taj table lamp

taj table lamp

Design Ferruccio Laviani, 2011
Transparent or batch-dyed PMMA
Made in Italy by Kartell

Taj is more than a lamp, it is a three-dimensional sign, a luminous sculpture, a presence as much at home on our desk as on another piece of furniture. Although it is a table lamp, Taj abandons the articulated, jointed and mechanical stereotype for a simple form serving the practical function for which it is intended. Beautiful either on or off, Taj uses LED technology to optimize and minimize the light source as much as possible and at the same time it is a new step forward in meeting the corporate technical challenge by producing an object from unique know-how. Taj is produced in the completely "naked" transparent version, in the "frozen" satin-finished plastic version and in the white and black matte versions.

F. Laviani

Ferruccio Laviani (b. 1960) of Cremona, Italy graduated from Politecnico di Milano in architecture in 1986 and created industrial design objects, mainly lamps or lighting systems known for colored transparent plastics. From 1986-1991, he was a member of the De Lucchi studio, designing for various companies such as Credito Bergamasco, Mandarina Duck, Memphis, Olivetti, and Swatch. He came into prominence as the Memphis group began to leave its mark on International design. In 1991, he showed his silverware from the Morandotti collection at the "European Capitals of New Design” exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The same year, he began a collaboration with Kartell and is now an artistic director and consultant.
Kartell's image and its 59 years of history are described through the company's products. The development, the corporate strategies, the attention the company has paid to technology, the project and the design can be appreciated by observing the products Kartell has produced. Kartell's products express the language and the atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but at the same time, they are "contemporary articles," they incorporate many other values and messages and this is why they have become an integral part of our domestic design world.
