The 1960's were a period of great experimentation and creativity in Italian lighting design, and there is no company more associated with this innovative period than Flos. Working with designers such as Pier Giacomo and Achille Castiglioni at their creative peak, they developed iconic table lamps such as Taccia and Snoopy as well as the Arco Floor Lamp, one of the world's most desired (and oft-imitated) designs.
Flos is also synonymous with 'The Cocoon Technique', originally used by the US Army as a protective material for packaging, this special resin sprayed on a steel structure gave birth to several iconic pieces designed by the Castiglioni brothers and Tobia Scarpa such as the Taraxacum Pendant Light. ..
