You need to set up your filters in the right way. You almost need to protect yourself from the noise. Remove the excess information. Remove everything and just live with the bare minimum

The Light Suites Superloon

“Design makes things seem special, and who wants normal if they can have special? And that’s the problem. There are better ways to design than putting a big effort into making something look special. Special is generally less useful than normal, and less rewarding in the long term”

Curiosity drives the genie

It’s 3:30 p.m. and Maurizio Stocchetto, owner of the Bar Basso, crosses the door of the historic Milanese bar as usual, and with a smile across his face he greets us and orders his coffee. Son of Mirko Stocchetto, inventor of the famous “Negroni Sbagliato”, Maurizio is a funny and kind-hearted man. It’s from his father that he has inherited elegance as well as the talent of making you feel at home

Nasa 2018 Re-Edition

“I want to copy the sun. I’d like to plagiarise the sun.” As always, he aimed high. Speaking of industrial plagiarism in 1974. The result of Achille Castiglioni’s excogitations was Nasa, a hilarious and most unlikely object that could be carried everywhere. A reading lamp that looks for all the world like a toy

Ventosa 2018 Re-Edition

Effective, active and incisive. The lamps made by the Castiglioni brothers are never inanimate, but provoke behaviours, solve problems. They exact a smile. Ventosa will sit happily on any smooth surface, whisky bottle included

The sneak peek from Light+Building

At this year’s edition of Light+Building fair, Flos is pleased to present its universe of fine architecural lighting produts. The new solutions of fixtures and systems for any residential or professional application, either indoors or outdoors.

The best design lecture ever

An original film on Achille Castiglioni’s lecture at the 39th International Design Conference in Aspen, 1989. As an amateur rather than an official document, the film conveys in an extraordinarily authentic way all the admiration, curiosity and genuine enjoyment that the great Master of design and a fundamental figure in the history of FLOS was able to arouse in the public through his genius, his vitality and his rare powers of communication.

Old fashioned never ages

Many follow a lead just because it is fashionable, sure Jos Gibson is not one of them. He seeks things that he really likes and enjoy no matter the contest, being authentic to his true self
