Artemide Takku by Foster+Partners

Marking the start of the Milan Design Week 2021, Artemide has launched the latest addition to its range of innovative lighting solutions – an understated portable battery-powered lamp named Takku. The lamp can be used as an intimate source of light for the bedside or tabletop.

Takku’s versatility allows it to adapt to spatial layouts that change through time, be it the home-office, indoor/outdoor hospitality settings or a variety of dynamic spaces. Mike Holland, Head of Industrial Design, Foster + Partners, said: “The name Takku comes from the Japanese word for a pin or a tack. As well as inferring its shape, it also alludes to its inherent portability, like a pin used to temporarily fix notes to a surface. In terms of its engineering, the weighted base gives the lamp stability and tactile quality. We worked hard to optimize the light diffuser to distribute the light down the stem, while also creating a visible illuminated edge around the shade and express a volume of light.”

Showcasing its industrial roots, it has an extruded anodised aluminium stem containing a single LED and rechargeable power source that is optimized for disassembly. The light is reflected off the inside of a formed aluminium head containing an optimized diffuser that distributes the light evenly around the stem, creating an ethereal, floating aesthetic.

Engineered for precision, the weighted base gives the lamp stability and tactile quality. The light can be dimmed or brightened via a discreet button on the stem and can last up to 32 hours on a single charge. Made from low carbon recycled aluminium, Takku is available in a range of anodised colours and paint finishes and is suitable for indoor and outside use.
