FLOS

FLOS was founded in 1962 are the Italian Lighting Specialists. The very same year FLOS 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 FLOS Lighting's 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 FLOS 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 FLOS Lighting's 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.

Tobia Scarpa

Tobia Scarpa was born in Venice, Italy in 1935. He graduated from the Instituto Universitario di Architettura in Venice in the late 1950's, where he met his wife, Afra Blanchin. Together, they launched their career working for Venini glassworks. In 1960 they went on to open their own design office in Montebelluna. Continuing to collaborate with his wife for companies like FLOS and Knoll, the duo have developed a vocabulary for accessible luxury design based on expanding technology and a wide variety of materials.

Along with Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Scarpa was commissioned to design the first models for the lighting company FLOS. His Papillion Lamp for Flos (1973) was one of the first designs to use the new halogen technology.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful light The Ariette Wall/Ceiling luminaire is a design classic that I was first introduced to when an exchange student in Germany; I fell in love with the even and warm light it emitted back then, and was prompted to purchase it as a result. It is an aesthetically strong addition to a room, embodying an understated sculptural elegance. I like it best on the ceiling. I recommend an alternate packing scheme be used by the manufacture, as some of the parts arrived loose in the box (but stout plastic pieces are quite robust). Assembly is pretty fast, but you should have several people on hand to stabilize the system as you bend the rods in place.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I have purchased many Flos products before, notably the Archimoon soft table lamps. So I felt confident that I was purchasing a quality product for my client without seeing it in person. I ordered it directly from the YLighting website so I only saw photos - very misleading ones. The product arrived and I showed it to my client who hated it and, I had to admit, so did I. I was embarrassed to say that I had not seen it and did not know it looked so cheap. So I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful glow! I have purchased Ariette 2 (39" square) and installed it as a ceiling light. It looks very beautiful when lit as it has a very even and warm glow. When it is not lit, it might not appeal to everyone as it has somewhat "improvised" feel to it, but that may be more pronounced so when it is installed as a ceiling fixture as opposed to being a wall mount. I personally like it for its kite-like feeling!!! It is very big and will surely make a presence in any room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth $445.00 I regret to have returned this fixture which I have been looking at for years. The main reason that I returned it is because all of the images of the fixture on-line were darker than what it is in person. The shade is bright white and the photos show it much more grey. I did not take it out of the box to assemble it but just from looking at the components, it appears to be pretty cheaply constructed. It looks very cool but not $445.00 cool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blends into the room I have installed this wall piece onto the ceiling which I already did in my abroad home. Never got disappointed with the simplicity of this design. Good for low ceilings. Gives bright light.
