On the occasion of the Valencia Design Week and World Design Capital Valencia 2022, FLOS is pleased to invite you to the talk “YO SOY ARCO. Una herencia de buen diseño del pasado al futuro“.
The talk, which will take place in the evocative setting of the Gothic Cloisters of the Centre del Carme Cultura Contemporània on Monday 19 September at 6.30 p.m., will feature, together with Flos, Giovanna Castiglioni, daughter of the famous architect Achille Castiglioni and narrator of the Foundation of the same name. A moment of encounter and debate in the presence of the museum’s director, Jose Luis Perez Pont, and in collaboration with the director of DXI magazine, Alejandro Benavent.
60 years after its birth, the company aims to celebrate and disseminate the genius of one of the historic masters of Italian design, Achille Castiglioni, and the absolute topicality of the projects carried out for Flos together with his brother Pier Giacomo since the 1960s. Castiglioni’s design philosophy and iconic products such as the Arco lamp, which also celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, remain a fundamental source of inspiration and a manifesto of good design even today.
