The Arch Floor Lamp was designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1962 and modeled on a streetlight to project the light source eight feet from its heavy marble base. The large arc of the stem extends to the flower-like shade at one end and the marble base at the other, balancing the whole piece perfectly. It was originally designed to illuminate a dining table but it is suited to a range of uses around the home. The Arch floor lamp is available with a white marble base and has a stainless steel telescopic stem. The stem can be adjusted in two places for the ideal reach. This lamp also has a large metal shade in a stylish bowl shape. The base of this lamp is very heavy but that is where the distinctive hole in the marble comes in. More than 40 years since it was first introduced, the Arco floor lamp has become an iconic silhouette that is both extremely elegant and functional Functional elegance sums up this fantastic floor lamp designed by Achille Castiglioni using Carrara style marble. Carrara is a town in the Italian Alps. The marble (Michelangelo's favorite) from this area has been used in Italy since Roman times. Most rooms have the electrical output for a ceiling lamp right in the middle of the ceiling, but most dining tables are not placed in the middle of a room. Castiglioni was unhappy because of the cable going from the output to the position where the pendant lamp is fixed to illuminate the table. For this reason he designed Arco in 1962.
