New

Almendra collection, luminous nature

Almendra collection - FosAlmendra collection - FosAlmendra collection - Fos

A technological feat with a poetic aesthetic, this new collection of modular pendants with organic shapes is the work of talented designer Patricia Urquiola. Almendra is inspired by the lightness of an almond tree in its shape and colour range. 100% repairable and recyclable, the aluminium structure and modules in pine oil polycarbonate are full of finesse for innovative optical guidance.

Nature teaches us a lot, it’s perfectly circular, it’s capable of self-maintenance. This is our research horizon, and we, who want to talk about wonder, ecology, living together and open-mindedness, must try to study and draw inspiration from it”, Patricia Urquiola

265 Chromatica wall light

Reissued in its original colours, the 265 Chromatica wall light by Paolo Rizzatto “helps improve the human experience of an architectural space”. Its perfectly functionalist look and strictly formal humility give the impression of aesthetic neutrality. Having become a design classic, this industrial design wall light continues to stand the test of time!

MayDay outdoor portable lamp

Designed in 2000 by the unmistakable Konstantin Gric 2000, the Mayday portable lamp, raised to the rank of design icon, now comes in an outdoor version. Made of recycled polypropylene from industrial waste, it has an industrial, playful, relaxed look, whose hook authenticates its functional, decorative place.

Oblique collection

If light were a tangible material, it would take the form of the Oblique collection. This ultra-powerful direct lighting was made possible by the development of a patented asymmetrical optical technology specifically designed to generate this light beam. Unequalled visual comfort that remains even and non-dazzling in its table lamp version or with the new floor lamp version.

Luminator floor lamps

Flos continues its line of reissues by maestro Castiglioni with the Luminator floor lamp created in 1954, which would be his first Compasso d'Oro. This piece, as modernist as it is ultra-contemporary, highlights the designer's obsession with simplicity in support of functional legibility, whose intense simplicity allows great functional legibility.

The icons

Achille Castiglioni,
A head full of thoughts

He was one of the most important designers of the 20th century, whose timeless creations still light up our interiors and the most prestigious collections of international museums with passion. During his debut in Milan, Achille Castiglioni, in partnership with his brothers Livio and Pier, collaborated on architectural projects by the eminent Ettore Sottsass. Their practice is gradually being transformed by the proliferation of projects with new design houses such as Flos, who are turning the world of design upside down. While the Italian design house is largely marked by its collaboration with the Castiglioni brothers as evidenced by these collections dotted with icons, we can tell you how these editions and reissues have left their mark on our history. An exceptional combination of inventions and production methods to install at home to best show off your collector's interior.

The collections

Favourites

IC and Captain Flint collection,
luminous jewels

An art deco feel for these refined, minimalist collections composed of a blown glass sphere or metal cone which balance cleverly on a thin metal frame. A true indoor gem, Michael Anastassiades is inspired by the art of juggling, to capture that moment when, as if by magic, the balls seem perfectly still.

AIM pendant,
plant graphics

Graphic and joyous, the AIM pendant creates a tangle of threads in space that seem to spread and grow like lianas. By reducing this light to the very essence of what a pendant is - a cable and a light diffuser - the Bouroullecs bring life, poetically, to an unusual lamp with strong graphic impact.

Miss K lamp,
Haute couture line

Very trendy and more elegant still, the Miss K lamp is now available in black. This bestseller by Philippe Starck for Flos is a reinterpretation of the classic lamp. The famous designer demonstrates once again the immensity of his talent: Miss K is a real gem. The materials are worked with art for a completely astonishing play of light.

The Bellhop go-anywhere lamp

In Vitro

This contemporary, refined version of the traditional lantern designed by Philippe Starck gives glass a poetic functionality. It becomes a capsule onto which the light is projected, the source of which cannot be seen, and brings great lightness to the In Vitro portable lamp.
This little go-anywhere lamp melts perfectly into the space to add new points of light and spread its conviviality through your exterior and interior.

Last Order

Designed by contemporary design goldsmith Michael Anastassiades, the Last Order portable lamp was created to bathe the tables of the Four Seasons in New York with light. A great partner to have in subdued surroundings, it combines purity and ultimate chic with these precious finishes. You can move it around as you wish, to become in turn a night light, guide or even a jewel. A must-have for your top tables!

the essence of sculptural simplicity

Outdoor

IC floor lamp,
outdoor version

A must-have for your interior, here it is in an outdoor version! Turn your outdoor spaces into real living rooms with this sophisticated, minimalist floor lamp with its Art Deco inspiration. A breath of elegance blows across your terraces and balconies!

Flauta wall light

Ideal for creating a path of light along a wall or facade, the Flauta wall lamp lighting upside down is specially designed for outdoor use. It owes its creation to designer Patricia Urquiola, who was inspired by organs and flutes to design this pure form with its rigorous, elegant look. Why not dress your walls with real jewels?

Ipnos table lamp,
the lantern revisited

After eliminating all superfluous elements of the classic lantern, a simple metal structure remains, supporting invisible light sources. A void that fills the space around it. In the evening, transparent and light, it creates an intimate atmosphere without breaking the charm of the night.
