Flos is the pioneer in Italian designer lighting and one of the most important designer labels in the world. The range of lighting options goes from decorative lighting to architectural master strokes. Every one of the designs are innovative without losing sight of practicality and quality. A legendary classic is the Flos Arcoan arc lamp with a base made of Carrara marble. Other well-known designs are the Glo Ball and the Miss K. Flos was established in by Dino Gavina and Cesare Cassina.
This is embedded in their clear vision: Italy would become the cradle of interior design. The collaboration with esteemed designers such as Castiglioni brothers and Tobia Scarpa made Flos a producer of successful designs right from the beginning. An example is the Flos Arcothe lamp that replaced the classic chandelier above the dining table.
In the meantime, Flos has become a renowned designer label that works with well-known designers and new talent. We felicitated Flos with several design awards and their designs are exhibited in museums throughout the world. The brand produces innovative lighting without forgetting the past.
The designers often go for the ultimate combination of cutting-edge design and nostalgic elements, such as the traditional bedside lamp from the old days. The result is a timeless and perfect design that withstands the vagaries of fashion. For example, the successful design of the Flos Miss K was inspired by the shapes of a conventional table lamp.
The inside of the modern Flos Skygarden is lined with beautiful classic ornaments. Right from the beginning, thorough research was carried out to investigate new materials and technologies. This combined with the rise of the designer label led to the discovery of the Cocoon technique. This technique consists of wrapping a metal frame with a kind of resin. The Flos Gatto and Flos Fantasma are wonderful examples of this fascinating process.
In designing their lighting, environmentally responsible products are key. Forgot password? Any infringement shall be prosecuted under applicable laws. The e-mail address could not be found.

She was not unable to outstrip, either by oars. If she should fly or if she plied by sail. And saith not she that the stormy Adriatic. All its coast denies this, or the islands Cyclades. Rhodes the delightful, shuddering Thracian. Propontis, or the wild Pontic Bay. A leafy'ed wood. For on Cyrtorian height.
Often a rustling she made with speaking leaves. I know thee, Pontic Amastris! I know thee, Cyrtorian boxwood! To thee, these have been and are the best known. Spake the yacht. On thy peak she says she once stood. And in thy waters she has dipped her oars. And thence through so many raging channels. Thy master thou bore, whether on port or starboard. Has at once filled both legs of the sail. Nor have any dedications to shoreline gods.
Been by sailors made, when came from the most distant. Sea right up to this shining lake. But these things were so before. She ages restfully and herself she devotes to thee. Dear twin Castor and dear twin of Castor.
