Tatou lamp collection by Patricia Urquiola for Flos

October 26th, 2012 by retail design blog

Lighting brand Flos presents a new family of lamps designed by Patricia Urquiola on the occasion of the 2012 London Design Festival. Taking its name from the French word for ‘Armadillo’, the ‘Tatou’ series draws its influences from that of armour, particularly that of classic antique Japan, offering dynamism, lightness and flexibility.

The idea behind the luminaire is made-up of four identical elements, each one interwoven to form a unified dome which diffuses direct light either upwards or downwards, as well as allowing light to pass through as a result of its perforated shell. Available in a floor, table and suspension models, ‘Tatou’ is offered in two different sizes and three finishes: white, black or plum.
