Flos Arco


Like some monochromatic rainbow with a pot of silver at the end of it the Arco has become the default design by which all other floor lamps are measured. The Arco is the Madonna of floor lamps, no other introduction is necessary, just one word says it all. Arco. Designed in 1962 by Archille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni the light broke almost every design convention of the time. A sweeping telescopic stainless steel arc is tethered by bolts to a 60 kg block of solid grey veined Carrara marble, used because the intended concrete base was considered to be too expensive. The marble has a single hole pierced through it to allow it to be more easily carried during manufacturer and to add a degree of vulnerability to its impenetrable mass. This huge lump of stone is there to counter balance the bright polished adjustable light head which hangs implausibly on the end of the extended stem over two metres away. With an on/off floor switch and a choice of halogen or integral dimmable LED the Arco is, was and always will be brilliant.
