Technical and Product Description

The GUNS LOUNGE floor lamp, first designed in 2005, is part of the very poignant Guns Collection by Philippe Starck. 20% of sales from the Guns Collection is donated to Frères des Hommes, a charitable organization dedicated to abolishing poverty around the world.

The body of the GUNS LOUNGE floor lamp is made from die-cast aluminum with an overmolded polymer coating. It is available in a combination of polished 18K gold with a shade in matte black and gold silkscreen on the inside or chrome finish with white shade and silver silkscreen on the inside. The shade is made from plasticized paper. There is a 0-100% black dimmer fitted on the black fabric covered bipolar power cord. The Guns Lounge floor lamp uses a medium frosted incandescent bulb providing direct reading and ambient lighting.

Inspiration Behind the Design:

Philippe Starck said "Why doesn't furniture show that everything is a political choice? I am a designer and design is my only weapon, so I use it to speak about what I think is important." He also explains:

"The gold of the weapons represents the collusion between money and war.

The Table Gun symbolizes the East

Bed Side Gun symbolizes Europe

Lounge Gun stands for the West

The black shade signifies death

The crosses on the inside are to remind us of our dead ones."
