Founded in the 1960s, Flos is one of the main Italian companies to have influenced not only the world of design, but also art in general, managing to reach the international public with its innovative and unprecedented works. The name itself, from the Latin "flower", well represents the idea that accompanies the company since its origins, that is to create objects that can change the traditional concept of living by metaphorically making them stem from a light bulb. The first lamps produced by Flos, in collaboration with prestigious designers such as Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni and Afra and Tobia Scarpa, fully embody the will to reinvent and create the history of lighting. Recurring to international collaborations with talented artists and architects, Sergio Gandini, who got on top of the company since 1963, created iconic pieces such as the Arco Lamp by Castiglioni, the Jucker Lamp by Tobia Scarpa, and the Miss Sissi Lamp by Philippe Starck, combining art, technology and functionality in a brand new way. Starting from the 1980s, under the leadership of Piero Gandini, Flos began its climb to worldwide success, thanks to the exhibition of some of its flagship products at the MoMA in New York, a success consolidated over time and maintained until today, always accompanied by the idea of renewing its products and its approach in view of the search for the artificial light of tomorrow.
