The Flos Taraxacum 88 pendant lamp designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1988 is an icon in lighting design.
It is a chandelier conceived as an interaction of identical elements placed on the same base. The base is formed by equilateral triangles, interconnected to obtain the closest Platonic shape to a sphere: the icosahedron, a solid formed by 20 faces of equilateral triangles.
The frame is the skeleton and support of the lamps connected to it, hiding the electrical cables from view.
The hanging Taraxacum 88 is offered in two different icosahedron sizes depending on how many lamps the single triangular module can hold: 6 lamps or, in the larger version, 10 lamps for a total of 200 lamps.
The intention was to create a lamp that would replace the classic ornamental chandelier, keeping the same lighting characteristics, but making it more uniform and simple from a decorative point of view.
The 200 lamp version is designed to illuminate common areas, entrances and rooms that need lots of light.
Taraxacum 88 has 2 measures
S1 - 800mm diameter and 5500mm suspension cable
S2 - 1050mm diameter and 6000mm suspension cable
