You cannot make a decorative object without a reason. I say that design is the search for perfection translated into form. - Achille Castigllioni

The original Teraxacum pendant lights designed by Achille Castliglioni and his brother Piercomo for Flos in the 1960s made use of innovative resin spinning techniques to create a futuristic yet organic form. This version, the Teraxacum 88 Ceiling and Wall light, was designed in the late 1980's and reverts to the most simplistic of geometric arrangements. A series of triangles are linked to create a support for a series of globe bulbs. The result is a timeless design that celebrates pure form and light itself.

The Teraxacum Ceiling and Wall light provides direct and reflected light. The structure is formed by 5 pressed polished aluminum triangles and holds 15 bulbs.

  • Recommended light source: 15 x HSGSG 28W E27 28W 2900K Globo D126 370lm, or 15 x LED E27 3W 2500K Globo Glid 160lm.

Please note this fitting is supplied without the bulbs.

CEO Piero Gandini says"Each time a project is launched, we feel we are about to make the best lamp in the world, that’s it. It's the Flos philosophy."

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.   ..
