The beginnings of Flos (meaning “flower” in Latin) blossomed from a brilliant idea.

In Latin, Flos means “flower” and stands for the blossoming of brilliant ideas that summons the past, brightens our future, and breathes poetry and virtuosity into the here and now. For Flos, great lighting design addresses our needs, but even more so, feeds our desires, and is born of provocation, experimentation, intuition, and a playful sense of joy. Collaborations with legendary designers and revolutionary artists since its founding in Merano in 1962 has led Flos to become one of the most recognized global manufacturers of innovative, avant-garde lighting for residences and commercial sites alike, known for both new and iconic works that are well-considered, emotionally charged, and creatively ingenious.

Now, over 60 years since its inception, Flos maintains a global reach, exporting products to over 80 countries worldwide. Whether celebrating modern icons like Tobia Scarpa’s Bauhaus-inspired Jucker lamp and the now ubiquitous Arco lamp from Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, or kindling the senses with contemporary marvels like Philippe Starck’s notorious Miss Sissi and the Glo-Ball series by modern minimalist master Jasper Morrison, a light that invokes the radiant calm of the full moon, Flos has time and again redefined modern and contemporary lighting, gracing the public with radiant luminosities that elevate any interior space. It is no wonder then that Flos has won numerous international awards for forward-thinking, emotionally provocative designs, and that its pieces are now featured in the permanent collections of art and design museums worldwide.

In 2005, following the acquisition of Federic Martinez’s firm Antares, Flos Architectural Lighting took flight, uniting new designers with the most advance technological discoveries to create work that ignited public spaces and large-surface areas with dazzlingly poetic sculptures that resist convention and nurse the imagination for environments that generate warmth and inspire awe. In early 2020, Flos Outdoor introduced a new collection, blending architectural and decorative lighting in outdoor spaces like gardens, parks, and landscapes. With additional works by designers like Antonio Citterio, Piero Lissoni, Marcel Wanders, Konstantin Grcic, Patricia Urquiola, Ron Gilad, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Michael Anastassiades, Vincent Van Duysen, Barber & Osgerby, Nendo, and many more, Flos continues to inspire audiences as the meeting point between art and design, the convergence of craftsmanship and industry, research and experimentation, creating works that are sustainable, inventive, and above all, beautiful.
