IN THE SPOTLIGHT

The evolution of 265

In Rizzatto’s design, each part featured a specifically chosen primary colour: the head, the most important element, was drawn in red, the weight was yellow and the connecting arm, blue. The lamp was eventually produced in more muted shades, and while it is normally available in black and white, Rizzatto’s original colour proposal is now making its way onto the Flos catalogue to celebrate the architect’s original thinking.

DESIGNERS

Achille Castiglioni

Born in Milan in 1918. As early as 1940 he dedicated himself to testing industrial production with brothers Livio (1911-1979) and Pier Giacomo (1913-1968). After graduating in architecture in 1944, he began research into shapes, techniques and new materials, aimed at developing an integral design process.
