It_s a juicy bunch of grapes, Nick Mason_s drums from Pink Floyd, the constellation of Perseus...there are so many examples that could be used to describe the Tam Tam, a new perception in the world of lamps, which extols repetitiveness by focusing on the archetypal lampshade: a number of light sources pointed in different directions, geometrically arranged to invoke a feeling of organized chaos.
The Tam Tam consists of a large central shade (ќ 20_) in lacquered aluminium, to which are attached various satellite shades (ќ 14_), which can be rotated through 360§ by means of a swivel mechanism. An opalescent, methacrylate diffuser over the open end softens the light.
Tam Tam is available as a suspension lamp in two sizes: a regular size with either 3 or 5 satellite shades and a mini size with 3 satellite shades. Each shade can be personalised in any of the following colours: black, white, orange, brown, green or sand.
The Tam Tam is suitable for any space. Using more than one, the sets of shades with their different positions can be used to create vast, multi-coloured ceilings, each one different from any other.
