SOLD 2006 Philippe Starck Design for Flos AK47 Table Lamp in Matte 18k Gold Plate
Listed for sale is an early production AK47 table lamp designed by Philippe Starck and produced by Flos. This is an iconic and highly provocative design by Starck, which can be said about many of the designer's works. This particular example is notable in that its the earlier matte 18k gold plated version, as opposed to the polished gold plated finish which is used today. This example is in very good to excellent condition with some light wear from use. It appears that a small hairline cracked formed in the process of dye-casting this piece, which is only visible when inspecting from very close up. It does not affect the lamp's functionality or appearance. The piece was acquired from the original owner and was produced circa 2006.
The lamp measures 36.5 inches tall by 20 inches in diameter.
