"A magic bookcase where the books take flight towards the light" -Phillipe Starck

Only a visionary mind like Philippe Starck's could imagine a floor lamp like Biblioteque Nationale. The French designer, like a contemporary wizard with the power to animate objects, imagines a fairy tale bookcase where the books pirouette and take flight towards the light. This lamp, without sacrificing formal rigor and simplicity, which are constant features in Starck's work, perfectly expresses the tastes and needs of everyday lives comprising multi-function, dynamic objects.

Starck created small shelves on the main stem for books and other articles. He has also extended its functions with a USB connector to recharge popular smartphones. Having it near us facilitates our daily habits of reading, making telephone calls or relaxing. A surreal addition to settings, Bibliotheque Nationale
seems to fulfill our simplest but most fundamental desires, with that magic that is often a feature of Starck's creations.

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.

Bibliotheque Nationale floor lamp offers diffused light and features a chrome-plated base & stem with a plastic or cloth shade and moveable steel shelves. Resistive dimmer wired on cord for 0-100% light adjustment.
