Description

Pushing design to the level of art, Achille Castiglioni creates brilliantly imagined objects that illustrate his love of paradox and, at the same time, a thoughtful concern for a formal balance. An example of this is his Taccia Table Lamp (1962), which he created with older brother Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. The design is like an upside-down hanging lamp. Covering the top of a deep translucent glass bowl is a concave sheet of spun aluminum in a matte white finish. This sheet acts as a reflecting screen for the bulb, which is hidden in the extruded aluminum base. This base is corrugated to better disperse the bulb’s heat and effectively prevents glare from the bulb. The translucent glass bowl is not attached to the stand, allowing the user to change the light direction by rotating the bowl. Bulb (included): 16W LED, 2700K. Made in Italy.
