UNIQUE DESIGN : ARCO FLOOR LAMP
Designed by Achille and Pier Castiglioni in 1962 the brief for the Arco floor lamp was simple: create an overhead light without the hassle of wiring it into the ceiling. The result is a perfect demonstration of the sweet spot where form and function meet: a heavy marble base, an arched steel neck, and a free-hanging bulb and shade – all working together to create an object that’s as simple as it can be and totally nails its brief. Designed by the Castiglioni brothers in Milan, the Arco lamp is reported to be inspired by street lighting. Since 1962, it has become a much-imitated piece, spawning many imitators and knock-offs. Looking around modern lighting shops, it’s easy to say you’ve seen it a million times before, but the clarity of thought that went into the original design in the ‘60s proved to be a pivot point that changed lighting design forever. Till date this lamp fits in any area of interiors.
