Tam Tam. Designed by Fabien Dumas. Manufactured by Marset.
The Tam Tam Gathers Lamp Shades Into a Downward Bundle of Subtle Beauty
"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," continues Marset. Thanks to the design that bunches together nicely with the pull of the Earth's gravity into the central, large 50 cm diameter lamp shade, the Tam Tam is a high end lamp made by the Barcelona-based lighting design company that diffuses light ever so gently out from the central shade and satellite shades attached to it.
Made out of custom-picked, colorfully-lacquered aluminum in black, white, orange, tobacco (brown), green or gray, the Tam Tam's satellite lampshades come in a smaller, 35 cm diameter, and can be added to the central shade as a trio or quintet. Each satellite shade can be rotated 360º by way of a swivel mechanism, allowing you to pick your preference, highlighting various areas of a room with the opalescent, methacrylate diffusers that bring out a warm white glow from deep inside each bundt cake pan or balloon. To match the Tam Tam suspension light, Dumas also created a handy Tam Tam sconce for wall applications.
Created for use in bedrooms, dining rooms, kitchens, living rooms or the like, the versatile structure and color combination of the Tam Tam suspension light by Marset fit into a simple to elaborate living space of any size or caliber.
