Description

Decades after creating his Taraxacum S2 (1960), Achille Castiglioni updated his own design with the introduction of his Taraxacum 88 Pendant Lamp (1988). Taraxacum is the scientific name for the plant commonly known as dandelion, but unlike a weed that can become a lawn pest, the Taraxacum 88 is sculptural art that provides direct and reflected light. Hanging from a steel ceiling rose, the structure is made of 20 pressed and polished aluminum triangles that reflect the light of 60 clear globes. Almost like a reversed version of the original Taraxacum, which hid the bulbs under a transparent diffuser, the Taraxacum 88 celebrates the play of reflection and light. The lamp has a satisfying balance between the contrasting shapes of the round bulbs and triangular backdrops, as well as in its mixture of warm incandescent light and cool aluminum. Bulbs (included): incandescent 25W/120V/G40 medium. Made in Italy by Flos.
