The Castiglioni brothers often created designs that challenged our perspective, and the Taccia, which gives the illusion of an upside-down hanging lamp, is an inspired example of that. Designed by the famed duo in 1962, the Taccia has a concave spun-aluminum reflector with a matte white finish. Its light can be adjusted by positioning the blown glass diffuser as necessary. Its base is made of extruded aluminum.
This new, smaller version is approximately half the size of the original design created in 1962. It has a painted aluminum reflector that is gloss white on the inside and matte white on the outside. The diffuser is transparent blown glass and can change direction. The base is nickel-plated ABS and PC (polycarbonate). It features an electric cable that measures 190-centimeters and includes a dimmer switch on the cord. Light adjustment can be customized between 10-100%.
