The Luminator floor lamp was deigned by Italian designer Achille Castiglioni and his brother designer Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1955. This is a rare copper version of the Luminator lamp as it was manufactured by Gilardi e Barzaghi during the first manufacturing edition in 1955, winning the Compasso d’Oro award that same year. The Luminator lamp was later manufactured by Arform in 1957, and it has been manufactured by Italian lighting company Flos since 1994.
