Fold Collection is a range of lights with lampshades that create optical effects: the diffusers are produced in either stainless steel with a super mirror finish or steel painted with a semi-gloss white finish. They enhance the brightness of the light source when the light is switched on and reflect the natural light in the room when it is off.

The Taccia lamp is a remarkable piece of design from 1962 – and it’s still in production today.
It was designed, by the Castiglioni brothers for Flos in 1962 as a functionable/adjustable table lamp for the modern home. The base is a fluted column of aluminium, topped with a clear glass shade with an aluminium reflector, which can be rotated to direct the light.
Achille Castiglioni said of Taccia in a 1970 interview: “We consider it the Mercedes of lamps, a symbol of success: perhaps because it looks like the shaft of a classical column. We certainly weren’t thinking of prestige when we designed it. We just wanted a surface that would stay cool.”
