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.

One of the great masters of Italian design, he was a founding member of ADI in the fifties. The long list of awards he has received include eight Compassi d'Oro. His activity as a designer is an unmistakable blend of simplicity, irony and fun and its shows his close interest in the way objects are used, in the potential offered by technology and in the use of new materials.

Piero Castiglioni

Pietro Maria Castiglioni, known as Piero, was born in Lierna (Lecco) in 1944. After graduating in architecture in 1970, he worked with his father Livio in Via Presolana from 1973-1979, mainly specializing in lighting design. In 1968 and 1973 he was asked to work for both 14th and 15th "Triennale di Milano". In 1972 he carried out design work with Ugo La Pietra for the exhibition entitled "Italy: the new domestic landscape" at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Along with his father, he created several lighting designs for public or private art galleries, temporary exhibitions, show rooms, offices, hotels and houses both in Italy and in foreign countries. They often designed special execution lights made by craftsmen, eventually resulting in the creation of the "Scintilla" system, manufactured by FontanaArte. Piero continued working on interior and outdoor lighting design following his father's death in 1979.
