Taccia Table Lamp
Originally Designed in 1958, Taccia's signature dramatic diffuser was initially made of transparent plastic. However in 1962, the product was revised by designers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni to include a more heat-resistant version in blown glass. In its current incarnation, the body is available in matt black, anodized silver, or bronze anodized aluminium.
Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni
The Italian architects and designer brothers Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002) and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni (1913-1968) are among the greatest names of modern Italian design. Both studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano (where they later worked as teachers) and their prolific output included many collaborations with major Italian manufacturers, such as Flos, Alessi, Kartell, Knoll and B&B Italia. Today, many of the brothers’ iconic designs are on display at museums and galleries around the world today, including the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and the MoMA in New York.
