After first opening its doors in 1971 Flos acquired brands and opened new a new factory on a path to bring cutting edge creativity to the interior lighting industry. Their later collaborations with Achille Castiglioni in the 80's established Flos in the market by developing a family of lighting, the Brera Series. Later partnerships with contemporary talent including Philippe Starck, Jasper Morrison, Konstantin Grcic, Marc Newson, Piero Lissoni, Marcel Wanders, Patricia Urquiola and many others continued to propel Flos as a leader in modern interior lighting. Pairing with talented design professionals has become a core element of the company's mandate and extends to all areas of its brand including promotional activities and artful photography.
Having received much critical acclaim, Flos is a five time winner of the Compasso d'Oro Industrial Design Award and have secured commissions to illuminate several of Europe's great historical and architectural sites including Venice's Palazzo Grassi and the City of Amsterdam archives.
Today, Flos is a top choice amongst consumers for both private residences and commercial lighting applications. A versatile catalogue paired with a long standing reputation and design history makes Flos products a perfect addition to any space.

Tobia Scarpa works in the field of architecture, design and restoration. In 1969 he earned a degree in architecture form the Università di Venezia and the same year he won the 'Compasso d'Oro' award for the 'Soriana' easy chair. For his work as a designer, he has received many other awards, such as 'If Industrie Forum Design Hannover' in 1992.

In the architecture field, he works with public and private clients such as the Benetton Group, for whom he designed the entire complex in the industrial area of Castrette di Villorba (Treviso). The Benetton facilities are still today considered true aesthetic-functional paradigma, and exemplary works of industrial architecture.
