Arco Floor Lamp

The Arco Floor Lamp is designed as a long arching arm with a spherical bowl at the end and a weighted rectangular stone for the base. Designed and released in 1962 by brothers Pier Giacomo and Achille Castiglioni, the original intent was to create a lamp that didn’t show a power cord. Created out of spun aluminum, stainless steel, and marble, the Arco Floor Lamp has never stopped production since its successful debut in 1962. As a design consideration, the lamp also features a hole in the base so that the 75lb lamp can be moved with a broom handle.

Common Questions
Where do you place floor lamps?
Floor lamps are versatile lighting fixtures that can be positioned within a space for a range of uses from the task lighting of a reading chair or sofa to providing accent lighting along a wall or corner of the room. Floor lamps should never be placed within or nearby the flow of traffic as they could be easily knocked over.
How do you light up a room with a floor lamp?
Floor lamps are designed with various lighting strategies that range from classic stationary accent fixtures to arched and adjustable fixtures, lighting trees, and torchiere (upward) lighting designs. Good room lighting should be flexible enough to achieve a range of moods and ambiances and no one fixture should be seen as a solve-all solution to lighting.
How tall should a floor lamp be?
Floor lamps should have an overall height of roughly 58”-64” (147-163 cm) based on the standard sitting height of a person on a couch or chair. The bottom of the floor lamp shade should be roughly at or above a person’s sitting eye level and should try to match the edges of similar lighting fixtures within the space.
