Toio* floor lamp first edition
Toio floor lamp
Achille & Piero Castiglioni
First model of the Toio lamp designed by Achille & his brother Piero Giacomo Castiglioni and manufactured by Flos.
The idea that a car headlamp could work as a light source led to the creation of this famous floor lamp. All the components are exposed in their original form: transformer, electric cable, car headlamp.
The steel base is painted in red. The hexagonal nickel-plated brass stem is adjustable in height and has a telescopic head.
All original parts in a good vintage condition.
H: 158 cm - 195 cm x L 21 cm x W 20 cm
* Toio is all about fun, the lamp owes its name to the ironic distortion of the English word toy
