Table lamp Taccia by Achille Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for FLOS
Table lamp Taccia designed by Achille Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1962 for FLOS. The table lamp provides indirect and reflected light. The diffuser of this Taccia is made of glass and is adjustable.
This design was seen as the Mercedes among lamps; the symbol of success. The base in the shape of a classic column may have something to do with this. However, with their design of the Taccia, the famous design brothers were not aiming for prestige. They were simply looking for a way to keep the foot cool.
