Taraxacum Pendant Lamp
Made by Flos
The Taraxacum 88 lamp was created in 1960. The original design contained bulbs hidden under a transparent diffuser. In 1988, the design was revamped into a mixture of deep incandescent lighting adding cool, polished triangular aluminum features. Marking the year of its new design the Taraxacum was re-named the "Taraxacum 88".
The original lamps are made using a unique, spun resin cocoon found in other iconic Flos lights by the Castiglioni Brothers, and later by Marcel Wanders.
The core of this Achille Castiglioni designed decorative hanging light fixture comprises of 20 pressed and polished aluminum equilateral triangles fitted with electrical sockets. These sockets are filled with 60 clear 25 watt globe lamps. The suspension fixture provides direct and reflected incandescent light. The finish is transparent.
