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 École 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 François 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 cocoon™, 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 was produced in 1998, followed by the Miss Sissi lamp, Romeo Moon, and Archimoon series.

very poor quality
ryan , more than a month ago.
I have been eyeing this lamp for a while. I finally ordered it. It arrived with many holes in the foil. Looked used and beat up like it was returned and they just tried to pawn it back off on me. Very disappointed. Same thing happened with another flos lamp I bought a couple years ago, it came with hundreds of tiny scratches all over the base. I am very reluctant to ever buy another Flos product again. I do like the designs but the quality is horrible and very cheaply made.

Not a good choice
Barbara, more than a month ago.
When the foil shade arrived I could see that is is so delicate it has lost some of the metallic.
The instructions are more warnings about the heat that the lamp generates -‘it gets very hot very fast’ ‘do not touch’
It’s a stylish piece-but Very Very lightweight and actually feels like a dangerous purchase.
I would return it but opened it too late to do so.
At least I made the purchase during a sale.
Probably will donate!
Something so stunning should be functional I would think!
