In Vitro Unplugged Lantern

In Vitro is a poetic lighting collection from legendary French designer, Philippe Starck. Ever one to subvert expectations, the In Vitro collection sees him vanquish the traditional bulb in favour of a futuristic plasma-infused glass casing. In doing so, Starck allows for a 360 degree, unhampered experience of light. Ethereal yet architectural, it makes for a mesmerising and versatile addition to outdoor spaces.

Product Info

Product Description

In 2015, Philippe Starck made a shocking announcement. While revealing his latest battery powered portable lamp, he declared that everything that is unessential must go. The In Vitro Unplugged Lantern is the latest evolution of this theory. Its lithe architectural form vanquishes not just the shackle of cables but the traditional glass bulb that has for so long interfered with our experience of light. It's replaced instead by a futuristic plasma-infused glass casing which both radiates and reflects light. At night it transforms into a glowing glass lantern, magically unhampered and ethereal.

"Since forever, the lightbulb is protected by a glass globe. Today, this disappears in favour of the light. It is both the poetic and surrealistic idea of dematerialized architectural lighting and the memory of the space occupied by the light." — Philippe Starck
