Inspired by the blowball, the preface of a dandelion flower, Archille Castiglioni named his light sculpture after the botanical name of the dandelion, Traxacum. Like the blowball, which sends its seeds reminiscent of flight umbrellas out into the world in a breeze, the Taraxacum 88 C/W ceiling light directs its light flashes out and illuminates its surrounding. The viewer does not succumb to the special charm of the Taraxacum 88 C/W lamp only when it lights up. Even the sheer form embodies elegance, lightness and luxury. This applies both to the Taraxacum 88 C/W wall lamp and especially to the pendant luminaires, Taraxacum 88 S1 and Taraxacum 88 S2.

But the Taraxacum 88 C/W wall lamp is not only visually convincing. The construction is as simple as it is ingenious. Because, parts made of polished aluminium in the form of triangles form the heart of the Taraxacum 88 C/W, the lamp corpus. The triangles are mechanically held together by metal rods. The wall lamp weighs 2.3 kilograms and the lamp body is equipped with 15 Globe lamps, which arrange themselves all around and underline the plastic shape. The Globe bulbs are equipped with LED technology and are sold separately at TAGWERC Design STORE.

The special design, coupled with sophisticated technology, make the Taraxacum 88 C/W wall and ceiling lamp from Flos the ideal, light-giving companion. On the wall or ceiling, in the stairway, in the hallway, foyer, dressing room or bedroom, in a living or working space – the Taraxacum 88 C/W can be used in many ways and is ideal as a light accent or light sculpture. At TAGWERC, the official partner of manufacturer Flos, you will receive the Taraxacum 88 lighting series in all available versions as well as spare parts and lamps. As a highlight at home or in a professional ambience – Flos Taraxacum 88 C/W from the TAGWERC Design STORE guarantees the perfect accent for an exclusive ambience.
