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.

Sleek yet traditional design.
These well made lights are sleek, modern and traditional all at the same time. The manufacturer also provides plenty of wire so it can be hung from a myriad of ceiling heights.

It isn't as bright as expected, and the "see-through" aspect is less dramatic than the photos on the web show. Still like it.

Like it but....
I think it is a beautiful lamp but I was expecting it to be heavier. It is just too light. However, despite this its design does it for me.

Beautiful form, perfect light diffusion
This product was originally purchased at the larger size and placed through out our new residential project. However in the final location, the larger size (S3) was too large, fortunately this product is available in 3 sizes and the S2 was a perfect fit. I would recommend this product to any modern application.

Great looking light
Contemporary but not too modern - really nice clean fixture. Using over our kitchen island.
Happy with purchase
Great, simple and chic!
An amazing light with a not so amazing base.
One of the best Philippe Starck designs. The light itself is beautiful with subtle lines that accentuate the gradual light dome in the center. My only complaint is that the base is made with very light weight plastic and is a chunky thick flat disk. I wonder if either the base was flatter or with a type of taper that mimic the shade would have made it more of a complete unit.
