Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni named this lamp after the English word for "toy" – and with good reason. This imaginative lamp captures the essence of creativity, merging industrial aesthetics with a whimsical and enduring design. It's evident why this iconic piece has won numerous accolades and even secured a spot in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The Toio floor lamp boasts an enameled steel base, which upholds a hexagonally-shaped, nickel-plated brass stem. Fishing rod rings are ingeniously used along the stem to direct the electrical cord from the bulb to the transformer. A cleat, reminiscent of those found on boats, is incorporated at the base as a practical detail to coil the cord when the lamp's height is reduced. The Toio is equipped with an incandescent bulb and emits indirect light. Its height is adjustable and it's available in black, red, or white finishes. The inspiration for this modern floor lamp came from brothers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, who drew influence from a car headlight.
