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.

Just Right

We are using our lights in a newly built screen porch over a daybed. They are PERFECT. We can hook them from the rod along the screen tops or hang them lower beside the bed or allow them to frame the screen door OR set them on the end tables. Just right all around!

Love it!

It's my second may day lamp and I find it great for the outside. I don,t have light on my patio so it's the perfect lamp to bring in and out and hang it from the umbrella.

fun, modern and just a good light.

these are great versatile lamps - they are mobile and functional like a shop light - but cool and modern. super light, hence easy to hook and hang on anything.

Mechanical Chic

The perfect light for the male (and it probably is male) person in need of an intelligently designed, versatile, masculine lamp.

Almost tool-like in its approach, it would be great in a large loft space, or perhaps for working on your classic BMW 2002 without getting eye strain.

Affordable, Utilitarian, Cool!

The lamp is wonderful...

- durable
- light
- manageable (cable)
- cool (resembles like construction area safe lights)
- bright (with a a 60W compact fluorescent, you'll say it's too bright!)

Truly Amazing

The light is one of the more affordable amongst Flos lights.
It means most bang for buck!
You can use this on the floor, on the table, hang it from the ceiling, etc...
I would just get one to keep as a safety light at home!

Cool, Versatile Light

Bought a couple of these for the house and have been quite happy. We've used them as table lamp, pendent lights, and right now one is hanging upside down from its shade, making it a wall sconce. I see two more in our future.

Bang for your Buck

As an interior designer exposed to new and trendy objects , materials, designs and light fixtures everyday. The always admire the totalitarian aspect and design intelligently fused together in the Mayday lamp. Extremely flexible, from table lamp to suspension lamp or wall sconce. The workmanship is better than others costing hundreds of dollars. I plan to get a second Mayday lamp.

Handy and Handsome

A very handy fixture, the cord and plug let you move it at will and hang it as you like. I have purchased two and plan on getting one more.

Versatile quality construction.

I bought a couple of these to use as side table lamps in my living room and they're just about perfect. They throw a lot of light through the shade, so they work well just sitting on a surface. The hook is a really nice touch, and I'm planning on making hangers for them so they sit more like conventional table lamps.

The construction is light weight but very sturdy. Even the insides of the sockets are well finished. The button is covered by a rubber dome and is delightfully tactile. I could see these taking many years of abuse. Plenty of cord to play with, so you could easily make these into floor lamps or hang them from the ceiling.
