The Tatou family of lights by Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola combines modern materials and technologies with traditional basket weaving aesthetic. French for “armadillo,” Tatou reflects the pattern of the animal’s plated hide.

The moulded polycarbonate lights come in three styles – pendant, floor and table. Urquiola chose polycarbonate for the perforated shades for its light-weight, strength and its abilty to be used with a three-dimensional mould. The three colours – white, ochre-grey and black – were specifically chosen for the different lighting effects they create. The floor and table models have painted metal stems and bases.

Available from Euroluce.
