Design Classics Reinvented

From the Castiglioni brothers to Paolo Rizzatto, discover iconic lighting by the world’s most celebrated lighting designers.



One of the first lights designed by brothers, Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, the Luminator has been reinvented in five vibrant colours. Capturing the visionary aspect of industrial design, Luminator breaks conventional rules, with a radical approach to form and scale.

Inspired by Dadaism and the use of everyday objects, a sense of irony was key to the Castiglioni brothers’ creative process. Luminator originally employed a car head lamp as the light source, whilst the newly launched version features the ultimate led lighting technology.  





265 Chromatica


265 was designed by Paolo Rizzatto in 1973; marking the Italian architect’s first foray into lighting. In its original form, the lamp paid homage to painting, combining the three primary shades of blue, yellow and red. Although the original design was always intended to be bold and colourful, it was previously only released in monochrome black and white.

Parentesi 50


A collaboration between two of the world’s most revered designers, although Pio Manzù and Castiglioni never actually met, they both contributed to the development of the Parentesi Lamp
Originally launched by Flos in 1971, Parentesi has been reinvented in two brand new finishes, to mark its 50 year anniversary. This extraordinary floor light celebrates the functionality of light, placing the industrial elements at the core of its design.




Designed in 1998, the Diabolo Pendant Light was Achille Castiglioni’s final collaboration with Flos. Inspired by the juggling game, derived from a Chinese yo-yo, Achille imagined a light that could move up and down via a pulley system, allowing the user to adjust the height to suit the needs of the interior space.

Twenty years after its introduction, Diabolo returns, with the latest lighting technology, available in two new colours, cherry red and brown - colours Achille used frequently in his ceramic pottery.
