New at Lumens: TamTam by Fabien Dumas

Tam Tam Suspension by Marset

“Obvious and simple” functionality is at the heart of Fabien Dumas’ TamTam design for Marset, but don’t confuse “simple” with “simplistic.” Inspired by kids playing bongos in the park near his Berlin flat, Dumas worked closely with the team at Marset to develop this entirely unique and totally versatile design. A light with a sense of movement (each “drum” turns 360° to point light in any direction), it also comes a variety of color and size options. Dumas’ family relocated frequently while he was growing up, from Martinique to the French Riviera to Tahiti, and so his design sensibility has evolved to reflect constant movement, sense of possibility and a globally conscious aesthetic.
