taccia small led table lamp

Design Achille Castiglioni, 1962
Aluminum, glass diffuser w/aluminum shade, ABS
Made by Flos

The Castiglioni brothers often created designs that challenged our perspective, and the Taccia, which gives the illusion of an upside-down hanging lamp, is an inspired example of that. This new, smaller version is approximately half the size of the original design created in 1962. It has a painted aluminum reflector that is gloss white on the inside and matte white on the outside. The diffuser is transparent blown glass and can change direction. The body is available in matte black or naturally anodized extruded aluminum. The base is nickel-plated ABS and PC (polycarbonate). It features an electric cable that measures 74.8 inches and includes a dimmer switch on the cord. Light adjustment can be customized between 10-100%. The plug-in power supply includes interchangeable plugs.

Achille Castiglioni said of Taccia in a 1970 interview: "We consider it the Mercedes of lamps, a symbol of success: perhaps because it looks like the shaft of a classical column. We certainly weren't thinking of prestige when we designed it. We just wanted a surface that would stay cool." Taccia was devised in 1958, designed and prototyped in 1959 and, after several years of study of the prototype by Flos to devise a mass production scheme, produced in 1962.

Achille Castiglioni was a renowned Italian industrial designer often inspired by everyday things. He made use of ordinary materials, preferring to use minimal materials to create a maximal effect. He was best known for his lamps for Flos; Luminator, Arco, and the Snoopy Lamp.
Design and innovation have been the two main pillars of Flos lighting since 1962. Taking care of the Planet and its inhabitants through beautiful and sustainable lighting is a third new pillar.
