FLOS Taraxacum 88 Pendant Light by Achille Castiglioni

About

Based on the original Taraxacum created in 1960, the Taraxacum 88 reflects the iconic design’s 1988 update and includes a mixture of deep incandescent lighting and cool, polished aluminum triangles. Designed by master Achille Castiglioni, this decorative hanging light fixture features 20 pressed and polished aluminum equilateral triangles fitted with electrical sockets. The sockets are filled with 60 clear 25-watt globe lamps, invoking the bloom of a dandelion. The suspension fixture provides direct and reflected incandescent light. The finish is transparent. Inspiration behind the design: An update on the famous 1960s creation by the Castiglioni brothers, Achille Castiglioni designed this piece for “community areas, lobbies and rooms that need a lot of light for special occasions,” without sacrificing style and beauty. This item is compatible only in the United States and Canada. For customers located outside of these regions, please inquire for availability in your area.

About Flos (Manufacturer)

Founded by Sergio Gandini in 1962 in Merano Italy, FLOS has revolutionized the art of lighting by honoring tradition while embracing innovation.


FLOS is, above all else, about craftmanship, and as a result the brand has cultivated long and successful partnerships with some of the world’s most renowned lighting artists. Working with icons such as the Castiglioni Brothers , Tobia Scarpa, Philippe Starck and Antonio Citterio, among others, FLOS has earned the respect of the industry while growing its offerings to include residential, commercial, and custom-made concept-based products.


An award winning institution in its own right, FLOS has earned worldwide recognition as the leader in the field.


Today, Sergio’s grandson Piero Gandini sits at the helm, holding fast to the values and ideas established by his grandfather while moving confidently into the future.

About The Maker

For over 50 years, FLOS has sought to illuminate the human experience by offering finely crafted pieces by the world’s most beloved artists. We do it by remaining true to our core values. We believe that light is more than just a basic need, it is a living substance that helps us express and explore new ideas and emotions. It makes sense of the past, it brightens our present, and it lends brilliance to the future. We align ourselves with the masters of design. From legends to new talents, we are proud to work with artists who are tuned into cultural conversation, who look to better their work by making it sustainable and beautiful, and who demand nothing less than excellence. We believe that provocation is a necessary element of evolution. We embrace the revolutionary spirits of our designers—we encourage them to seek out new poetic notions of functionality while staying ahead of the latest technological advancements. We believe in experimentation. It is how we have discovered the most influential and iconic elements of our work. No effort is wasted. We trust our intuition. We have confidence in our work and the work of our partners. We have fun. We offer pieces that are serious about their sense of playfulness and irony. We know our place. FLOS stands at the meeting point of art and design, of craftsmanship and industry, of limited editions and large scale manufacturing, and of the individual and the collective imagination. It is a unique space, and it is where we work best.
