Flos Miss K Soft

The Miss K is a delightfully sophisticated table lamp by Philippe Starck for Flos. It is part of the large K Tribe range of table, suspension, floor and wall lights all with the trademark diffuser within a diffuser. The Miss K Soft is a little different as the usual hard transparent outer shade is replaced with a soft opaque fabric one. The light that it gives is very even thanks to the inner diffuser and the timeless pleated shade creates an interesting tension between it and the very modern transparent base. The standard hard version of the Miss K comes in three colours, black with gold shade interior, transparent and silver and red and silver. With subtle horizontal lines or soft vertical pleats in the outer shade and its slender trumpet base the Miss K and Miss K Soft are lovely feminine piece of tabletop architecture.

Philippe Starck was born in 1949 in Paris, France. The son of an aeronautical engineer, Starck studied at the École Camondo in Paris. Starck's first iconoclastic designs, an early indicator of Starck's interest in where and how people live, brought him to the attention of Pierre Cardin who offered him a job as artistic director of his publishing house. At the same time, Starck set up his first industrial design company, Starck Product and began working with manufacturers in Italy and internationally. His concept of democratic design led him to focus on mass-produced consumer goods rather than one-off pieces. Starck's prolific output expanded to include furniture, decoration, architecture and basically everything in between. The buildings he designed went against traditional norms, the first, in Tokyo was clad in a living material that evolved over time. Starck believes that creation, whatever form it takes, must improve the lives of as many people as possible, he is a true renaissance man.

For fifty years Flos have been crafting objects out of light. Light is the medium they work in order to express new ideas and illuminate emotions. Flos see the future, embrace the past and live in the present, facing the challenges and choices that have shaped their image and identity. History has taught them to fan the flames of provocation into new poetic notions of functionality, to trust intuition, to dare to create products that no one else would and to establish new typologies and archetypes. Flos are connected to the old masters of design yet happy to promote new talents, to command high technological status, to be revered for what they have done and what they might yet do. Flos open the way through experimentation and the use of revolutionary materials, they strive to conceive new languages around light and to chart new aesthetics, new freedoms for living. Flos walk the fine line between art and design, craftsmanship and industry, between an individual idea and the collective imagination.
