Designed by Philippe Starck for flos, the ‘Chapeau’ table lamp can display any, if not all of your hats with pride. By taking the concept of a hat stand and turning it into a lamp, the hat rested on it acts as a lampshade. Clever way of combining two items with disparate functions – a hat stand + a lamp. In a way, one could also have this piece as an interactive sculpture.
Using the basic cross-shaped form of the lamp (seen below), diffuses the light beautifully under your rested hat.
