taking the idea of a hat stand and translating it into an object which also functions as a light, philippe starck‘s ‘chapeau’ table lamp for flos offers a whimsical design which allows one to use any type of hat as a lampshade in which to diffuse the LED array used for illumination. presented at euroluce at the 2013 salone del mobile, the lamp’s simple form acts as a base whereby the owner can customize it with their own head covering, combining the functions of two things which would otherwise not be associated with one another, resulting in a playful, interactive lighting piece.

  • The Jeeves lights are so much better then this because not only is it a novel way of using a light but its an iconic symbol of Britishness.

  • This hasn’t been done as well as it could have but Jeeves was completely different from this.

  • is this really what design inn2013 has come to? – Sad for Starck, sad for Flos and sad for us to witness.

  • Curro Claret was there long ago (2005). Same Hat but much more interesting support (personal opinion).
    Just search for Vincon Lamp Curro Claret

  • Disappointing that monsieur Starck and Flos has scraped the barrel with this design. The concept was expressed far better in 2007 by the Jeeves and Wooster collection by http://www.jakephipps.com
