The subtle difference

Light + Building recently closed its doors to the public in Frankfurt/Main. Which topics are people still talking about? Here is Stylepark’s retrospective overview of the fair.
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 (50cm Ø) in lacquered aluminium, to which are attached various satellite shades (35cm Ø), which can be rotated through 360º 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 three or five satellite shades and a mini size with three shades. A wall lamp version with one or two shades completes the collection. Each shade can be personalised in any of the following colours: black, white, orange, brown, green or grey.
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.
