We have highlighted some pretty spectacular lights over the months and years, but I don’t think we’ve featured anything quite so ostentatious as the Flos Taraxacum 88 suspension light.

Designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1988 (but looking more like a fitting from 1968), the Flos Taraxacum 88 is based around a structure consisting of 20 pressed and polished aluminium triangles and holding 60 (yes 60!) Globolux lamps to brighten up any size of room. I’m getting a headache just thinking about it!

Finishing things off is a steel ceiling fitting and rose, all of which will set you back around £1,400. And just possibly the same in electricity each year.
