Designed by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1954 for FLOS.
In a sense it's true that Luminator was created specifically for the 1955 Compasso d'Oro, or better that it originated as our answer to demand for a "shape of the useful" for Italian industry.
A true classic of the design world. A simple floor lamp providing indirect light. A maximum 200W bulb ( 8 watt LED now recommended ) with reflector shines upwards. Featuring an Iron stem with vitrified enamel finish.
Painted galvanized metal legs.
1 x 8W LED E27 R125 2700k 750 lumen excluded.
ABOUT FLOS - For fifty years we have been crafting objects of light and shedding brightness on generations of dreams. For us, light is the substance for expressing new ideas and illuminating unexplored emotions. We write the future, reading our past and expressing the present, in a continuity of positive challenges and bold choices that have shaped our image and identity. Our history has taught us to fan the flames of provocation with research into new poetic notions of functionality. Trusting our intuition has always allowed us to create products that become icons, establishing new typologies and innovative archetypes. Connecting with masters of design. Discovering new talents. Commanding high technical and technological status. Staying tuned into mass culture. These qualities always place us at the cutting edge. Experimentation opens the way for us to use revolutionary materials - as in the past with Cocoon - and hi-tech solutions, today represented by OLEDs and eco-sustainable materials. By conceiving new languages around light, we chart new aesthetics and freedoms for living. Our lamps, of yesterday and today, never fail to be serious about their sense of play and irony. On the fine line that divides and unites art and design, craftsmanship and industry, the limited edition and larger scale manufacturing, an individual's idea and the collective imagination. That's our place. That's where you'll find us.
