In 2019, FLOS USA introduces a limited-edition matte-black version of the global design icon, Toio designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for FLOS in 1962. Toio’s steel base is rendered in a dark embossed finish and the visible transformer is also painted black in a special global run of 2,500 pieces. Only 50 are available in the United States.

The 1962 Toio light surprises with its unexpected design. Italian duo Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni had a 300-watt car headlight shipped from the United States, which they joined with parts of a fishing rod to form a functional floor lamp. One of the duo’s experiments with readymade objects, Toio has become a design classic thanks to its surprising material juxtaposition and striking industrial appearance.

Brand
Flos

After first opening its doors in 1971 Flos acquired brands and opened 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.
