Description

Santa & Cole's Petit Tatu wall lamp is a smaller, wall-mounted version of the Tatu table lamp, which plays an iconic role in the Spanish pop culture of the 1970s. Petit Tatu was introduced in 2019 to commemorate designer André Ricard’s 90th birthday. Embodying a fascinating fusion of object and lamp, Petit Tatu consists of a fixed base as well as an outer section, which can be rotated to suit all your lighting needs. With a name translating to armadillo, the resemblance is uncanny: much like the mammal that can roll up into a ball, the Petit Tatu wall lamp can flex to spread light where you desire.

Spanish designer André Ricard found inspiration for Tatu in the reading light above his head on a long-distance flight: thanks to its concentrated beam, Ricard could continue reading without waking up his sleeping spouse. Petit Tatu is equipped with modern LED technology, allowing you to adjust the width of the beam from narrow to wide.
