Flos entered into an agreement with Craig Corona for the acquisition of Lukas Lighting. The move is expected to boost Flos’s growth in the North American contract market.
Flos USA sees Lukas Lighting’s market position in line with its expansion goals in the areas of distribution, service and production. This integration is expected to better the company’s time to market and its ability to offer an extended range of customized solutions.
NYC-based Lukas Lighting specializes in the design, development and manufacturing of custom lighting products. Its custom division develops projects including, but not limited to, corporate interiors, retail chains and hospitality with the possibility to tailor and engineer each project based on clients’ needs. Lukas Lighting produced installations for JP Morgan Chase, Michael Kors and Four Seasons Hotels.
Lukas Lighting was acquired less than eight months after Flos purchased Ares, a manufacturer of architectural outdoor lighting.
Established in 1962 in Merano, Flos has a catalogue of products by designers including Achille Castiglioni, Philippe Starck, Antonio Citterio, Piero Lissoni, Marcel Wanders, Konstantin Grcic, Jasper Morrison, Patricia Urquiola, Ron Gilad, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and Michael Anastassiades. The company has single-brand stores in Rome, Milan, Paris, Hong Kong, Stockholm, New York and Lyon.
