This Philippe Starck creation features a gray painted steel stem and die-cast aluminum base and yolk, as well as an injection-molded transparent PC (polycarbonate) diffuser support. There is an on/off dimmer on the cable and a chrome-plated steel sensor located on the neck of the fitting. Power cord included.
Inspiration behind the design:
“Design, at best, can try to improve life,” says designer Philippe Starck. With an eye on innovation and a passion for ethical living, Starck creates pieces—like the Romeo Soft-F—that brings beauty to the world in a tangible and accessible way.

Philippe Starck Designs
In 1982, Philippe was commissioned by the then-president of France, Francois Mitterrand, to design the interior space for the private apartments in the Elysée Palace. Following that incredible achievement, he designed the famous Café Costes, cementing his position in the design world.
Philippe also designed the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and the control tower at Bordeaux airport.
Philippe believes that objects should “good” before being beautiful. The designer also believes in the concept of “democratic design,” meaning that quality objects should be available at lower prices so that more people can enjoy the best. He considers it his duty to share his ethical and subversive vision of a fairer world. The designer has created a wide range of objects from furniture to mail order homes, motorbikes, mega-yachts, outdoor furniture, interiors, floor lamps, and he has even developed artistic direction for space-travel projects.
