Growth & Evolution
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.
The collaboration with Achille Castiglioni continued through the ’80s, and in 1992 he introduced the "family of products" concept to the market with the Brera series. At the same time, Flos continued to scout for emerging talent at an international level.
In 1988 the company started collaborating with Philippe Starck. Other talented designers followed thereafter: Jasper Morrison, Konstantin Grcic, Marc Newson, Antonio Citterio, Marcello Ziliani, Marcel Wanders, Sebastian Wrong, Laurene Leon Boym, Piero Lissoni, Rodolfo Dordoni, Tim Derhaag, Johanna Grawunder, Joris Laarman, Knud Holscher, Barber & Osgerby, Patricia Urquiola, Paul Cocksedge and Ron Gilad.
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.
Its image and advertising campaigns are entrusted to famous international photographers like Jean-Baptiste Mondino.

In 1957, Tom Jones and Rollins Jolly founded a commercial carpet company that revolved around its people. Jones said, “We are in the people business, we just happen to make carpet.”
Established in 1957, J+J Flooring Group is a leading manufacturer of commercial specified flooring. With our two brands – Invision broadloom and modular carpet and Kinetex textile composite flooring – we provide a range of product and service solutions to meet the needs of our customers in the corporate workplace, education, healthcare, retail and hospitality sectors.

In 1967, J+J Flooring Group shifted its exclusive focus to commercial broadloom carpet with an emphasis on value and performance. Expanding into the high-end and modular sector, J+J Flooring Group acquired Invision Carpet Systems in 1994, and J&J Commercial and Invision were merged into a single brand and sales team in 2003 to form J+J/Invision. Since then, J+J/Invision has grown to one of the most well respected and most specified brands in the commercial carpet industry.
In 2010, J+J Flooring Group purchased Templeton Hospitality Carpet located in Dalton, Georgia. Templeton, established in 1974, manufactures and supplies carpet to the hospitality market segment. The acquisition of Templeton Hospitality significantly expanded the resources of J+J Flooring Group to offer the many manufacturing amenities; including fiber extrusion, yarn processing, broadloom and modular finishing. Such resources make J+J/Templeton one of the few vertically integrated hospitality brands with full manufacturing and quality control.
