“Black as the colour of death.
Crosses of our dead ones.
Gold colour as ambition.
War weapons; domestic weapons, bedside, table, living room weapons.
“Aux Armes” everywhere, as an ending.”
In 2005 FLOS and Philippe Starck launched the special Guns collection project and decided to earmark 20% of sales revenue from these lamps to Fratelli dell’Uomo, a non-governmental organisation which promotes and supports social and economic development programmes in favour of disadvantaged people through the wider European network Frères des Hommes. With Flos’ donation, the association has been able to complete various practical projects, mainly in Senegal, Burkina Faso and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
