Designer
Flos Taccia Table Lamp with Methacrylate Diffuser Designed by:
  • Pier Giacomo Castiglioni , 1962
Pier Giacomo Castiglioni

Pier Giacomo Castiglioni

Italy, 1913 – 1968

The Italian designer and architect Pier Giacomo Castiglioni is the second of the three Castiglioni brothers. Like his brothers, Pier Giacomo Castiglioni studied architecture at Milan Polytechnic. In 1938 Pier Giacomo Castiglioni and his elder brother, Livio, founded a practice in Milan, which the youngest brother, Achille, joined in 1944. All three Castiglioni brothers were interested in both technology and art.

Until his death in 1968, Pier Giacomo collaborated with his brother, Achille Castiglioni, on numerous designer objects. In a 1957 exhibition in Como, Italy, Achille and Pier Giacomo exhibited their vision of a modern lifestyle; a colorful jumble of styles that incorporated old and new furnishings, instead of uniformly styled interiors. Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni showed many of their designs, including their “readymades,” Mezzadro, a stool consisting of a tractor seat mounted on a substructure and Sella, a telephone stool with a bicycle saddle as a seat.

The two brothers were particularly successful with the lighting they designed for Flos, and Artemide. They playfully explored new possibilities for form, linking technical innovation and minimalist economy of means, to produce highly functional objects that were as aesthetically satisfying as they were practical. Castiglionis designed their Taraxacum Suspension Lamp in 1960 and the Splugen for Flos was launched in 1961. Another Castiglioni design for Flos was the 1962 Arco Floor Lamp, which hangs its head like a flower and is beautifully balanced by a heavy marble base.
