A luminous sphere seems almost suspended in time and space. A metal structure seduces the gaze with its striking simplicity and the boldness of its construction. The extroverted Dana by Jean-Pierre Garrault and Henri Delord fits perfectly into the constant search for timeless pieces carried out by Tacchini: a lamp with a strong personality. Born from free creative thought and full of the artistry of the 70s, rediscovered by Tacchini to leave an unmistakable mark in any room. Dana’s idea was born in 1970 during a trip to Japan, when the designers decided to climb Mount Fujiyama and one evening, during a stop in a traditional Japanese inn, they were lucky enough to see the full moon rise and pass over the top of the mountain: hence the intuition to create a lamp with large luminous spheres that seem to rise towards the sky. The project then comes to life following a working method inspired by the “Meccano” which decrees its originality, a systematic search to reduce technical solutions to a few elements that allow multiple solutions. Today, re-edited in agreement with the two designers, Dana is presented in a floor-to-ceiling version with a tubular structure in chromed metal and a sphere of light in composite material.

Jean-Pierre Garrault/Henri Delord

Jean-Pierre Garrault and Henri Delord formed a close-knit creative duo in the 70s. They were born graphic designers, with a particular taste for lines that underline an architecture or an object and a love for bright colours which is reflected in almost all of their productions. Their goal is to create an object perfectly suited to its function, a purpose that they carry forward in all aspects of the home – from furnishings to coverings, from lighting to interior architecture – and which they also achieve by rethinking the means of production most suited to the subjects they wish to deal with. This, according to them, is what true design requires: conceiving everything to obtain the perfect finished product: elegant, balanced and iconic.
