Designed by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for FLOS.
"Toio is the humorous translation coined by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for the English word toy, with that special linguistic divertissement that lets them appropriate a foreign word and make it familiar and meaningful. And Toio, with its striking assemblage of a special car headlight imported from the United States that same year (1962), fishing rod running rings and shiny red lacquer, really does have the magic of a toy for the adult world."

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.
