Taccia's base features a truncated, fluted column that houses the light fitting. It's upside down 'dome' reflector creates the illusion that light is generated from the shade rather than it's base. The light is renowned for being a classic of Italian mid-century design.
The painted aluminium reflector provides both direct and indirect light. It is gloss white on the outside and matt white on the inside and encased in transparent mouth blown glass. The stem is crafted from matt black bronze or silver anodised aluminium with a nickel plated base.
Cable length 220cm supplied with on/off dimmer switch that adjusts the light from 10-100%.
Recommended light source: Small version -1 x COB LED 16W Dimmer 2700K CRI92 1290lm. Large version - 1 x COB LED 28W Dimmer 2700K CRI93 2068lm.
The 1960's were a period of great experimentation and creativity in Italian lighting design, and there is no company more associated with this innovative period than Flos. Working with designers such as Pier Giacomo and Achille Castiglioni at their creative peak, they developed iconic table lamps such as Taccia and Snoopy as well as the Arco Floor Lamp, one of the world's most desired (and oft-imitated) designs.
Flos is also synonymous with 'The Cocoon Technique', originally used by the US Army as a protective material for packaging, this special resin sprayed on a steel structure gave birth to several iconic pieces designed by the Castiglioni brothers and Tobia Scarpa such as the Taraxacum Pendant Light. ..
