FLOS Lighting

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.

Beautiful, classic shape, good illumination.

The 150 watt bulb produces more light than similar fixtures. The frosted glass shade is warm and diffuses the light nicely. Definitely the best "globe" ceiling pendant for the money.

Simple Elegance

After searching for something simple and white to compliment cabinetry, I bought 2 glo-balls for an adjoining kitchen and dining area in a NYC pre-war apartment. They look great, were easy to hang, and offer great light. Also, they are truly white - whereas many other fixtures are not. Their simplicity is what attracted me to these fixtures. I highly recommend them!

we love this pendant!

We installed this in our dining room with absolutely no problems. The pendant is exactly what we wanted: nice and bright for Sunday newspaper reading and dims to nice dinner lighting in the evenings. It looks really cool about 3/4 of the way down, like a glowing spaceship.

Beautiful simplicity

Just installed in a modern, minimalist dining room and looks great... Plenty of compliments.

Only thing I'd say is that it is bright, and needs to be put on a dimmer...

This is a great find!

I love this fixture. It is simple yet elegant, a perfect glowing ball which hangs in our foyer. I also like the fact that it won't collect dust and dead bugs because it is enclosed.

I liked the glo ball, it was exactly like i thought it would be

We installed two over our dining room table. The central space in our brownstone is dark -- or was, as these lights on high make the space bright in a natural feeling way. Dimmed down, the effect is cozy and intimate. The lights are beautiful, but neutral. A salesperson at YLighting recommended these over the phone. Amazing.

A classic..

This is the Little Black Dress of pendant fixtures. It's the third one I've purchased -- simple, elegant, goes with any decor. I know there are knock-offs out there but it's worth going for the real deal.

Awesome light especially when dimmed

Very nice light, relatively easy installation, looks incredible at night with a dimmer. Changes the room for sure.

Glo-Balls 'R Us

I have purchased other FLOS Glo-Ball products for my contemporary home (floor lamp and table lamp) and the pendant does not disappoint. These are quality products and worth the price. They provide very sophisticated lighting at different luminance levels and a soft light that is very pleasing and functional.

great contemporary hall/stair/dining pendant!

Used the Glo-Ball to replace a builder brass and faceted glass number over a monumental stair with a terrific result! Soft flowing lines of the oversize glass bowl seems to float like a cloud, with minimual attention brought to the hanging and power cords and cables. Generous amount of power lead to accommodate tall and sloped ceilings. Great price too!

The Glo-Ball is perfectly minimal with great attention to detail.

The acid etched glass defuses the light evenly. Looks great in groups of three.

Classic Minimalist Design that mostly delivers.

I've been a great admirer of Jasper Morrison and his minimalist aesthetics. Had a professional electrician install the light over our staircase. Everything is great except there is a ghosting / Shadow line that runs down one side of the light. Don't know if this is a defect in my light or if this is part of the design. Otherwise satisfied.

This one's an ethereal modern beauty with excellent functionality.

The Glo-Ball S2 Pendant provides a touch of softness in the master bedroom of our industrial loft. At full strength on a dimmer switch, the light is great for packing luggage, cleaning, and any other work; at partial illumination, it's a softly glowing moon. Great design, superb functionality.

Great! This fixture was the perfect fit

We used three of the Glo-Ball S2 fixtures for the entrance to a NeoCon Showroom, located over the reception desk in front of our green wall. The shape. globe color and proportions were the right fit. The quality of light (halogen) gives a warm feeling complementing not only the greenery but the white and wood tones of the desk. We were in a bind, needing the fixture ASAP, Erin, the person who took my order was great, she expedited the order and everything worked out perfect. Thank you

The name of this fixture says it all.

The simple and clean form of this fixture is timeless and chic, modern and classic.
The high quality, white glass, diffuses the light perfectly and when dimmed, it glows like the moon. It is technically well designed and changing the lamp is easy.

Best Pendant!

Wonderful pendant, the cord disappears when lit at night so you're left with a mysterious floating orb.

The Glo-Ball is modern, yet plays well with more traditional fixtures in our "eclectic" apartment. YLighting shipping was fast and the fixture was packaged well. Installation was a little harder than our electrician would have liked, which is why this is a 4-star review.
