Philippe Starck’s Miss K Table Lamp (2003) has fast become Flos Lighting’s best-selling product for its functionality-based dual aesthetic. When unlit, the polycarbonate lampshade shows subtle detail with a dark metallic tint. When lit, the lamp appears almost like an x-ray, with the bulb starkly visible behind the now-clear illuminated shade. The fluid pedestal base of the lamp is clear at all times. An on-cord dimmer takes the light from 0–100% luminosity, from atmospheric glow to reading-appropriate brightness. The lamp’s compact scale is suited to small tables and busy worktops. Bulb (included): halogen 100W/120V/E26/T10. Made in Italy by Flos.
