Drawing its inspiration from an eclectic variety of sources -a juicy bunch of grapes, Nick Mason's drums from Pink Floyd, and the constellation of Perseus- the design of the Tam Tam Collection extols repetitiveness by focusing on lampshades pointed in different directions.
Evoking a feeling of organized chaos, The Tam Tam 3 consists of a large central shade and three attached satellite shades that can be rotated 360° by means of a swivel mechanism. Opalescent, methacrylate diffusers over the open end of the shades soften and diffuse the light. Each of the four shades are offered in black, white, orange, brown, green, and sand.

Through the application of technical precision and creativity, Marset constantly aims to discover new functions to provide other uses for their long
lasting lamps. This constant quest for new directions, combined with their curiosity and ability to envision the shape of things to come, has led to the
pieces in their collection.
This light looks great and is well-made. However, even with 9 bulbs, 60W max per bulb doesn't make for a very bright light. Using compact fluorescent bulbs may help, but then the light would not be dimmable. Overall good as a moody/background light, but not for task-level brightness.
