Compasso d'Oro: double victory for Flos in 2020

During the presentation of this most prestigious design award, Flos was recognised twice. While Michael Anastassiades was rewarded for the poetic, geometric lightness of his Arrangements pendants, the timeless, ingenious Arco floor lamp designed by the Castiglioni brothers 60 years earlier was celebrated with the first Product Lifetime Achievement Award.

Arco floor lamp, a true legend

Recognised worldwide as one of the most ingenious and timeless pieces of design, the Arco floor lamp is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. It reflects the analytical approach of the Castiglioni brothers. From its white Carrara marble base, an arc shoots out so that the light shines over your interior.

May Day table lamp

Also awarded a Compasso d’Oro in 2001, the May Day table lamp is reminiscent of work lamps, adapted for domestic use.

The May Day lamp, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, still adapts to all situations today.

What’s new

Coordinates collection, the essence of sculptural simplicity

Composed of simple geometric shapes, these lights are imbued with a strong sculptural dimension. These architectural lamps resemble aerial mobiles, graceful and elegant. A minimal aesthetic that’s no less spectacular.

Lampadina table lamp,
reissue of an icon that’s full of life

The "Lampadina" table lamp is one of the iconic lamps designed by Achille Castiglioni, grand master of 20th-century Italian design. Designed for the opening of the Flos showroom in Turin in 1972 and a symbol of the 70s, this light with its industrial design has been reissued by Flos in tribute to its designer.

Noctambule collection,

The collections

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.

IC collection,
a lighting gem

An art deco style for this refined, minimalist collection composed of a blown-glass sphere balancing on a fine metal holder. 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.

Superloon floor lamp,
astral lighting

The famous British designer Jasper Morrison took inspiration from the moon to create this floor lamp with its spectacular luminous effect. You can direct the light wherever you like and create multiple light atmospheres, the beam defining patterns of shadow and light.

Ipnos table lamp,
the lantern revisited
