A lamp as original as it is flexible. Tatu is a lamp-object inspired by the public intimacy offered by aeroplane reading lights, intended for those moments of private reading or for activities which require a highly concentrated light.
Its mechanical body, like a compact flexo lamp, is divided into three sections that allow each part to rotate to adapt its use to a shelf, the office, the workplace, the library, the dining room, the bedside table or even as a wall lamp (the necessary fixings are included).
For the re-edition of this lamp, the lighting features have been enhanced with the incorporation of LED technology as well as the ability to adjust the beam of light with a simple movement. In addition, the dimmer on the base allows the intensity of the light to be controlled. Tatu alludes to a period of economic growth and expressive formal freedoms.
