Flos lighting history:

Flos was established by Dino Gavina in the late 1950s, a firm individualist who was all but obsessed with the idea that Italy should become the homeland of a new interior design culture.  Its name was a clever invention by Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. Flos is the name of a genus of butterfly and Pier Giacomo thought it was the perfect name for the new lighting company as it was intended to transform Italy's lighting landscape. After having met the inventor and small-sale lighting manufacturer Arturo Eisenkeil from Merano, and, having created many new pieces of modern furniture (with Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Ignazio Gardella, Carlo and Tobia Scarpa and other luminaries of Italian architecture), Dino Gavina resolved that it was also time to create new lamps.  One of the first lamps was the Cocoon Lamp.  The cocoon technique used be Eisenkeil - a resin sprayed onto a metal frame - seemed an ideal starting point.  Before long the cocoon method was taken up by the Castiglioni brothers.  Rather than decorating a light bulb, the aim was to give a sense of magic to the light it emanated, filtering it through an enchantingly nebulous material that was captivating precisely thanks to its cloud-like quality.  Interesting to note is that around this time George Nelson started to experience with the same cocoon technique for his Howard Miller Bubble Lamps. During the 1960s, Flos turned out a constant stream of successful lamp inventions such as Arco, Toio and the whole Flos Cocoon series of lamps.  It also took over the Arteluce catalog which included the significant 2097 Chandelier by Gino Sarfatti; another brilliant Italian designer of the 1950s.  Flos had the good fortune to work with the two Castiglioni brothers from its earliest beginnings, and continued working with only Achille after the premature death of Pier Giacomo in 1968.

Flos historically significant lighting:

Flos has become one of the most influential names in Italian lighting design.  Proof of its historical significance is the large and ambitious Taschen book 1000 Lights, with its collection of the 1,000 most important lamps from the 1960s through 2005.  The book opens with the first Flos Taraxacum Lamp by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, and continues through almost 50 years of lighting history with 55 Flos lamps referenced including the iconic Arco.
