The company Flos was founded in 1962 in South Tyrol, specifically in Merano. The target was to design and produce a modern and up-to-date lighting. The founders of Flos began, together with local production facilities, to experiment with materialssuch as Cocoon, which today plays a major role in the light world.

Flos hit the spirit of the times and became within 10 years a respected and well-known company. Today Flos is one of the most important firms in the field of decorative and designed architectural lighting and regarded as a trendsetter and pioneer in the design and use of its materials. An extremely wide range of timeless, and durable products with very good value retention characterize this luminary manufacturer. This is demonstrated by the first models of the company in the Cocoon range, which are still in circulation, and are still being produced, with great success.
