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 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.
