Flos Taraxacum 88


Aluminum + Glass Light Bulbs = Perfection.

Anatomy of a classic: fall in love with the fabulous Taraxacum 88 lamp. Designed by the grandmaster of Italian design, Achille Castiglioni, for Flos in 1988. Achille Castiglioni named it the Taraxacum which is the Latin name for the Dandelion flower. When the Taraxacum flower matures into a globe of fine filaments it closely resembles this awe-inspring lamp.

Sure, this incandescent beauty burns plenty of electricity, but its grand appearance puts every CFL lamp to shame. An Italian design classic for those with exceptional taste, the radiant Taraxacum 88 is a masterpiece of Italian lighting design.
