I’m not sure if secret agent really love guns or not, however, if it’s about dangerous stuff for the dangerous personal, this Bedside Gun Lamp should be pretty suitable for the mood.
This Bedside Gun Lamp is designed by Phillipe Starck, who previously well known of the design for LaCie Starck desktop HDD. He stated “Why doesn’t furniture show that everything is a political choice? I am a designer and design is my only weapon, so I use it to speak about what I think is important.”
According to Phillipe, Bedside Gun lamp has been made of die cast aluminum with injection-molded polymer overprint, and it has been polished with 18K gold-plated finish. The gun itself is just a dummy gun. You won’t be able to use it to shoot ‘cats’ or ‘dogs’ that come passing by your room via your ventilation or windows. But it should serves as an iconic symbol to show your professionalism as special agent or secret agent.
“To Life, To Death
First there were attempts at life, then the draft of life, then life itself. A civilisation was crafted so that life could live. The great, beautiful life, guaranteed to everyone, surged and survived until today, the 21st century. Bravo! Rest in peace.
After just a short period of enlightenment, the shadows return, fast, dense and menacing. Rewind, death is at the door.
Nowadays we kill – religiously, militarily, civilly. We kill out of ambition, out of greed, for the fun of it or of the show. Republics turn bananas. Tyrant are our masters, designed, manufactured, sold, dreamed, purchased and used, weapons are our new icons. Our lives are only worth a bullet.
The Guns Collection is nothing but a sign of the times. We get the symbols we deserve.
Happiness is a hot gun. Glory to our dictators
To Life, To Death”
