Arco

The ingenious floor lamp, Arco, is one of the most imitated design icons ever designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1962. Originally designed in response to the need of a suspension lamp that could shine its light on a table without requiring holes to be drilled in the ceiling, all aspects of the Arco are functional but decorative at the same time. The heavy marble base looks beautiful while simultaneously offers a counterweight to the LED lighting. An absolute must-have for the true design enthusiast.

Achille Castiglioni

Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002 Milaan) studied architecture at the Polytechnic University of Milan. After graduating in 1944 he and his brothers Pier Giacomo (1913-1968) and Livo (1911-1979) founded a design bureau. There, Castiglioni started exploring shapes, techniques and new materials aimed at developing an integral design process. Castiglioni also taught at the Polytechnic University of Turin and later became a professor of architectural and design subjects at the Politecnico di Milano. His designs have become classics and are rewarded with national and international awards. He received the Compasso d’Oro nine times.
