The lighting company Flos has been running the Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002) homage above for some time now. Anyway, I would like to share the image with you because according to me (and a lot of others) Achille Castiglioni is one of the greatest designer ever.

I actually got a chance to meet Achille Castiglioni during an magnificent exhibition in Cologne some 12-13 years or so ago which he had designed for Cappellini. We had a nice and relaxed chat. Like a school boy I got his autograph in the show catalogue as well 🙂

Designboom has written a great piece about Achille Castiglioni with a lot of pictures of his products.
