A formidable piece of lighting design that can also grace any space as a streamlined sculptural object when not illuminated, Taco de Luz Grande is a fully custom-designed studio edition by Studio Aristotelis Barakos. A celebration of craftsmanship and our Studio’s hands-on approach to applied creativity, this sophisticated pendant light is completely handmade in Greece, from its impressive hand-hammered bronze reflector sheet to the tubular light source inside it.
This is a new addition to the Taco de Luz lighting collection, which takes its fanciful name from its particular shape: an oval metal sheet that gently embraces and partly conceals the light source within. The main design idea is the contrast between the sleek tubular lightbulb and the handmade texture of the hammered metal that contains it, which creates a balanced interplay between smooth and indented surfaces, as well as linear and curved formal elements.
Taco de Luz Grande takes this concept to a new scale and allows top-down illumination as an elegant pendant light. Its minimalist form commands attention whilst retaining a refined profile, and the hand-hammered reflector sheet allows for very soft and wide diffusion. The object’s dynamic curvature creates an interesting sense of movement and lightness, as if floating in space. This pendant light is ideal for dining tables and restaurants, as well as receptions, work desks and other scenarios that call for concentrated, soft illumination without visual distractions.
Taco de Luz Grande features a fully dimmable LED tube bulb and is available in two finishes: brushed bronze and black patinated brass.
