Description

Provocative, symbolic, polemical and subversive, the Guns de Philippe Starck lamp collection denounces the firearms trade is the warmth of greed in the modern world. Voluntarily bling bling, the precious chrome or gold 18 carat finish, shows the collusion between money and war. Gold symbolizes the enrichment of states through the sale of weapons. The bases of these lamps represent three models of firearms. Each model denounces the responsibility of a part of the globe, involved in the arms trade: the Beretta shows the responsibility of Western Europe, the Kalashnikov of Eastern Europe and the M16 of the United States. The lampshade whose interior is silkscreened with crosses, is the symbol of death scattered throughout the world by firearms. Thanks to their presence in our daily environments, these lamps remind our consciences that "if we live well it is because someone else dies". "A true work of art with a politically committed design, the Gun lamp is part of the Georges-Pompidou museum of modern art in Paris. A portion of the proceeds from the Guns collection goes to the Frère des Hommes Europe association which fights against poverty in the world. Philippe Starck: '' Today we kill religiously. militarily, civilly, sometimes very civilly, out of ambition, greed, pleasure, entertainment. The republics are banana makers, our tyrant authorities. Create, manufacture, sell, buy, use, our new icons are weapons. Our lives are not worth a cartridge. The "Guns" collection is just a sign of the times. We have the symbols we deserve. The base represents a kalashnikov (denounces the responsibility of the countries of Eastern Europe in the trade of firearms) - Interior of the lampshade screen-printed with crosses, symbol of death caused by weapons - 20% of profits donated to the association Frère des Hommes Europe - Part of the collection of the Georges-Pompidou modern art museum, Paris - Light bulb (not supplied): 1 x MAX 70W E27 HSGS ou 1 LED 8W E27 900lm - Cable changer - Direct and ambient light
