Flos Toio Limited Edition Floor Light Mat Black
Flos Toio Limited Edition Floor Light Mat Black designed by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1962.
Designer: Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni 1962
Among the most loved and best-known objects from brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, a prominent place in the collective memory undoubtedly goes to the Toio floor lamp, designed in 1962. Consisting of the playful pairing of a car headlight and a telescopic stem inspired by a fishing rod, the lamp owes its name to the ironic distortion of the English word toy, and takes on the magic of such an object for the adult world.
The limited edition is characterised by the special matt black textured finish of the steel base, the third unmistakable element of the lamp, which houses the visible transformer also painted in black colour.
Toio is equipped with a specially designed new LED lamp, which replaces the original halogen headlight, faithfully respecting its shape. Its light intensity can be adjusted thanks to the integrated dimmer.
Each piece of the Limited Edition is guaranteed by a holographic label that certifies the serial number and therefore its absolute unique nature. Toio Limited Edition is an unmissable opportunity for collectors and lovers of the timeless style of the Castiglioni brothers.
On the occasion of the celebrations for the centenary of Achille Castiglioni’s birth, Flos launches a Toio Limited Edition in a numbered series of 2,500 pieces. There are only 50 pieces available to purchase in the UK.
