Classic, like us.

As we celebrate our 110 years, we’re excited to welcome new designers and continue long established partnerships. Some of the designs created as early as the 1960s remain with us and stay current to this day. Here are just some of the Classic designs that have become an iconic piece over the years. 

Minotti Still Table, 2002.

With light, quality and the compilation of laser cut metal discs the Still Table draws immediate attention. Designed in 2002 by Rodolfo Dordoni, the table is an example of Minotti’s dedication to quality and craft through decades of technological innovation 
and continues as a classic piece amongst Minotti’s collection.

USM Haller Storage, 1969.

USM’s principle of modular furniture in timeless design remains to this day. Providing a tailor-made solution that can be expanded or reconfigured at any time, USM's design allows room for individual versatility and creativity.

The Haller, which was initially intended for use in their offices, gathered fashion attention over its versatility, durability and style. Its symbolic status was solidified in 2001 when it was included in the permanent collection of MoMA in New York. More recently, in 2015, USM celebrated their 50th-anniversary of Haller’s creation.

Flos Taccia Table Lamp, 1962.

The Taccia Table Lamp was designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1958 for Flos and is arguably one of the most iconic lamps from Italian modern lighting design. “Taccia was devised in 1958, designed and prototyped in 1959 and, after several years of study of the prototype by Flos it was for the first time produced in 1962.” Castiglioni, in an interview in 1970.

Magis Air Armchair, 2006.

From its innovative technical production of air-moulding, the Air Armchair is a combination of simplicity, function and durability. Lightweight and stackable, it continues to be a favourite amongst the Magis collection.

Oluce Atollo Table Lamp, 1977.

Designed for Oluce in 1977 by Vico Magistretti, the Atollo Table Lamp represents a masterful composition of geometric shapes. The cylinder and cone redefine the classic table lamp to create a luminous sculpture that is both decorative and essential. Part of permanent collections in major museums of design, the Atollo is a true icon of Italian design.

Flos Taraxacum, 1988.

The Taraxacum 88 by Flos is an updated design of the original Taraxacum created in 1960. Designed by Achille Castiglioni, this intricate hanging fixture evokes the bloom of a dandelion and was designed with the need of light for special occasions, never sacrificing style and beauty.  

Minotti Cortina Armchair, 2005.

Since 2005, the Cortina Armchair has become an icon of Minotti style. Designed by Gordon Guillaumier, its lightweight metal structure, which seems to defy the force of gravity makes for considerably more versatile use and variety of combinations.

Artemide Tizio Table Lamp, 1972.

Designed by Richard Sapper, the lamp is featured in the Architecture & Design collections of both MoMA and The Met and won Compasso d’Oro award for Industrial Design 1979. The Tizio Table Lamp displays classic minimalist form and proves practicality with adjustable positioning of its bulb and arm.

Flos Parentesi, 1971.

A collaborative design between Achille Castiglioni and Pio Manzu, the Parentesi was named after the parenthesis symbol, a visual reference to the nickel-plated shaped tube that lives on a floor-to-ceiling steel cable. With its exposed bulb, metal and plastic construction, this industrial style lamp paved the way for various imitated models which never matched.

Flos Arco Floor Lamp, 1962.

The Arco Floor Lamp exudes form, function and style. “We were thinking about a lamp that shines light onto a table. They already existed, but you had to walk around them. To leave enough space around the table, the base had to be at least two meters away. Which was how the idea for Arco came into being.” Designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1962 for Flos.
