Flos Fucsia Twelve

The Fucsia is a fantastic, delicate suspension light by Achille Castiglioni for Flos. The light is a bright hand blown cone of clear glass with an opaque sandblasted bottom rim, a base lip containing an opaline silicone bumper ring and an internal fitting of tubular powder coated steel. The Fucsia provides direct, non-diffused light and though it is designed for a small reflector spot it can take any bulb of your choice, bearing in mind that it will be visible. Available in singles with an individual ceiling rose or in groups of three, eight and twelve all of which hang from arms attached to preset ceiling mounts. The Fucsia works beautifully in kitchen and living spaces with the single lights best when hung in a line and the groupings working better over tables, counters or in open space to create a modern chandelier effect.

Achille Giacomo Castiglioni was born in Milan, Italy in 1918 the younger brother of Pier who was born in 1913. After graduating in architecture in 1944, Achille joined his brother’s design practise and began research into shapes, techniques and new materials, aimed at developing an integral design process. The professional partnership of Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni became one of the most witty, elegant and innovative partnerships in modern design history, responsible for such marvels as the Taccia lamp, the Snoopy lamp and the eccentric perfection of the Arco, which required two people and a broom handle to move it. The brothers worked from the viewpoint that design must restructure an object's function, form and production process and applied this maxim to everything that they produced. Castiglioni described this process with these words: Start from scratch. Stick to common sense. Know your goals and means.

For fifty years Flos have been crafting objects out of light. Light is the medium they work in order to express new ideas and illuminate emotions. Flos see the future, embrace the past and live in the present, facing the challenges and choices that have shaped their image and identity. History has taught them to fan the flames of provocation into new poetic notions of functionality, to trust intuition, to dare to create products that no one else would and to establish new typologies and archetypes. Flos are connected to the old masters of design yet happy to promote new talents, to command high technological status, to be revered for what they have done and what they might yet do. Flos open the way through experimentation and the use of revolutionary materials, they strive to conceive new languages around light and to chart new aesthetics, new freedoms for living. Flos walk the fine line between art and design, craftsmanship and industry, between an individual idea and the collective imagination.
