by Philippe Starck
for Flos

The Romeo Moon table lamp is a part of the Romeo collec­tion that focuses on iconic, classic shapes to give them a new life while main­tain­ing a time­less look. Designed by artist Philippe Starck, the shade is made of pressed clear glass, and there is an acid-etched pressed borosil­i­cate glass inter­nal diffuser. The steel stem is painted grey, and the base and yoke are die-cast aluminum. The diffuser support is injec­tion-molded trans­par­ent poly­car­bon­ate. A 0% to 100% dimmer switch is located on cord.

Philippe Starck

France (1949)

Philippe Starck has a mission and a vision: creation, whatever shape it takes, must make life better for the largest number of people possible. Starck believes this highly poetic, political, rebellious, benevolent, pragmatic and subversive duty must be borne by all and he resumes it with the humor that has accompanied his approach since the earliest days. Despite his thousands of projects - completed or in the making - he remains committed to never forgetting the essential.

Starck possesses an anticipatory concern for environmental implications. His profound comprehension of contemporary mutations, his enthusiasm for imagining new lifestyles, his determination to change the world, his devotion to a positive reduction, his love of ideas, his desire to defend the intelligence of usefulness - and the usefulness of intelligence - have accompanied one iconic creation after the other. His technological miracles are vectors of democratic ecology, focused on action and a respect for the future of both humans and nature. Predicting the phenomena of convergence and dematerialization, Philippe Starck has always devised objects that demand the most from the least.

Philippe Starck is all of the above, but above all, he is a man of honesty, in the purest tradition of the Renaissance artists.
