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.

Timless classic: A design of Yesterday, today AND tomorrow
This elegantly curved yet mostly straigght lined floor lamp offers an anchor point in my living room. Although I did not have an opportunity to see the actual item other than on line, I had a confidence in this classic piece. Indeed, as it commands its presenc in my living space, no post purchase dsisatisfaction symdrom emerges; au contraire, this indeed is a timless classic piece. Unassuming as it may in its color, its height and slightly oversised round shape carried gravitas. An excellent piece. I also foresee that it will nicely fit into any living spaces, be it a old row house or a ultra morden condo.

A classic! (but one nit)
Simple. Clean. Elegant. Spun is an incredibly versatile lamp that can adapt to any number of environments and still command with its presence (we call it 'Darth Vader'). Two points of note. (1) The halogen bulb for this lamp is incredibly bright--and here is my one complaint about the lamp--at even the slightest dimming, the lamp buzzes. The more you dim, the louder the buzz. I've changed the dimmer switch and no change. I've found no solution other than to put in a 60W vanity bulb that best matches my most desired brightness and let it go at that. (2) Whenever I've seen this lamp in stores, I've noticed that the base is all scratched. Either folks are stepping on it or it's being dusted with poor care and treatment. My suggestion is to take a soft cotton tshirt and lightly run it down the stem and carry that straight line down over the base--all one direction, no back and forth whisking over the base. This has kept our lamp scratch free. Also...don't leave this lamp alone with toddlers--it's like a magnet. Toddlers seem to think it's a fun climbing structure.

A new modern classic
Sleek and beautiful, works just as nicely in more traditional spaces as well as with minimal interiors. The design is here to stay and will be a great addition to any interior, and is well priced to boot!

Worth the wait
I waited several months before buying this lamp as my partner assured me I could/should find something less expensive. Nothing else I found lived up to this lamp, though, so I finally bought it when it went on sale. The lamp was totally worth the wait! It's elegant lines completely make the whole living room ensemble complete. The black version has such a striking presence in the room, that I can't imagine the room without it now. Definitely worth the investment.
