The Toio Floor lamp has been designed by the Italian brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1962. This icon of Italian design has an industrial and sober style that seduces with its simplicity, practicality and originality. The bulb used originally is no other than a car headlight!
The base of the Toio floor lamp, very light visually, is made of painted steel. It houses a transformer and a cable reel. A small knob is placed on the latter to adjust the height of the nickel-plated brass hexagonal stem. At the top of the lamp, shiny, thin, rounded rods gently hold the bulb – a PAR56 – in place, giving the Toio floor lamp its refinement. Its light is diffused, indirect and non-dazzling. It will find its place in a multitude of interiors, whether modern or classic.

Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni
Italian architects and designers Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002) and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni (1913-1968) are among the greatest names in modern Italian design. Their father was a notable architect, Giannino Castiglioni, and their brother, Livio Castiglioni, also became an architect and designer. Achille and Pier Giacomo both studied architecture at Politecnico di Milano and then worked there as teachers. Their collaboration has been productive and innovative, and the designs are often radical and humorous.
Similar to the designers of the first half of the 20th century, the Castiglioni brothers derive the beauty of an object from its function. Purity of lines, simple components, quality of materials, aesthetics intervenes to support the function.
