Designed by Philippe Starck, 2005
Made in Italy by Flos
This sleek and edgy table lamp is part of the artist’s Guns Collection, making a statement while doing good. “Design is my weapon,” says Starck, who donates 20% of the collection’s sales to Frères des Hommes, a charitable organization dedicated to abolishing poverty around the world.
Inspiration behind the design: “Why doesn't furniture show that everything is a political choice?” asks designer Philippe Starck. Inspired to do just that, Starck created the Guns Collection to make a powerful statement. "The gold of the weapons represents the collusion between money and war. The Table Gun symbolizes the East, the Bed Side Gun symbolizes Europe, and the Lounge Gun represents the West. The black shade signifies death, and the crosses on the inside are to remind us of those who have passed."
