Flos Tatou S2


The Tatou suspension light is part of a series of lights designed by Patricia Urquiola for Flos. The shade is inspired by ancient Japanese armour and emulates their metal buckles which are held together with woven tapes. This idea was simplified into overlapping perforated bands which, though injection moulded, still retain a sense of Japanese provenance and artisanship. Despite this the name given to the light series comes from a different type of armour as Tatou is the French word for armadillo. There is no denying that the finished light shares certain similarities with this extraordinary creature, in the diamond pattern and in the way the bands link together so that the shade can give protection from direct glare whilst at the same time producing a harmonious play of light and shadow. The suspension light comes in two sizes the S1 and the S2 and in three colours, black, white and ochre and all are perfect for kitchens and living areas. There are also table and floor versions available in all three colours.
