The perennially fashionable (FR: indémodable) Arco Floor Lamp is probably one of the most recognizable lighting icons of all times and more than 50 fifty years after its creation continues to appear in numerous publications, on TV and in films. 

In 1962, Achille Castiglioni and his brother Pier Giacomo designed the Arco Floor Lamp in order to solve a practical problem: to illuminate an entire room by one lamp without having to fix it to the ceiling. A street lamp inspired the design, demonstrating Achille Castiglioni’s motto that "design demands observation". 

With the base made of Italian Carrara marble the lamp weighs in at over 64 kilos however, the brothers cleverly integrated a small hole in its design, just big enough to fit a broomstick, so it can still be easily picked up and moved around. The Arco also includes a swivel that can be used to adjust the height of the reflector and allow the user to have full control over the amount of light being spread over a room surface.

Since its creation the only change made was in the electrical system in order to conform to current norms. 

This über-classic is obviously included in the MoMA's permanent design collection.

FLOS was founded by Dino Gavina and Cesare Cassina in 1962 in order to deliver contemporary lighting in accordance with their modern furniture designs. Their main guiding principles were "collaboration with the most inventive international designers and courage to be daring and provocative, yet uphold the fundamental principles of design". These guidelines are still relevant and can be traced in the entire Flos collection up until the company's latest designs. 

From the very beginning FLOS has always been characterized by its high-quality approach towards design and but also towards production.

The result is a catalogue filled with iconic lighting objects that have changed the concept of illumination itself. Testament to this are the numerous awards, critical accolades and inclusions in all the major permanent collections and design museums around the world.

FLOS Lighting's production will continue to be imbued with various design trends that embody their attention to leading-edge research combined with highly-efficient production.

In 2012, FLOS celebrated half a century of excellence in production of designer lighting.
