Designed by Philippee Starck, 2005
Made in Italy by Flos
Designed in 2005, this provocative table lamp is part of the artist’s Guns Collection, making a statement while doing good. “Design is my weapon,” says Philippe Starck, who donates 20% of the collection’s sales to Frères des Hommes, a charitable organization dedicated to abolishing poverty worldwide.
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."
Switching: Electronic dimmer wired on cord for 0-100% light adjustment.
