Marset shakes up its Tam Tam in a double take on its essential floor lamp with 2 shades attached to the central pole that can each rotate 360 degrees. Berlin designer Fabien Dumas conceived the tubular, black-lacquered metal structure so its light can be aimed in any direction, and also to accommodate long or narrow spaces. Each shade is fitted with an opalescent diffuser to soften the illumination and the duo is available in black, off-white or a raft of pop colors.

“Marset is more than lamps: We take care of light in its different nuances and effects, to create atmospheres with character, helping to improve people’s quality of life,” declares the Barcelona-based company. Marset’s dual preoccupation with both crisp contemporary design and the more elusive ambiance of lighting has firmly fixed the firm on the design world’s cutting-edge radar. A series of attention-grabbing and innovative fixtures account for the recent revitalization of the brand, though Marset has actually been around since the 1940s.
A family business, Marset was originally a foundry, not a lighting company. It segued into lighting design when Francisco Marset formally established Marset Illuminacion in 1965. Decades devoted to metalwork easily translated to the contemporary lighting industry, with a dexterity of materials available to create unexpected, atmospheric lighting effects. Not to mention the influence of its Barcelona home, a city renowned for architecture, design and visual inspiration.
