This item is a one-off clearance item to be sold on a first order, first served basis.

The Arco floor lamp has been in continuous production since 1962 and now considered a design classic. Every part of the design has a function. This iconic floor lamp features a genuine Carrara marble base that supports a spun aluminum shade via a curved stainless steel adjustable stem. The height extends to over 2m allowing placement of a table or sofa underneath.

"We were thinking about a lamp that shines light onto a table. They already existed, but you had to walk round 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. We wanted to make it with commercially available parts and we found that curved steel angle iron worked perfectly well. Then there was the problem of the counterweight: a heavy weight was needed to support it all. Our first thought was concrete, but then we chose marble because the same weight took up less space, and also because we could obtain a better finish for a lower cost. In Arco nothing is decorative: even the bevelled corners on the base have a function, which is not to hurt us; even the hole isn’t a flight of fantasy, but to make it easier to lift the base.” Achille Castiglioni
