The Tatou collection was created by the Spanish star designer Patricia Urquiola for the manufacturer Flos and includes two differently sized suspension lamps as well as a floor lamptable lamp and a table lamp.
As versatile and multifaceted as the sources of inspiration Flos presents their selection: For the last 50 years Flos stands for innovative lighting concepts, excellent craftsmanship and high-quality lighting. The newest highlight, making design hearts beat higher, is the Tatou collection. The collection is playful and detailed, characteristics fitting for Patricia Urquiola’s designs, which have always brought design and poetry together. The Tatou collection was first presented at the London Design Festival in the year 2012, the year Flos celebrated their 50th anniversary.
For half a century Flos has represented modern and exclusive lighting and received awards for numerous products, some lamps even advanced to the status of design classic over the years, like the Arco floor lamp. Maybe the Tatou collection by Flos will develop similarly.
Tatou ist he French word for the armadillo – and you can see at first glance that designer Patricia Urquiola was inspired by this droll animal. “A little companion for at home” – yes, that’s exactly how we feel about Tatou. Another inspiration: The metal buckles of Japanese armour, which fascinates Patricia Urquiola and radiate dynamics, power and flexibility at the same time.
The lamps of the Tatou collection are manufactured of polycarbonate. Two lampshades create the diffused, atmospheric light. The outer shade with a perforated surface in a 3D-honeycomb look throws interesting lighting effects onto the ceiling and walls. The inner shade made of acrylic glass protects the light source on the one hand and on the other acts like an oversized light bulb.
The Tatou collection’s lamps by Flos are available in three different colour versions: In white, black, and bronze. You have the choice between the Tatou T1 table lamp, the Tatou suspension lamp in two sizes, as well as the Tatou F floor lamp. Modern and at the same time with a rustic flair the Tatou collection by Flos fits into many different areas, private as well as public. In the living room, the bedroom, above a dining table or in a café or restaurant – the Tatou collection looks great anywhere!
