Description

The Arco Floor Lamp is characterised by a sturdy marble base, arched metal arm and adjustable reflector. The Italian designer brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni created the Arco lamp in 1962, and it has since become a design icon that has been featured in Hollywood films such as Diamonds Are Forever and The Italian Job. Reaching well over two metres in height, Arco makes a bold eye-catcher in any large space, public or domestic. The swivelling telescopic arm makes it easy to target the light to the desired direction.

Achille Castiglioni was a renowned Italian industrial designer. He was often inspired by everyday things and made use of ordinary materials. He preferred to use a minimal amount of materials to create forms with maximal effect.
