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.See other lights/products from Achille Castiglioni
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.

Easy to assemble and install -- I hope the cords will eventually hang straight --

i really liked it
good product, great service. Although it should have come with extra bulbs, they send twelve exactly. And it is a lot of work to hang, but worth it. Also wish decals were easier to remove

This chandelier is beautiful, classic and clean looking.
I wanted a chandelier that was contemporary, clean and cool for over the island in our new kitchen. The Flos Fucsia is just beautiful. It has a very linear and symmetrical look, great light and really makes a statement when you walk in the room. It has a lot of impact and is also beautifully crafted. I highly recommend it if it's your taste.

Beautiful, well crafted, light fixture perfect for a kitchen island.
By:Ony , Architect (Boston)
Awesome! This has always been one of my favorite chandeliers and I am thrilled to have specified it for the commercial job that I am working on.
The fixture looks amazing with 12 pendants. I have ordered these as individual pendants in the past and always wanted to use the Fuscia 12 Chandelier. My electrician did not complain which is definitely a positive sign! The chandelier is hung over a marble conference room table.
