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.

The product was received in excellent condition and I am very happy about the price.
The service I received from Y Lighting was top of the line. They worked with me on price, as I am a trade customer, and the fixtures came fast and in tact. I would shop here again and tell other people about it.

beautiful reinterpretation of a tired shape
The Romeo Moon is a beautiful fixture. It is very heavy but can make a room sing. The illuminated glass in the shape of an average fabric shade glows wondrously. It is a great centerpiece in the dining room. I would definitely recommend it!

IT's a good product but should be lighter.
The reason I purchased this product is to replace a broken one in my company cafeteria. The plastic ring of the old one cracked and the shade and dome fell to marble floor and damaged. The new one has a metal ring in addition to the plastic ring, looks like an enhancement to the product. Maybe after many complain about the strength of the plastic ring? The shade should be made of plastic instead of glass to reduce the overall weight.

Love the lamp
This is a sleek, modern lamp that looks great over our dining table. You can order this from a number of different sites, but I found ylighting to have excellent customer service. The first light I ordered came quickly, but was damaged. Ylighting immediately sent out a replacement part. They were responsive and made it easy to deal with the damaged part.
