"Whole republics are crazy. Tartar are our master. Designed, manufactured, sold, dreamed, bought and used, weapons are our new icons. Our life is worth a bullet.
The Guns Collection is only a sign of our time. We get the symbols that we deserve." explains the designer. The label on the foot plate of the lamp is called "Happiness is a hot gun".
The Gun-Collection wants to call attention on the worldwide weapon exports of many governments: The gold of the Gun-Lamps represents the confidential accordance between money and war. Referring to this, the in the Bed Side Gun - dispayed Beretta - symbolises the accordance of Europe. The black lamp shade symbolises the death. The crosses on the inside of the shade want to remind us on our death. With that the whole Gun collection moves the context over to a kind of memorial for many dead people, which where killed in many, profit-oriented wars.
To underline the intentions of the designer, the manufacturer Flos donated twenty percent of the sale proceeds of the Gun-collection to the human rights organisation Frères des Hommes, Europe.
