"We were thinking about a lamp that shines light onto a table.‎ They already existed, but you had to walk round them.‎ To leave enough space around the table, the base had to be at least two meters away.‎ Which was how the idea for Arco came into being.‎ We wanted to make it with commercially available parts and we found that curved steel angle iron worked perfectly well.‎ Then there was the problem of the counterweight: a heavy weight was needed to support it all.‎ Our first thought was concrete, but then we chose marble because the same weight took up less space, and also because we could obtain a better finish for a lower cost.‎ In Arco nothing is decorative: even the beveled corners on the base have a function, which is not to hurt us; even the hole isn’t a flight of fantasy, but to make it easier to lift the base.‎ ” Achille Castiglioni (interview for Ottagono, 1970)

Floor lamp providing direct light.‎ White Carrara marble base.‎ Satin-finish stainless steel telescopic stem.‎ Pressed, polished and zapon-varnished aluminum swiveling and height-adjustable reflector.‎
