Hats off! The Flos Chapo is a table lamp with uncopiable style. It is obvious where its name came from: the French expression “Chapeau!” characterizes the unique ideas of the famous French designer Philippe Starck.
”When Alec Guinness, James Stewart or Fred Astaire came back home in the evening, they threw their hat on everything near them on a unique way. Why not also on a lamp?”, asked star designer Starck himself. Said, done: Chapo is the resilt of this thoughts, stormy and elegant.
The Flos Chapo spreads direct light, which is directed downwards by the hat diffuser. One hat is included in the delivery, but can also be exchanges wit any other headgear. The Flos Chapo is a charming table lamp with very special charm because of the reference to the masculine hat-throwing gesture of yesterday.
Despite of the humorous character, the Chapo has some practical values: An USB connection (max. 1,5 A) makes it possible to charge electric devices, while the decent Soft-Touch switch dims the energy-saving LED light source with warm white light (2700 K). The finish is also Flos-typically noble: the lamp’s base is chrome-plated, while the cable is coated with linen fabric.
