Bon Jour Unplugged

Now you can take Philippe Starck’s Bon Jour lamp wherever you go, thanks to a new portable version launched by Flos.

The irrepressible Philippe Starck has created everything from hotels and mega yachts to lemon squeezers, furniture and everyday products. Needless to say, he’s worked for many of the world’s leading brands and companies, and his oft provocative but no less inventive creations never fail to get a reaction.

Starck has enjoyed a long-standing partnership with lighting company Flos, which has been making finely crafted lighting objects in collaboration with some of the world’s most beloved artists for over 50 years.

The Bon Jour LED lamp series by Philippe Starck for Flos has an ethereal, pure and almost immaterial form. One can ‘dress’ the lamp with interchangeable crowns that come in multiple finishings and materials: amber or yellow coloured injection moulded plastic, pleated fabric, or rattan. Bon Jour comes with a dimmerable switch under the base that allows users to regulate the light emission from 10 per cent to 100 per cent in four intensity steps.

Most recently, Flos has released a smaller table model version of Bon Jour. Bon Jour Unplugged comes with a micro-USB connector on its base to recharge its battery in three hours for a lighting life of six. Light and easy to handle, and with portable power to light up any space, you now don’t have any excuse to be in the dark, ever again.
