Description

Designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1962 and crafted by FLOS, the Arco floor lamp is an iconic example of 20th century design that has now garnered legendary status. Inspired by an urban streetlight, Arco is a versatile, free-standing floor lamp specially designed to bring overhead illumination to a space without the need for mounted fixtures, or the having to walk around the light source.

The genuine Carrara marble base acts as a counterbalance for the arched stainless steel stem, which is adjustable up to 215cm to suit your preferences – whether casting a warming glow over a dining table or illuminating your favourite reading chair. A polished aluminium shade covers the halogen bulb, which completes this technically innovative and visually appealing floor lamp.

  • The Design / Brand

     

    Achille Castiglioni was born in Milan in 1918. He graduated from Politecnico di Milano University with a degree in architecture in the late 1930s and, shortly after, set up a design office with his brothers Livio and Pier Giacomo in Milan.

    There, he dedicated himself to experimenting with industrial products. Achille, along with his brothers, went on to become one of the most renowned industrial designers in post-war Italy. He was one of the founding members of Association for Industrial Design (Associazione per il Disegno Industriale, ADI), established in 1956.

    His works are included in permanent collections in museums all around the world, including 14 pieces at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

    The designer has won nine “Compasso d′Oro” awards, including a special mention as an individual dedicated to industrial design who, by means of his incomparable experience, “elevated industrial design to the highest levels of culture,” in 1989.

    In his lifetime, he designed and collaborated on close to 150 objects.
