Since its creation in 1962 by Dino Govina and Cesane Cassina, Flos has positioned itself as one of the leading brands in the market for lighting equipment and materials. The Italian brand is mainly known for its architectural and decorative creations. For more than 55 years, the company's success has resided in its ability to offer trendy and innovative ranges of lighting fixtures that meet the needs of consumers, both private individuals and professionals. But to achieve this result, the company has had to collaborate with world-renowned designers and enthusiasts such as the Castiglioni brothers and Tabia Scarpa.
In order to be able to propose offers that always succeed in seducing so many consumers, Flos has been able to rely on the know-how and experience of renowned professionals and craftsmen who do their utmost to make the products stand out from those of the competition. Thus, the collaboration with some designers in particular (including the sons of the renowned architect Carlo Scarpa) has enabled the Italian brand to create pieces such as the iconic ARCO floor lamp by the Castiglioni family or the famous spectacular Superarchimoon Flos by Philippe STARCK.
Today, the lighting systems offered by the brand are diversifying in order to better adapt to the realities of the market. For example, the desire of professionals to offer modern, designer equipment can be seen in the wall and ceiling lights of the Glo-Ball collection. The lamps were designed by the great Jasper Morrison, a designer renowned for his original and functional creations. The interior luminaires are distinguished by their appearance, but above all by the diffused light from their mouth-blown opaline glass.
Another illustration is the Kelvin range of floor lamps, with which enthusiasts wanted to demonstrate their ability to adopt the new technologies available in their field. The supports consist of an arm that can be rotated through 360° and a flat square head that can be swivelled through 355°. As far as diffused light is concerned, the designers opted for one of the LED bulbs with adjustable lighting intensity.
To maintain its leading position in its sector, a brand must be able to influence trends and create needs. Flos has always been able to adopt this principle by creating bold lighting systems that subsequently become true icons. To do this, the Italian brand does not hesitate to exploit new ideas, new horizons. This art of experimentation has allowed the brand to manipulate materials to make revolutionary structures, but also to combine technological innovations to propose more adequate solutions.
Surprising equipment such as the recessed ceiling lights in the Skygarden collection are the result of respect for all these beautiful values. The pieces are made up of a die-cast aluminium alloy support topped by a magnificent opaline glass diffuser. And what about the Ktribe S3 suspension units? A perfect combination of modernity and design for a lighting system that is definitely contemporary.
