Flos lamps: Visionary design conquering the world
From the beginning, the lamp manufacturer worked closely and exclusively with well-known Italian designers. The first lamps by Flos, such as Arco, Relemme, Toio, and Taccia were designed by Achille and Piergiacomo Castiglioni.
The Castiglioni brothers were the ones to refer to the company as a design project. In 1964, Flos moved its headquarters from Meran to Berscia and Sergio Gandini entered the company as an additional owner. An additional success was made in 1974 when Flos took over the traditional and world-renowned company, Arteluce.
