"When the iPad, a source of information, becomes a source of light". -Philippe Starck

It was only a matter of time before Philippe Starck turned his mind to such a popular, desirable and useful object as the iPad. The resulting creation is a lamp that satisfies our daily need for information, entertainment and always-on connectivity. D'E-Light has a radical, extremely functional design, with USB socket above the light diffuser for an iPod, iPhone or iPad.

D'E-Light is an LED, energy-efficient task lamp with charging dock for iPhone, iPad or iPod. The top is offered in aluminium, stem in extruded aluminium, base in zamak to increase stability and it is available either chrome-plated or matt black (30-pin connector only). It features an optical on/off switch with Soft Touch technology and light flow adjustment to 2 intensities (100% - 50% - 0%).

As one of the best-known contemporary designers in the world, Philippe Starck has placed honesty and integrity at the core of his designs producing quality products with longevity & durability. He seems to understand, better than others our dreams, our desires, our needs, and our responsibility to the future, as well as the overriding need to respect his fellow citizens by making his work a political and civic act.

Philippe Starck

Paris-born Philippe Patrick Starck (b. 1949) has a wide range of design, but is very well known for his consumer goods and interiors. He was educated in Paris at the ╔cole Camondo and founded his first design firm, which specialized in inflatable objects, in 1968. The next year, he became art director of his firm along with Pierre Cardin. He has worked both independently as an interior designer and as a product designer since 1975. After designing the private apartment interiors for French President Franšois Mitterrand in 1982, his career began to climb significantly. In 1986 he joined Domus Academy Department of Design as an associate lecturer. Two of Starck's famous designs include stylized toothbrushes (1989) and a sleek juicer dubbed the Juicy Salif created for Alessi in 1990. The Juicy Salif has become an affordable and popular cult item.
The furniture manufacturers and entrepreneurs Dino Gavina and Cesare Cassina founded Flos which became one of the leading Italian light manufacturers in the second half of the 20th century. Its origins lay in the energy of Arturo Eisenkeil who, in 1959, was seeking to find applications for a new, plastic-based material that he was importing to Italy from the United States. Called Ĺcocoonĺ, it was a spray-on plastic coating that Gavina and Cassina recognized as having potential for lighting design. From the outset, Flos established its reputation through its innovative lighting designs from Achille Castiglioni. The collaboration with Achille Castiglioni continued through the '90s, and in 1992 he introduced the "family of products" concept to the market with the Brera series. At the same time, Flos continued to scout for emerging talent at an international level. The first Philippe Starck lamp, ┬rÓ, was produced in 1998, followed by the Miss Sissi lamp, Romeo Moon, and Archimoon series.
