Created by innovative design master Philippe Starck, the Miss K table lamp brings a delightful duality to its work. When unlit, its transparent PC (polycarbonate) outer diffuser—which is internally finished with a high vacuum aluminization process—rests with a sleek metallic tint. When the lamp is lit, the transparency of the diffuser is evident and it appears as if you’re looking at an x-ray of a lamp. The Miss K features a fully transparent, injection-molded PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate, UL-94 HB) frame and an opal injection-molded PC (polycarbonate; UL-94 V0) internal diffuser. There is a dimmer for 0-100% luminosity and a transparent, polarized cord. The Miss K provides diffused light.
Inspiration behind the design: There is always more than meets the eye with a Philippe Starck creation. With Miss K, the designer invites us to explore the inner workings of the lamp, seeming to suggest that the items we rely on every day have more power within than we seem to realize.
