"Tatou began life as a luminaire that crosses a traditional dome style with a surface that is interpreted through a creative language to screen and let the light filter through from inside.‎ The first prototypes were suspension models, but they immediately bred into a family.‎ Development in various sizes and situations in the domestic environment came naturally.‎ The process began by looking for different ways to reconstruct membranes, conceived like Japanese armour: a series of metal buckles cleverly united by tapes with a powerful emotional value.‎ There was then a process of simplification into overlapping, perforated, vertical bands riveted together.‎ We translated the design into a mass production process by transitioning to injection moulding.‎ The overlapping of these bands has been crystallised in three-dimensional leather, a variable section mould and by the geometric pattern.‎ With Flos, the challenge was to obtain a mass produced product, while retaining strong artisan connotations.‎ Tatou is French for armadillo: the mammal famous for its structure made up of plates of bone covered with a protective layer of horn.‎ ‘Tatou’ has an emotional sound to it, which I think is consistent with the emotional function of this object.‎” Patricia Urquiola
