About this brand: Flos
Flos
Flos was founded in 1962 in Merano, to produce modern lighting. To develop new lighting concepts, they enlisted the aid of Achille Castiglioni, Pier Giacomo Castiglioni and Tobia Scarpa. One of the first materials they experimented with was cocoon, a very pliable material made in the USA. In 1964 Sergio Gandini joined the company, and the headquarters were moved to a new site near Brescia. The first Flos retail store, designed by the Castiglioni brothers opened in Milan in 1968. In 1971 Flos opened its first subsidiary in Germany. In 1974 it purchased Arteluce, a historical brand founded in 1939 by Gino Sarfatti, and opened a new factory in Bovezzo, just outside the city of Brescia. The collaboration with Achille Castiglioni continued through the '80s, and in 1992 he introduced the "family of products" concept to the market with the Brera series. At the same time, Flos continued to scout for emerging talent at an international level, collaborating with Philippe Starck in 1988.

Description

Of the Captain Flint lamp, designer Michael Anastassiades says "I wanted to design a light that had a dual purpose. An up-lighter, illuminating the space with enough ambient lighting, that with a delicate rotation becomes a dim companion for reading. A notion of balance, with a cone resting delicately on its point on a rotating rod." A choice of brass with white Carrara marble base or anthracite with black Nero Marquina marble base. LED light source (20W 2700K with dimmer)
