About

Its name invokes the iconic toy best played in a park, but this light is seriously smart. Offering three types of illumination—diffused, direct, and reflected—the FRISBI doubles down designed Achille Castiglioni’s ability to play with the power of illusion. Three barely-there, fine steel cables suspend the opal acrylic diffuser, making it appear as it if it is floating. A black metal stem and wire mesh basket assembly secure the reflector to its 16" power cord. Inspiration behind the design: The work of Achille Castiglioni challenges us to look with renewed wonder at the objects that we see everyday. Like his other work, Frisbi inspires by astounding, changing our perspective in a way that blends fantasy with function. This item is compatible only in the United States. For customers located outside of this region, please inquire for availability in your area.

About Flos (Manufacturer)

Founded by Sergio Gandini in 1962 in Merano Italy, FLOS has revolutionized the art of lighting by honoring tradition while embracing innovation.


FLOS is, above all else, about craftmanship, and as a result the brand has cultivated long and successful partnerships with some of the world’s most renowned lighting artists. Working with icons such as the Castiglioni Brothers , Tobia Scarpa, Philippe Starck and Antonio Citterio, among others, FLOS has earned the respect of the industry while growing its offerings to include residential, commercial, and custom-made concept-based products.


An award winning institution in its own right, FLOS has earned worldwide recognition as the leader in the field.


Today, Sergio’s grandson Piero Gandini sits at the helm, holding fast to the values and ideas established by his grandfather while moving confidently into the future.

About The Maker

For over 50 years, FLOS has sought to illuminate the human experience by offering finely crafted pieces by the world’s most beloved artists. We do it by remaining true to our core values. We believe that light is more than just a basic need, it is a living substance that helps us express and explore new ideas and emotions. It makes sense of the past, it brightens our present, and it lends brilliance to the future. We align ourselves with the masters of design. From legends to new talents, we are proud to work with artists who are tuned into cultural conversation, who look to better their work by making it sustainable and beautiful, and who demand nothing less than excellence. We believe that provocation is a necessary element of evolution. We embrace the revolutionary spirits of our designers—we encourage them to seek out new poetic notions of functionality while staying ahead of the latest technological advancements. We believe in experimentation. It is how we have discovered the most influential and iconic elements of our work. No effort is wasted. We trust our intuition. We have confidence in our work and the work of our partners. We have fun. We offer pieces that are serious about their sense of playfulness and irony. We know our place. FLOS stands at the meeting point of art and design, of craftsmanship and industry, of limited editions and large scale manufacturing, and of the individual and the collective imagination. It is a unique space, and it is where we work best.
