Super­ar­chi­moon Floor Lamp

c. 2000

by Philippe Starck
for Flos

Large and magnif­i­cent, Super­ar­chi­moon Floor Lamp provides direct and diffused light for grand envi­ron­ments. Designer Philippe Starck crafted Super­ar­chi­moon and the outdoor version of Super­ar­chi­moon in 2000, and this floor lamp still stands the test of time. 

The exter­nal diffuser is of pleated cloth while the inter­nal diffuser is made of acid-etched, hand-blown glass. The diffuser support is sand­cast aluminum, and the gray-painted assem­bly is composed of tubular aluminum arms and tie rods, a stain­less steel spring, and die-cast aluminum joints. The sand-cast aluminum base features six lead coun­ter­weights and a painted gray spun-aluminum base cover. The polar­ized power cord is covered with silver fabric, and it features a 0%-100% dimmer.

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.
