Designed: 2005 “Kalashnikov AK47” Table Gun Origin: Italy Media pictures of Saddam Hussein’s gold-plated gun, recovered when America and its allies attacked Iraq, inspired the line, which contains floor, desk, and bedside models. The guns are coated in gold leaf to allude to the military-industrial complex, while their black lampshades signify death. Small, smoked crosses line the inner portion of the shades, miniature graveyards that remind users that the next passing could be their own. To drive home our culpability, Starck chose different guns to represent different nations. The Beretta symbolizes the responsibility of western Europe; the Kalashnikov, the suffering caused by the former USSR; and the M16, the havoc created by the United States. Body is die cast aluminum with injection-molded polymer overprint and gold-plated finish 18K. Matt black plasticized paper diffuser, silk-screen gold printing inside. Bulb: 1 x 150W E27 halgen bulb Size: H 92.4 cm, Shade H 26.4 cm, Shade Dia 51.5 cm, Base Dia 28 cm.
