Toio Limited Edition

c. 2019

by Achille + Pier Giacomo Castiglioni
for Flos

Toio floor lamp is a favorite among the collec­tion. In cele­bra­tion of designer Achille Castiglion­i’s cente­nary, Flos has released a limited edition global run of 2,500 pieces in a matte black finish. 

Similar to the stan­dard edition of the Toio floor lamp, the limited edition features an enamel steel base that supports a hexag­o­nal nickel-plated brass stem and along the lamp’s nickel-plated brass hexag­o­nal stem are fishing rod rings used to guide the elec­tri­cal cord from bulb to trans­former. A cleat on the base, like that found on a boat or ship, serves as a func­tional element designed to keep the cord neatly coiled in when the lamp is adjusted to a lower height. 

Achille + Pier Giacomo Castiglioni

Italy

In 1938, brothers Livio and Pier Giacomo created the Castiglioni Studio, after a few years of collaboration they were joined by a third brother, Achille, in 1944. By 1952 the designs from the studio were helmed by Pier and Achille. As industrial designers, the brothers pushed the limits of design and materials. Receiving a collective achievement of 9 Compasso d'Oro awards. It is believed that over the course of their careers Achille and Pier created over 150 products. Castiglioni Studio had design relationships with Flos, Zanotta, Alessi, and many more. Over the course of their career as design collaborators, the aesthetics of their designs were so in-line with one another, that there was never a clear delineation between the stylistic approaches of either brother.
