Petit TatuAndré Ricard
Tatu, Spanish for armadillo, is a friendly mammal with a shell on its back that protects it when it rolls up into a ball. André Ricard had the idea for Tatu during a transoceanic flight; while reading about Argentinean wildlife, he observed that the light above his seat did not disturb his sleeping wife who was sitting next to him.
To comemorate the 90th birthday of André Ricard, a key figure in the history of industrial design in Spain, we present Petit Tatu, a smaller, wall-mounted version of the lamp. Like its desktop equivalent, this wall light’s ability to fully rotate and its easy adjustability —of both light intensity and spot size—will delight users.
On its own or as part of a series, in white or red, Petit Tatu is perfect for corridors and to direct light wherever it is needed.
