Subtle yet striking, the KTribe floor lamp by Philippe Starck provides diffused light through a transparent diffuser that gracefully moves the eye upward. The base, rod support, and diffuser support are die-cast, polished, and chrome-plated Zamak alloy. The rod is polished aluminum. The opal inner diffuser and support for the lamp holder are injection-molded PC (polycarbonate). Outer diffusers are transparent PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate), available in silver or bronze. The upper ring is injection-molded PC, and is completely transparent (or transparent brown for the outer bronze diffuser).
Inspiration behind the design: French designer Philippe Starck is known for an ability to create objects that “demand the most from the least,” and the Ktribe-F is no exception. Streamlined and smart, it pushes boundaries while reflecting his focus on positive reduction and environmental consciousness.
