The Gun Lamp Collection by Philippe Starck for Flos

Buy the Gun Lamp Collection by Philippe Starck for Flos through Unica Home

The Gun lamp collection designed by Philippe Starck for Flos in 2005 was created by Starck as a response to the society that we live in today. Starck is a firm believer of love and peace and so in the gun collection Starck uses his position as a designer to get his political view across.

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 goes on to highlight what our society has come to.

Nowadays we kill – religiously, militarily, civilly,
indeed very civilly sometimes. We kill out of ambition,
out of greed, for the fun of it or of the show.
Republics turn bananas. Tyrant are our masters,
Designed, manufactured, sold, dreamed, purchased
and used, weapons are our new icons.
Our lives are only worth a bullet.
The Guns Collection is nothing but a sign
of the times.

The gold and silver of the weapons represents the collision between money and war. The Table Gun symbolizes the East, the Bed Side Gun symbolizes Europe, the Lounge Gun stands for the West. The black shade signifies death. The crosses on the inside are to remind us of our dead ones. Freaky stuff!! But cool! One thing’s for sure, these gun lamps are iconic. They are sexy pieces of art. I have seen these gun lamps at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills and they look amazing. Buy the Gun Lamps by Philippe Starck for Flos through Unica Home.

The gold version of the gun lounge lamp is equally as cool, however, it has a warmer presence and stands out more.

Bedside Gun Lamp in Chrome

By through Unica Home $948

The silver bedside gun lamp is a more affordable version of the gun lamp, and just because it’s called the bedside gun lamp, does not mean that you can’t show off this baby in the rest of the house. I would definitely have this on display!

The gold version of the bedside gun lamp has more of a James Bonds feel to it. It’s more flashy. I prefer the chrome, its got more of an understated sexiness to it.

Table Gun Lamp in Gold also available in Chrome

By through Unica Home $1,756

The gold gun table lamp looks more like a riffle than a gun. I prefer the handgun bedside lamp, the shape is more classic.
