lighting systems manufacterer (1962)
FLOS is an Italian lighting products company founded in Merano in 1962, by Dino Gavina and Cesare Cassina.
Born as a small laboratory, since the early years the company has become known in Italy and in the world experimenting with new materials and new stylistic and functional researches.
The company develops thanks to the collaboration with great Italian designers like the brothers Pier Giacomo and Achille Castiglioni and Tobia Scarpa.
Flos stands out in the quality furnishing lighting sector not only for stylistic innovations but also for the introduction of innovative materials never used before, such as the cocoon used previously only for packaging.
Flos moved to Bovezzo, in the province of Brescia in 1964. The same year Sergio Gandini joined the company, first as a councilor and then as managing director until becoming president in 1999.
