Design by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, 1960. The Taraxacum Cocoon, a spray-on synthetic resin fibre developed in the US that creates a cocoon-like wrap, was discovered for use in luminaire manufacture in the sixties by Flos. In 1960, Flos began its successful relationship with legendary designers Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. The Taraxacum was designed within the year; the 'Cocoon' cover is sprayed directly onto the internal powder-coated steel fibre frame of the lampshade, thus creating the structural shape.
The final spray-on coating protects the Cocoon and guarantees its stability. From afar, the resulting, exquisitely organic shape looks like a giant seed pod encased within a cocoon. The Taraxacum emits a diffused light. The Cocoon collection helped to establish Flos once and for all as a genuine innovator in the field of lighting manufacture.
Most of our pendant and wall lamps are 2-wire Lighting Systems. This is the most common lighting system in the world. If you do require a 3 wire system, you do need to ask your installation company to replace the wire for you. Installation of this lamp should be performed by a registered electrician, the SofaSale delivery team is not certified and can not perform any installation. Please note this 3rd party installation charge is not included in our sales price.
