In 1971 Flos opened its first subsidiary in Germany. In 1974 it purchased Arteluce, a historical brand founded in 1939 by Gino Sarfatti, and opened a new factory in Bovezzo, just outside the city of Brescia. During the '90s the company expanded its contract-related presence, launching a division focused on turnkey solutions. Piero Gandini, Sergio's son, has been Flos President and C.E.O. ever since 1999. The tradition of collaborating with highly-talented professionals also extends to Flos promotional activities.
