Icons + Innovations

A stable of world-renowned design giants have left their marks on this Italian powerhouse, from the early days of the Castiglionis to acclaimed contemporary designers like Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Antonio Citterio and Patricia Urquiola.

 

Cutting-edge technologies and the highest-quality materials are natural complements to the bold, forward-thinking design ethos that’s ingrained into every FLOS concept.

Decorative possibilities and practical solutions abound in the customer-favorite String Light Pendant by FLOS. We tasked three Lumens Trade Partners with using this infinitely configurable fixture to solve specific interior design challenges.

Snoopy Table Lamp in Green

The Snoopy Table Lamp is one design that embodies the Castiglioni brothers’ jovial temperament. A charming character with an elaborate and inventive fantasy world, Snoopy—created by Charles Schulz in 1950 for his Peanuts cartoon strip—was the perfect fit to become a Castiglioni creation, as the cartoon character’s sense of adventure and imagination complemented the brothers’ own creativity.

“If you’re not curious, forget it.”

-Achille Castiglioni
