Flos Taraxacum 88 Pendant Light

taraxacum 88
Design Achille Castiglioni, 1988
Aluminum, glass light bulbs
Made in Italy by Flos

Taraxacum '88 is composed from a single basic element, a polished aluminum equilateral triangle fitted with electrical sockets. A number of these are hinged together to form an icosahedron, the Platonic form closest to a sphere. The sockets are filled with 60 transparent 25 watt Globolux light bulbs which are inlcuded.

Castiglioni said of Taraxacum '88: "It is a bit of a blow to energy-saving but a big chandelier is meant for community areas, lobbies and rooms that need a lot of light for special occasions and so it also needs to be decorative."

Achille Castiglioni's imaginative forms and simplistic designs have made him one of the most influential figures in Italian design.
