The Arco floor lamp was designed in 1962 by Achille Castiglioni for Flos. The designer wanted to create a floor lamp that would be able to successfully illuminate different settings without the need for a fixed electrical output. The Arco Lamp is totally suitable for over a dining room table or coffee table in a living room. It can be used in any setting, either residential or maybe in the waiting area of a style conscious professional who wants to let his or her customers know that they are the right person for the job.
The Konkylie light was designed by Louis Weisdorf for the Tivoli Garden in Copenhagen in 1963. It was partly inspired at a technical level by Verner Panton's Moon lamp. Louis Weisdorf created the design for his next pendant light called Turbo in 1965. Consisting of 12 uniform aluminium lamellae spiral-twisted to form a flower-like sphere, the Turbo was partly inspired by Japanese rice-paper lanterns.
Many younger designers are fascinated by items from 60s and 70s. There are some interesting modern retro lamp shades, designed in the spirit of best Danish tradition, made usually of polypropylene plastic resulting in retro lamp shades with a refreshing modern touch.
