Design Holding by Flos, B&B Italia and Louis Poulsen

Design Holding, recently created by Investindustrial and The Carlyle Group, is the new global high-end interior design group that brings together the three iconic companies.

Piero Gandini, Chairman of Design Holding and CEO of Flos, declared:

“The idea behind Design Holding is to bring together companies that make excellence in design their founding value. If we look at Flos, B&B Italia and Louis Poulsen, in fact, we note that, despite being different in so many respects (furniture and lamps, the “Made in Italy” concept and Danish design), they have always shared strong values such as cultural commitment and the great quality of their products. (…)”

Established in 1962 in Merano, Italy, Flos is recognized as a world leading lighting company, offering high-end design lamps and innovative lighting systems for the residential and architectural sectors. The company has a rich catalogue of iconic products by legendary designers including Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Tobia Scarpa, Philippe Starck, Antonio Citterio, Piero Lissoni, Marcel Wanders, Konstantin Grcic, Jasper Morrison, Patricia Urquiola, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Michael Anastassiades, Vincent Van Duysen, Nendo, Formafantasma and many more.

Design Holding is the largest global high-end design group with a European heritage. Founded in December 2018 and jointly controlled by companies of the two leading investment groups Investindustrial and The Carlyle Group, Design Holding aims to further grow globally through acquisitions as well. Today the Group brings together a collection of powerful and complementary iconic companies: B&B Italia, Flos, Louis Poulsen, and their subsidiaries

B&B Italia is the leading Italian high-end design furniture brand, globally recognized for its iconic products and technological innovation. The Company has a unique product portfolio, marketed under the B&B Italia, Maxalto and Azucena brands for furniture and Arclinea for high-end kitchens.

Founded in 1874, the Danish lighting manufacturer Louis Poulsen creates products that encompass the duality of design and light. Every detail in the design has a purpose. Every design starts and ends with light.
