Designed by Tobia Scarpa in 1973.
Tobia Scarpa is an Italian designer and architect. He is known for his furniture design that melds cutting-edge technology, ergonomic function, and cultural history. Born on January 1, 1935 in Venice, Italy, Scarpa studied architecture at the Università Iuav di Venezia, graduating in 1957. After graduating, he began working with his wife and collaborator Afra Scarpa, with whom he produced numerous important designs.
Scarpa has designed for many Italian and international firms, including B&B Italia, Flos, Benetton clothing, and Fabbian. The designer’s career has been long and prolific, filled with significant honors, including the Compasso d'Oro Award in 1969 and The International Forum Design Hanover Award in 1992.
His works are included in the collections of cultural institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
Scarpa currently lives and works in Venice, Italy.
Flos, the Italian brand of lighting par excellence, is on the borderline that unites and divides art and design, manufacturing and industry, individual creation and collective imagination.
With over 50 years of activity, Flos has received numerous Compasso D'Oro, one of the most important design awards in the world, the result of the work philosophy the brand has adopted since the beginning: to work with the best designers in the world (whether undiscovered talents or established masters), using revolutionary techniques and materials and always keeping abreast of cultural and market trends.
The entire history of Flos is full of transformative moments and design icons, such as the Arco and Parentesi lamps, designed by the Castiglioni brothers, or the Ktribe family of lamps by Philippe Starck. A Flos catalogue is not only an inventory of iconic lamps, but also a true directory of established designers such as Gino Sarfatti, Rodolfo Dordoni, Antonio Citterio, Marcel Wanders, Konstantin Grcic, Jasper Morrison, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec or Patricia Urquiola.
Today, experimentation opens up new paths with the use of avant-garde materials and hi-tech solutions, such as OLED technology and new eco-sustainable materials. Flos' commitment to sustainability is impressive. The company actively seeks environmentally friendly solutions throughout its design and manufacturing processes. It incorporates energy-efficient technologies and materials, ensuring that its lighting fixtures not only provide exceptional illumination but also minimize their impact on the planet.
In addition to its residential lighting solutions, Flos has also made significant contributions to the architectural lighting industry. The company has worked on prestigious projects around the globe, collaborating with architects to create custom lighting solutions that enhance the beauty and functionality of spaces.
Flos isn't just another lighting company, it's a cultural one. Merging tecnhology and emotion, it integrates light into architecture and nature, bringing a sophisticated, poetic sensibility to all its creations. Taking the long view, Flos creates sustainable and timeless lighting fixtures, each of which it refines to its truest essence.
