The Gun collection by Philippe Starck is an exemplary series of lamps consisting of table and floor models. The 'gun' is made of a die cast aluminum with injection-molded polymer overprint and a polished 18K gold-plated finish. The fitting is offered with a matte black diffuser with a silk-screened gold printing on the inside.
The lamp series may seem obtrusive and even 'gaudy' to some but it has much greater meaning than may originally meet the eye.
What you may not know is that 20% off sales from the Gun Collection is donated to charity by Flos. The charity, Frères des Hommes is an organization dedicated to abolishing poverty around the world.
