Who designed Gun Lamp Collection?

The Flos Bedside Gun Lamp was designed by Philippe Starck for Flos (2005), the leading Italian modern lighting brand. Inspired to do just that, Philippe 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.”
