FLOS

Modern Italian lighting for contemporary homes

Dedicated to quality, innovation and exquisite craftsmanship, Flos’s collection of stunning lighting constantly reinvents the traditional to pioneer new styles, concepts and designs perfectly made for modern homes. This is Flos.

Continually transforming light...

From its founding in the 1960s by Dino Gavina and Cesare Cassina, Flos has continually reinvented and revolutionised the concept of lighting. 

When Sergio Gandini began managing Flos in 1963, he established a creative vision and image that would lead to the creation of history’s most iconic lamps. This winning combination of factors, created in collaboration with the company’s exclusive designers like the Castiglioni brothers and the Scarpa duo, brought about a success and template that transformed contemporary lighting design. Under his son Piero’s management in 2000, Flos took another step toward the future, this time focusing on a unique balance of artisan craftsmanship, iconic designs and endless artistic expressionism. As LED lights became more popular at the beginning of the 21st century, Flos developed new and unique luminaires which combined technology and art to courageously blaze a trail with designs that have defined the face of modern lighting. 

Product Style

With a groundbreaking, radical attitude, Flos consistently produces contemporary and innovative lighting for private and public settings. Flos and its collaborative designers have transformed modern lighting by experimenting with innovative materials, such as a special cocoon fabric developed by the US Army as a protective packing material, winning countless awards for their groundbreaking lamps, pendants and luminaires along the way. Working with history’s most acclaimed designers, including Philippe Starck, Gino Sarfatti and Marcel Wanders, as well as modern up-and-comers, the brand has developed an eclectic portfolio of iconic, innovative designs that combine stunning quality, architectural aesthetics and unmatched craftsmanship. 

Iconic Designs

Noctambule Collection 

by Konstantin Grcic

Designed by German industrial designer Konstantin Grcic in collaboration with Flos, the Noctambule Collection is truly one of a kind. Taking its name from the French word for “night owl”, its unique design takes centerstage when lit, while appearing almost invisible in daylight. Featuring hand-blown glass cylinders that intersect with one another via LED rings, the modular design of the Noctambule collection allows the user to add and subtract different elements, providing endless creative possibilities for both floor and pendant lighting.  

Coordinates Collection 

by Michael Anastassiades

Originally designed for the Four Seasons restaurant in New York, the Coordinates Collection by Michael Anastassiades is a sophisticated meeting of light and sculpture. Offering both simple and complex configurations, the designs are composed of horizontal and vertical luminaires constructed from anodised, champagne-coloured aluminium with an integrated platinum optical silicone LED for a luminous glow. Simple, clean and contemporary, the Coordinates Collection offers striking yet delicate lighting for today’s interiors. 

IC Collection

by Michael Anastassiades

Contemporary and minimalist, the IC Collection, designed by Michael Anastassiades for Flos, explores the nature of balance. Inspired by contact juggling, each piece in this collection is characterised by a beautiful, spherical opal glass shade balanced on the edge of a rod, capturing a moment of perfect equilibrium. Offering a range of designs from wall and ceiling lights to table and floor designs, the IC Collection is effortlessly elegant and strikingly beautiful.
