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.
It all started with cocoon . . .In 1959 Arturo Eisenkeil from Merano, an importer of cocoon — a spray-on plastic coating produced in the United States — was tracking down possible applications for this new material. He joined forces with Dino Gavina and Cesare Cassina and set up a company to produce lighting fixtures. This marked the beginning of the long-standing association in the area of design with the Castiglioni brothers and Tobia Scarpa. The first cocoon lamps ever created were the offspring of this collaboration: Viscontea, Taraxacum and Gatto by the Castiglioni brothers and Fantasma by Scarpa. FLOS moved from Merano to the province of Brescia in 1964: At first to Nave and then to the current premises in Bovezzo. Sergio Gandini became chairman of the company in 1965. In 1974, the company became the owner of Arteluce one of the key Italian companies in the industrial design sector. Gino Sarfatti, an industrialist and designer, is the founder of Arteluce. Several models designed by Sarfatti himself have been incorporated into the product range.
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.
FLOS' production will continue to be imbued with various design trends that embody their attention to leading-edge research combined with highly-efficient production, sales and communications. In 2002, the company celebrated forty years production of designer lamps.

i read for a living and the tab lamp gives me all the glow i need. i ust hope my kittens don't knock it over as they have the previous two.

It's a perfect balance between style and function, beautifully simple.
I was concerned I may not like it, as I had gone to several showrooms before purchasing online and had not found what I wanted. However, I couldn't have been more pleased... The Tab Floor Lamp has a modern style, perfect for where I wanted it to go. It's functional and beautifully designed, provides light to read very nicely.

This little lamp (its shorter than I imagined) is very versatile. I have one at a beach house where it provides a modern accent in a belgian-esque house, and one paired with an e15 sofa in the city. Well proportioned, seems timeless and of-the-moment both. Very happy.

Slick lamp. Wish it were a bit brighter
This is a really nicely designed lamp. It looks great but from a practical perspective, I wish it were a bit brighter.
I purchased the floor lamp and the smaller table lamp. Both are beautiful and functional. The light is bright enough for reading as the focus is narrow. It does not extend like most "pharmacy" floor lamps but the fixed height is just right next to a reading chair of a couch as it feels very slender and unobtrusive. The finish is not a high gloss but it is definitely not mat; higher sheen than satin. Ours is next to the classic Eames chair and the lines of the lamp compliment beautifully the lines of the chair.

Solid, compact reading lamp
I needed a modern reading lamp to sit alongside my lounge chair, and the Tab Floor Lamp definitely fit the bill. Overall, it's a great reading lamp with a pleasant warm lamp, and was a great deal from YLighting on sale.

a very clean/minimalist design without being unapproachable - 'pop' modern. limited use as a bedside/reading light.

I wasn't sure how the Tab Floor Lamp would look, or whether it would cast enough light when we picked it out. It completely surpassed my expectations. It is very simple and elegant, while still being designed enough to hold its own in our very contemporary house. It sheds a ton of light, and only take up a little bit of room. Its perfect as a bed side reading lamp, but when the shade is still tilted up, throws light across my son's entire room. One thing to watch: its the perfect height for our son's bed, which is a little lower than average. If he had a taller bed, it might not be quite tall enough.

Simple, bright, clean
The design and use are simple, the light is very bright,Â surprisingly,Â and the appearance are clean on and off. Due to its relatively low height, it is probably best as a reading light for a lounge chair. We're adding an inline dimmer to take advantage of its potential as an ambient light.

Amazing Product But Small!
I love my Tab Floor Lamp and I get a ton of compliments on it but I highly recommend that you look at the specifications of it to make sure it's exactly what you want. I didn't check before ordering it and it's a bit shorter than I expected it would be. Nonetheless, it's completely gorgeous and I think the height is perfect for my apartment.

Simple & understated
Great height for a reading lamp.
By:Joshua , Designer
We think this floor lamp works very well functionally and aesthetically in that it almost disappears due to its clean design and dark finish, yet, upon closer inspection, is very elegant in its design.
In addition to the above comments, we think the base could be weighted slightly more than it is to avoid feeling as if it may tip over, and simply to feel slightly more substantial. Otherwise - perfect.
By:Kate W. , Designer (Michigan)
Nice and clean design with a good impact in our office. The problem is that it's too short.
Subtly stylish reading lamp.
Purchased two Flos tab floor lamps for my second home - very happily followed with the purchase of a third for my primary residence. Well priced for quality / style factors relative to comparable manufacturers. Only complaint - long delivery time.

Compact halogen reading light.
The halogen light creates a very warm directed light that is good for reading chairside. Does not take up too much floor or visual space. A dimmer would be a nice feature.
