Late 20th Century Taccia Table Lamp by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, Flos

Italy 2000's

An icon of Italian lighting design, la "Taccia" was designed by Pier Giacomo and Achille Castiglioni in 1962 for Flos, Italy. Designed as a playful trompe l'oeil, this table lamp is meant to visually reflect an upside-down pendant light hanging from the ceiling; a mind-bending move that gives this stationary object a sense of dynamism. The light emits a warm, diffused, reflected light--a concealed bulb bounces off the painted aluminum reflector which moves in tandem with the blown glass diffuser--positioning the soft even light in different directions. Referring aesthetically to aerospace design, the lunar cycle, and the classical torch; this piece is equal parts sculpture and lighting--truly an intriguing piece to walk around, adjust, and use in daily life.
One E27 Light Bulb each.
