This year at the Milan Salone de Mobile, special guests were invited for a viewing of a new collaborative work by Italian lighting company FLOS, French Crystal producer BACCARAT, artist Jenny Holzer, designer Philippe Starck, and electrical designer Moritz Waldemeyer.
The HAA table lamp and HOO Floor lamp
For this project designer Philippe Starck worked with the craftsmen of Baccarat (created on commission by Louis XV in 1764) to create a spectacular crystal lamp piece. Contained within are the electronic works of Moritz Waldemeyer and FLOS which create the scrolling LED message system. The entire piece is brought to life by the words of Jenny Holzer as they run up the body of the lamp.
Only 9 versions of the Floor lamp and 49 versions of the Table lamp were produced.
