Flos is an Italian design brand, founded in 1962 by Dino Gavina, an Italian entrepreneur who wanted Italy to become the homeland of a new interior design culture. That same year, they began making lighting which became classics in Italian industrial design.
These first lamps were Arco, Relemme, Toio and Taccia, all designed by Achille and Piergiacomo Castiglioni. As tangible proof of timeless design and technical excellence, these lamps became icons in the design industry.
Flos has been characterized by its high-quality approach to lamp design and production. They have won awards and critical accolades, and have been included in all the most important collections and design museums around the world.
