philippe starck's guns collection

Ain’t these some cool lamps?

At least I think they’re quite cool… And I guess it won’t be too hard to make a design ripoff off of them. (Think toy-guns, spraypaint etc.)

There’s an explanation of Philippe Starck:

The gold of the weapons represents
the collusion between money and war
Table Gun symbolises the East
Bed Side Gun symbolises Europe
Lounge Gun stands for the West
The black shade signifies death
The crosses on the inside are to remind us
of our dead ones.

Right, Philippe, whatever you say, I just think they’re cool… that’s all… :-)
