FLOS has unveiled the new version of the iconic Taccia table lamp, designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. A seemingly simple adjustment to Taccia, this new product actually reverts back to and accomplishes the art of the original 1958 design intention.
Taccia LED 2016's perfect bowl shape was created using an advanced molding technique, allowing it to maintain a uniform surface both inside and out. Thanks to the use of an LED light source, FLOS has been able to recover the original vision of the Castiglioni brothers: a plastic bowl reflector. This vision in 1958 was discarded - and changed to use a more expensive, heavier glass instead, because the heat emitted by the incandescent light source at the time deformed the plastic material.
Taccia LED 2016 will launch in September and will be available in either black or anodized silver finishes.
