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.

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.

Is there any way to install a dimmer with this lamp?

Asked by: damselfish
Yes, this fixture is compatible with an external dimmer that plugs into the wall, but it does not have a dimming switch built into the fixture itself. If you'd like to get some clarification on how an external switch would work with this unit, feel free to give us a call at 866.842.6209 and we can further assist you. Thanks for contacting us!
