Created by Patricia Urquiola for Flos, Tatou is a collection of lights inspired by classic antique Japanese armour. The perforated sections of the protective shade allows light to cast through each hole producing a wonderful play on light and shadow. Tatou is made up of four identical elements which are all interwoven to form a unified dome shape which diffuses light both up and down.
