Various high street budget versions have been available for a number of years from the likes of John Lewis and Marks & Spencer, but there’s nothing like the real thing when it comes to the Arco floor lamp by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for Flos. If you want the original, now is a good time to get one, as Achica has it in clearance.
Yes, this 1962 design, inspired by street lights and still an icon of the era, is now more affordable. Although you will need a large room to fit it in. As you would expect, the floor lamp has a white Carrara marble base and a telescopic arched stem of stainless steel (with a satin finish) for adjustable, directional light. A dimmer switch also offers up an ambient glow for mood lighting too.
That size? 232cm tall (between 7 and 8ft) and 220cm tall. Usually it sells for £1,429, but for the next two days, it’s yours for £999.
Note you’ll have to quickly register (for free) if you’ve not visited Achica before.
