arredoluce; their "Taraxacum" hanging lamp dates from 1960 and the hanging lamp "Splügen Bräu" for Flos was launched in 1961. Another Castiglioni design for Flos was the 1962 die lamp "Arco", which links the qualities of floor and hanging lamps. The Castiglioni brothers not only exerted a strong influence on the younger generation of Italian designers. Pier Giacomo Castiglioni taught design at Milan Polytechnic from 1946 until his death.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from compliments barcelona ensemble well purchased to compliment ensemble of barcelona sofa/chairs/ottomans/table. probably the best fixture i could find for this location. one complaint is that it is difficult to recess the power cord in the support arm for the lamp as proposed by flos. ylighting had flawless customer service and competitive price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have wanted this lamp since I was in the 5th grade. I got 40 years of Architectural Digest when I was in the fifth grade, and I fell in love with this lamp. I asked my aunt for it at xmas. I didn't get it... A lame copy would not suffice. I have it now, and it is everything I wanted and more. The perforations in the top of the shade allow light from the silver topped bulb to dapple the ceiling, while the white interior of the shade reflects ample light to the surface below it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern Classic I bought my Arco lamp in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1980. Although I have lived in SA since 1982, my Arco is alive and well and residing at my brother's house in Edinburgh, where it has pride of place. It has survived at least 4 house movings and is remarkably robust, even though it looks so slender. It is a timeless classic, alongside the Walter Gropius chair and chaise longue from the Bauhaus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love our new lamp. I find YLighting very easy to deal with- their site is great, and you get a good feel for what you are about to purchase. I think they have a great selection of items, with a wide variety of styles. We love our Arco lamp and will definitely buy from them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is everything I wanted. I discovered this lamp when my grandmother gave me over 30 years of Architectural Digest in the early 1980's. I have wanted it ever since. YLighting has such wonderful service. There is no doubt that I will be making more purchases from them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent and timeless I've had this lamp for 30 years and have seen it in numerous films and TV shows. Starting with James Bond, Goldfinger. It was recently in Dr. Who and most recently in Iron Man. There was also a desk lamp version on CSI NY this week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny . . . I have owned my Arco lamp for 5 years and am so happy that I spent money that I did not have back then for a piece that I simply love and of which I have never tired. The best never comes cheaply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous lamp! The Arco is gorgeous, but watch out if you have 8 foot ceilings....it's hard to put together because you have only a few inches to spare. (But, once installed, it's perfect!)

can i get extension for this? It needs to reach further for center of table. The table is fixed and cannot be moved.

Asked by: Rbell
Thanks for your interest in this design. While the arch portion of this design is a bit adjustable to accommodate for the adjustable height of the fixture, there are no additional extension pieces that can be purchased separately. The adjustable dimensions are as follows: 95"H X 74.6" - 76.6-78.6"W. We do apologize for that inconvenience. The reason the proportions are more or less set is because of the nature of the design and how the united is weighted; the arm must fall within a certain length window to properly counterbalance the base. If the arm were very much longer, the unit could be in danger of tipping. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help!
