Design Classic – The Flos Arco


Flos


Designed in 1962 by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni the Flos Arco floor lamp has gone on to be one of the most iconic lamps of our time.


The beautiful high quality polished aluminium domed shade is balanced on a white carrara marble base which weighs over 65Kilos. The lamps stainless steel height adjustable stem has a satin-finish which can be swivelled and with the switch located on the power cord it can be conveniently turned on and off using your foot.


The stunning lamp can be adapted for any living or working environment and is now available in an LED version which is fitted with the most advanced and high performance lighting technology.


"We were thinking about a lamp that shines light onto a table. They already existed, but you had to walk round them. To leave enough space around the table, the base had to be at least two meters away. Which was how the idea for Arco came into being. In Arco nothing is decorative: even the beveled corners on the base have a function, which is not to hurt us; even the hole isn’t a flight of fantasy, but to make it easier to lift the base.” Achille Castiglioni 1970

Flos’s Most loved – The SkyGarden 


The Flos SkyGarden was designed in 2007 by renowned designer Marcel Wanders.  The inspiration behind the design was from his former home which had a fabulous antique decorated plaster ceiling which he called his SkyGarden. It didn’t need any sun or water and he loved it so much that when he moved home, he stole it from the ceiling and moved it with him.


Flos


The Flos Skygarden is a beautiful hemispherical pendant with a plaster diffuser painted white inside with six outer finishes Rust, Glossy Black, Glossy White, Matte Gold, Silver or Copper.


The lamp makes a powerful impression with its sheer size and the intricate inner floral design which gives the piece its name.


Previous winner of both the Elle Decoration International Design Awards (EDIDA) and the Red Dot Award in 2008 the pendant makes an impact both placed alone or in a design with others.

Artemide: Three Most Wanted Designs

23 June 2016 Permalink

Artemide Tolomeo


Artemide Tolomeo Classic table lamp. Designed in 1987 by Michele De Lucchi and Giancarlo Fassina this award winning lamp was created to oppose the Memphis movement. The result is a stripped back form, concentrating wholly on the needs of the consumer. Artemide’s motto is “The human light” – demonstrated here perfectly by re-designing an object to further improve the quality of life.Tolomeo desk lamp continues to be a firm favourite among designers, professionals and enthusiasts alike. The adjustable, directional light enables the user to have complete control over their lighting requirements, whether that is for work or ambience. The vast Tolomeo range is expanding as the years go on, with different outputs, orientations and sizes there is one for any situation.


Artemide Tizio


Artemide Tizio Classic table lamp, designed in 1972 by Richard Sapper. This iconic architectural light went on to win the prestigious Compasso D’oro award in 1979, just as the Tolomeo would 10 years later. Sapper was one of the first to create a lamp with halogen bulbs, with low voltage being carried up the arms without a wire in sight. This produced a simplistic, minimal aesthetic with high functionality. Sapper designed the counterweighted arms to allow users full control over where the light source is directed. Artemide Tizio exists in a permanent installation in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum of Modern Art for its contributions to the design industry.


Artemide Pirce


Artemide Pirce Suspension, designed in 2008 by Giuseppe Maurizio Scutella. A multi-award winning design formed of a single piece of aluminium which gracefully spirals downward. The light source is directed upwards through the centre of the ascending form. This creates a very theatrical display of light and shadow, adding drama to a wide range of interior designs. Since its inception, Pirce has become extremely popular amongst architects and homeowners. With its wide variations of sizes available, Artemide Pirce can add huge impact to a commercial space and transform the atmosphere of a home environment.
