Flos (meaning “flower” in Latin) blossomed from a brilliant idea: to create objects, starting with a light bulb, that would change the way of life for both the Italian market and the foreign markets. Dino Gavina and the small Eisenkeil manufacturing facility in Merano, had already been creating furniture alongside design masters such as Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Afra and Tobia Scarpa. But by the early ‘60s, Gavina became convinced the time had come to create new lamps.

Using the same technology – conceived in the USA and tested at Eisenkeil – used for the Cocoon lamp, the Castiglioni brothers and the Scarpa duo began creating lamps such as the Taraxacum or the Fantasma, with many other beautiful and surprising lamps to follow. And so, from day one, Flos was already reinventing the idea of artificial lighting.

Flos is synonymous with high quality and the ultimate expression of fine design. Recognized world-wide as a leader in the residential and architectural lighting sector, Flos creates industrial archetypes and ground-breaking products, which have gone on to become design icons with various products featured in the permanent collections of leading international art and design museums.
