Established in 1962 in Merano, FLOS is an international company offering a range of products and systems in the residential and architectural lighting sector. Famous for solutions that are both creative and innovative, the company has a broad catalogue of iconic lighting products by celebrated designers including Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Philippe Starck, Antonio Citterio, Marcel Wanders, Konstantin Grcic, Jasper Morrison, Patricia Urquiola, Ron Gilad, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec and many more.
In 1962 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.
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.
FLOS has an ongoing commitment to research and innovation in lighting technology, combined with an extraordinary ability to identify new creative talents. With the recent launch of the Soft Architecture collection, a ground-breaking project recognised by leading international awards, the company has further demonstrated how a historic brand can look to the future without loosing sight of its tradition.
