"A magic bookcase where the books take flight towards the light"- Philippe Starck
Only a visionary mind like Philippe Starck’s could imagine a floor lamp like ‘Biblioteque Nationale’. The French designer imagines a fairy tale bookcase where the books pirouette and take flight towards the light. This lamp, without sacrificing formal rigor and simplicity, which are constant features in Starck’s work, perfectly expresses the tastes and needs of everyday lives comprising multi-function, dynamic objects. The designer has created small shelves on the main stem for books and other articles. He has also extended its functions with a USB connector to recharge popular smartphones. Having it near us facilitates our daily habits of reading, making telephone calls or relaxing. A surreal addition to settings, ‘Bibliotheque Nationale’ seems to fulfill our simplest but most fundamental desires, with that magic that is often a feature of Starck’s creations. Floor lamp providing diffused light. The shelves are polished stainless steel. A USB connector on the base can be used to recharge popular smartphones.
