Designed by Achille Castiglioni, 1988
Aluminum, steel, glass light bulbs
Made in Italy by Flos
Taraxacum '88 is composed from a single basic element, a polished aluminum equilateral triangle fitted with electrical sockets. A number of these are hinged together to form an icosahedron, the Platonic form closest to a sphere. The sockets are filled with 60 transparent 25 watt Globolux light bulbs which are inlcuded.
Castiglioni said of Taraxacum '88: "It is a bit of a blow to energy-saving but a big chandelier is meant for community areas, lobbies and rooms that need a lot of light for special occasions and so it also needs to be decorative."
