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.

Achille Castiglioni

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.

Pier Giacomo Castiglioni

The Italian designer and architect Pier Giacomo Castiglioni is the second of the three Castiglioni brothers. Like his brothers, Pier Giacomo Castiglioni studied architecture at Milan Polytechnic, taking his degree in 1937. In 1938 Pier Giacomo Castiglioni and his elder brother, Livio, founded a practice in Milan, which the youngest brother, Achille, joined in 1944. All three Castiglioni brothers were interested in both technology and art. Livio left the joint practice in 1952 to go his own way. Pier Giacomo Castiglioni is regarded as the intellectual equal of his brother Achille. Until his untimely death in 1968, Pier Giacomo collaborated with Achille on numerous designer objects.

In 1955 the Castiglionis designed "Luminator" for Arredoluce; their "Taraxacum" hanging lamp dates from 1960 and the hanging lamp "Splügen Bräu" for Flos was launched in 1961. Another Castiglioni design for Flos was the 1962 die lamp "Arco", which links the qualities of floor and hanging lamps. The Castiglioni brothers not only exerted a strong influence on the younger generation of Italian designers. Pier Giacomo Castiglioni taught design at Milan Polytechnic from 1946 until his death.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lamp! I have owned a pair of them for 18 years. Yes, the light goes straight up and reflects softly off the ceiling and back down into the room - just like any 'torchiere' style floor lamp. The lower you adjust the height, the more dispersion you get. The 'industrial' design actually works in a variety of environments - Miuccia Prada used to have three pairs of these in her classically furnished Milanese palazzo (featured in the August 1997 Vanity Fair) - she may well still have them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! The Toio is a perfect solution for dark spaces. It gives off a tremendous amount of light in a beautiful wash on the ceiling. The high-tech design is minimal and unobtrusive, but the red base gives a great "pop" to the space. Since it doesn't have a dimmer, I plugged it into a socket with a wall dimmer. It's a wonderful lamp to flick on to illuminate the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning! I am sorry I never bought this lamp in the '80s when I originally fell in love with it, but the re-issue is every bit as fabulous as the vintage ones. It is a great piece of design in its own right, and throws beautiful light into the room. I have mine in a very dark corner and it has changed the dynamic of the room completely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Significant don't buy if you don't understand. this lamp is an essay on off-the-shelf industrial materials: an auto headlamp, transformer (ac to dc), fishing rod components and industrial steel profiles. too industrial? kinda the point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Iconic floor lamp In the right room, this is a wonderful lamp but be forewarned, it puts out a lotta light! When YLighting has it's next sale (assuming it applies to this product), I'm getting another.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the product. Packaging arrived in very bad shape. The box was partly destroyed. Holes and tape everywhere. Fortunately, the lamp was unharmed - so far as we know. Terrific, quality, iconic lamp. Probably too much light for most people. Requires a certain style to fit in. Not inexpensive but worth it if you're going for a certain look.

does this lamp have a dimmer?

Asked by: lizz
Thanks for your interest in this design. This fixture does not have a dimmer, just an on/off switch which is located on the cord. Please let us know if we can offer any additional clarification beyond this - we are happy to help! Parin YLighting Customer Service
