Description:

The Arco Lamp is one of the most popular floor lamps ever made. Inspired by the street lamps in Italy, Achille Castiglioni developed this modern classic in 1962, combining the advantages of a floor and a hanging lamp. This way the elegant piece provides direct illumination without the need to fix it to the ceiling, courtesy of its eight-foot long arm. Its functionality and timeless style create a focal point in any interior.

As a work of art, Castiglioni’s Arco Lamp is part of the permanent exhibition at the New York Museum of Modern Art.

FurnishPlus produces the base of the Arco Lamp in a quality, hand-carved marble block, available in two colors, and the fixture is held by a sturdy arched carbon steel shaft.

About the Designer

See Full Collection of Achille Castiglioni

Cherished worldwide, Achille Castiglioni was born in Milan in 1918, graduating in architecture from the university of his birthplace in 1944. Upholding the intrinsically key animating spirit of Italian design, particularly within lighting, Castiglioni has worked alongside some of the most prestigious furniture manufacturers from Italy. It is, however, the self-titled integral designer’s work collaborations with his brothers, Livio and Pier, that Castiglioni will be best remembered for. Dedicated to experimentation with industrial products, the Italian exhibited keen interest towards the direction of urban planning, architecture, and design, performing analysis and research on new forms, techniques and materials. Achille Castiglioni earned great international recognition for his projects applied to serial production in the fields of lighting fixtures and furniture, as well as for his breathtaking installations realized around the world. In 1969, he was nominated Professor of Artistic Industrial Design, chairing the Faculty of Architecture in Turin until 1980, whilst in 1986 Castiglioni was made Honorary Member of the Faculty of Royal Designers for Industry by the Royal Society of Art in London. MoMA’s permanent collection in New York hosts no less than 14 of his works, while the coveted designer was presented with the illustrious Compasso d'Oro award on an impressive 9 occasions.
