Taraxacum 88 by Flos Lighting. The Flos Taraxacum 88 Suspension Light was designed by Achille Castiglioni. In 1988 Achille Castiglioni, perhaps the most famed Italian designer of all time, released an updated edition of his original Taraxacum Lamp giving it the added 88 name for the year in which he designed it. Achille Castiglioni named this brilliant pendant light fixture the Taraxacum which is the Latin name for the Dandelion flower. When the ethereal Taraxacum flower matures into a globe of fine filaments it closely resembles this awe-inspring lamp. The intriguing Taraxacum 88 is perhaps the most significant lamp in Achille Castiglioni's design oeuvre. From the moment it was released, Taraxacum 88 was destined to become a design classic. The Taraxacum 88, first released in 1988, was an international hit, winning plaudits from architects, interior designers and critics alike for its perfect fusion between form and function. Featured at New York's Museum of Modern Art as well as numerous other museum collections. Every particular element Taraxacum 88 compels serious attention. Its exceptional multi-faceted structure is composed of 20 pressed and polished aluminum triangles which create both direct- and reflected light. The Taraxacum 88 uses a total of 60 incandescent light bulbs which can be dimmed to a soft glow with a wall dimmer (not included). A beautiful sight to behold, especially at night! Taraxacum 88 is generously sized making it a commanding presence in both residential and commercial interiors. A flawlessly crafted Italian design classic!
