Description

Founded in 1962, Flos has made a reputation for itself as an avant-garde lighting brand willing to push the boundaries of how we see and define light: "At the origins of Flos, one first discovers a shining idea, the notion that a light bulb—or rather a new idea about how to design artificial light—could give rise to objects that were fit to bring a breadth of change."

  • Arco LED— Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2012, the original Arco floor lamp was designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. A design icon, Arco represents the beauty of simple form and surprising juxtaposition. A weighty marble base balances a curved, adjustable stainless steel arm, which blooms with Arco's spherical spun aluminum reflector. Re-envisioned for the new millennium, Arco LED offers the most advanced and high performance lighting technology.
  • Fucsia— Designed by Achille Castiglioni, Fucsia is a family of suspension lamps providing both diffused and direct light. Characterized by conical blown glass difusers, Fucsia recalls the beautiful grace of an angel’s trumpet or the industrial flare of a futuristic Klaxon. Available with 1, 3, 8, or 12 glass lights, Fuscia comes in linear and circular configurations.
  • Guns Table— Illustrative of the more cocceptual pieces designed by Philippe Starck, Guns Table Lamp puts a shiny toy rifle or pistol on its end, using the object as a lamp base. Producing both ambient and direct reading light, Guns features a plasticized paper shade. In gold and black or chrome and white, Guns will surely ignite conversation, if not controversy. Bu turning the weapon on end, Starck has made people reconsider its use and value. As a replica stripped of its fire power, Guns Table Lamp presents the stark symbolism of this evocative object.
  • Wallflower— Designed by Marcel Wanders, Wallflower is an outdoor fixture offering direct light. The flower-shaped glass lights come in transparent or acid-etched glass. With a diameter slightly over six inches, Wallflower’s blooms can be placed in hedgerows or on garden paths, a scattering of psychedelic illumination reminiscent of glowing creatures that might people a cosmos created by Tim Burton or Lewis Carroll.

In 2012, Flos celebrates its 50th anniversary, marking the occasion with a new iPad app that archives the company's history. The app includes many videos, including one of current Flos CEO Piero Gandini chatting with designer Philippe Starck in Paris. This digital history illustrates the importance of Flos as a cutting-edge brand that works with talented designers to produce inventive and iconic lighting. Known for changing "the concept of illumination itself," Flos offers a catalogue of lighting products that consistently breaks new aesthetic ground.
