Super Archimoon by Philippe Starck for Flos ItalyFlos
A brilliant play on perspective, Super Archimoon feels oversized and magnificent, providing direct and diffused light via a pleated cloth external diffuser and acid-etched, handblown glass internal diffuser. 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.
Inspiration behind the design:
By creating a desk lamp writ large in the most captivating of ways, Philippe Starck challenges us once again to look differently at the objects we see every day.
This beauty is in great condition and functions perfectly. The only flaw is that there is a minor dent in the aluminium base cover as can be seen in the images. Any car body shop should be able to take it out easily.
