Description

Toio floor lamp, designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for Flos, is an Italian design classic from 1962. Toio is an experimental combination of playful design and industrial warehouse aesthetics, and it was inspired by the works of the French avant-garde artist Marcel Duchamps. The sturdy steel base of Toio supports the cord-winder and vertical stem that is equipped with a light head of a car. The adjustable height and dimmable bulb make Toio a versatile luminaire that can be used as a bright general light or a delightful detail of the interior. Award-winning Toio has been included in the permanent collection of New York’s MoMA.

Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni

Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni

The Italian architect and designer brothers Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002) and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni (1913-1968) are among the greatest names of modern Italian design. Their father was a notable Italian architect Giannino Castiglioni, and also their brother Livio Castiglioni became an architect and designer. Achille and Pier Giacomo both studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and later worked there as teachers. Their collaboration was productive and innovative, and the designs were often radical and humorous.

Some of their best-known works include the Mezzadro chair featuring a tractor seat, and many lighting designs for Flos, including the Snoopy table lamp and the floor lamp Toio that is lit by a car headlight. Pier Giacomo, who passed away in 1968, won six Compasso d’Oro awards during his career, and Achille was awarded the prestigious design award nine times.
