Toio, 1962

Toio floor lamp by A Castiglioni & P G Castiglioni for Flos.

Classic floor lamp providing indirect light. 

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.

The contemporary floor lamp was designed by brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, who were inspired by a car’s headlight. Available in either an LED or light bulb option, dimmer included.

Bulb (included): 1 x max 300W aluPAR 56 MFL 230/240V.

LED (included): 1 x max 300W 23W PRO PAR 56 1600lm 230/240V.

Flos was founded in 1962 in Merano, for the purpose of producing modern lighting.

Flos was founded in 1962 in Merano, for the purpose of producing modern lighting.

With the intention of developing new lighting concepts, the company enlisted the aid of Achille Castiglioni, Pier Giacomo Castiglioni and Tobia Scarpa. Many successful designs of this trio are still manufactured half a century after their initial realizations. One of the first materials the team experimented with was cocoon, a very pliable material made in the USA. In 1964 Sergio Gandini joined the company, and the headquarters were moved to a new site near Brescia.
