Guns Collection | Philippe Starck | 2005 – Flos
Inspiration Behind the Design:
Phillipe Starck said "Why doesn't furniture show that everything is a political choice? I am a designer and design is my only weapon, so I use it to speak about what I think is important." He also explains:
"The gold of the weapons represents the collusion between money and war.
The Table Gun symbolizes the East
Bed Side Gun symbolizes 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."
