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.

Nice fixture that works in both residential and commerical applications. Works well individually or in clusters, and gives great illumination!
The problems with this fixture are that it's difficult to clean the glass cone and when the bulb burns out, you'll discover that the E14 lamp is both expensive and difficult to find. Fortunately this type of lamp lasts for THOUSANDS of hours, so it's not a big problem.

Visually simplistic design with timeless appeal that blends in transparently to any environment requiring both direct and indirect lighting.
Purchased a pair of these to go over a white granite kitchen peninsula. I wanted glass pendants that are airy, slim, elegant, unobtrusive, provide ample downward lighting as well as indirect/mood lighting and these worked out well (My other choice was the smaller and shorter Sofie Refer's Bulb Pendant Lamp). If you're looking for suspension pendants with minimal design, understated appeal that shine with character then I highly recommend these.

Beautiful design, clean lines, and balanced proportions make this fixture a fitting architectual element in our cathedral ceiling bedroom.

Better than pictuted
I liked this light in the picture but loved it once installed. It is super modern and clean and provide great light for our kitchen island. I bought four and lined them up equidistant over the island and they make a great statement to my all white kitchen. Highly recommend them!
Timeless and modern all-in-one
I bought several of these lamps about 15 years ago while visiting Europe. I needed additional lamps to complete a home project. I was thrilled to find they are still available and still fabulous.

Beautiful light,very high quality
Classic modern light that I have used in several homes as pendants over kitchen islands. Would definitely buy again as its design is unlikely to ever go out of style.
By:S.R. , Homeowner (Dallas)
Very pretty modern pendant
Needed a modern pendant for overtop my sink. This light was perfect. Not crazy modern but just the right touch. I chose the clear cord as a previous reviewer suggested. I didn't inspect the light upon receipt and my electrician informed me the glass shade had a defect in the frosted edge. Thought I was going to be S.O.L. Contacted Ylighting and they assured me a replacement would be on its way. Very happy with their service and products.

Subtle yet striking
Very attratctive. Wanted a piece which was simple yet had an element of design. Definitely fits that.
Nice clean lines used over an island in the kitchen where I wanted something minimal yet with a classic look. Very attractive

By:Anonymous , Designer (Dallas, TX)
GREAT looking fixture, a few caveats....
Your company has been a pleasure to work with and their prices are very competitive if not better then other vendors. Their customer service was helpful when needed, I would highly suggest calling though vs sending an email.
