Also offered in red and silver/clear polycarbonate versions.

Born in Paris in 1949, Philippe Starck is one of the most original designers and architects of the last three decades. Having designed furniture, hotels, mega-yachts, lighting and many others throughout his career, Starck has become a fixture in modern design. Not only does Starck create beautifully unconventional designs, he creates a finished product whose main purpose is to function well before anything else.
Philippe Starck has obtained many important acknowledgements, including the Grand Prix National de la Création industrielle and the Honor Award of the American Institute of Architects. In Starck's own words, "subversive, ethical, ecological, political, humorous... this is how I see my duty as a designer."See other lights/products from Philippe Starck
FLOS was founded in 1962. The very same year they began producing a number of lamps that were to become classics in Italian industrial design. These first lamps were Arco, Relemme, Toio and Taccia all designed by Achille and Piergiacomo Castiglioni. As a tangible proof of their timeless design and technical excellence, these lamps continue to be produced today.
It all started with cocoon . . .In 1959 Arturo Eisenkeil from Merano, an importer of cocoon — a spray-on plastic coating produced in the United States — was tracking down possible applications for this new material. He joined forces with Dino Gavina and Cesare Cassina and set up a company to produce lighting fixtures. This marked the beginning of the long-standing association in the area of design with the Castiglioni brothers and Tobia Scarpa. The first cocoon lamps ever created were the offspring of this collaboration: Viscontea, Taraxacum and Gatto by the Castiglioni brothers and Fantasma by Scarpa. FLOS moved from Merano to the province of Brescia in 1964: At first to Nave and then to the current premises in Bovezzo. Sergio Gandini became chairman of the company in 1965. In 1974, the company became the owner of Arteluce one of the key Italian companies in the industrial design sector. Gino Sarfatti, an industrialist and designer, is the founder of Arteluce. Several models designed by Sarfatti himself have been incorporated into the product range.
From the very outset, FLOS has been characterized by its high-quality approach to lamp design and production. Many of the numerous lamps designed for the company, first by Achille and Piergiacomo, are undoubtedly some of the best-known and most successful products of industrial design. They have won awards and historical critical accolades, and are included in all the most important collections and design museums around the world.
FLOS' production will continue to be imbued with various design trends that embody their attention to leading-edge research combined with highly-efficient production, sales and communications. In 2002, the company celebrated forty years production of designer lamps.

Stunningly and versatile.
This is the second Miss K lamp I have purchased, having the silver model at home (blends in well with all the mid-century modern furniture) and now the black at my partner's office. Very handsome piece (the lamp...), gets lots of compliments, fits well with the business atmosphere, but adds a lot sophisticated style. You cannot go wrong with this one... Good job, YLighting, Flos, and Mr. Starck.

Good product. Look very beautiful. I use it everyday. One thing you have to be careful it is the shade. It get peeled off very easy when you try to take the shade out to change light ball.

Miss K Lamp has clean & sleek design and emits a warm lightling effect!
I love my new Miss K Lamp. It may look like a ordinary lamp, but once you turn it on you will see how awesome the design is! I am using in a bedroom, but it would nice as a kitchen counter lamp as well. It emits a soft glow and has a wonderful gradient line design to the shade. I am very happy with the lamp as well as Ylighting - I got my lamp so quick!

excellent but small and shows dust
What a beautifully designed light! Minor compaints are that it is small, is lightweight, and shows dust (black model). Love the diffuser and it is great for mood lighting. Ylighting service was excellent, and it arrived very quickly. If only it came in white.

Lovely lamps, with some considerations
I bought a pair of black Miss K lamps to be used as bedside lighting on my nightstands. The illumination is perfect, and the adjustable dimmer can be made bright (for reading at night - perfect amount of light) or dim for display. I've now owned the lamps for 2 weeks and have noticed a few things about them:

These lamps are sleek, stylish, and well made. I worried how they might work with the hodgepodge of antiques and wrought iron we've mixed together in the bedroom, but they work well. I was worried they wouldn't provide enough light for reading, but they do that too. Great design.

beautiful lamp, another great starck design...! a bit smaller lamp then you would expect from the picture, but beautifull nonetheless.!
By:Sam P. , Designer
I love the look of this light, I ordered several for my client. It's made of plastic so it's very light in weight. It doesn't not with stand too much abuse, dropping etc, but what lamp does? The shade is the piece that tends to go first. The light switch is on the cord and has a easy to use dimmer. I would get one of these for myself if I had the space.

Love this light!
I wanted a table lamp for my office that created an inviting atmosphere and one that was polar opposite of flourescent lighting. This fit the bill. All my co-workers have stopped by to say how much they love the lighting and the design. High recommendation for this one.
