I would like to introduce Phillip Starck's Table gun produced by flos now. It have passed about 10 years since first publication. I am thinking it is one of the best 2000s light fixture nowadays. There is a series of floor lamp,table lamp, bed side lamp, This one is Table Gun lamp that has AK47 as pole. Since it is not famous story about this lamp, the hottest selling product in the world is Gun.This fact means very sad,ironical situation for product designer. He entrusts this truth to lamp. This prototype were exhibited by baleful number 13 quantities at salone in 2005. As special edition that uses gold leaf instead of spray paint, with signature by Starck. You can see the same edition at the auction ;NIGO only lives twice as follows. Hummer price was very high.I think it verify the value of this work.
Pendant lamps by dutch designer Pepe Heykoop. These lamps are made of goat’s leather. it is really unusual material for lighting fixture, has a soft feel. These products are made by Tiny Miracles Foundation established By Pepe in India. The aim is to make women in underclasses get jobs, skills, and money for the work. Finally to change poor to middle-class. In the begging, foundation produces four kinds of leatherlamp shades, and later, produces Matka vase made of leather waste brought from the process of making leather lampshades. I recognize that social work like this is in a part of design, one of the expression of the designer. His point of view is very design feelings of 2010S. Also, foundation produces Paper Vase Cover that is a cover with using used wine bottle for flower vase. You can take it at Balck and white yokohama
