Hip-hop’s leading man of 2014 Pharrell Williams collaborates with interior design legend Kartell to create the Bourgie Lamp… I wonder if Pharrell fans will be lining up outside of the Los Angeles Kartell store outpost just like they line up and down Fairfax Ave. every time Supreme releases a new sock…If you spot hipster looking skaters in G wagons outside of Kartell please snap a pic and send it over. Stay smart.
“Cant Stop Wont Stop” is the motto this year for Mr.Williams as he has his hand in yet another endeavor. Pharrell is throwing his spin in the world of product design (once again) by designing his version of the Kartell Bourgie lamp.
Designed by Ferrucio Laviani for Italian contemporary furniture company Kartell, the Bourgie lamp is their bestselling item.
To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Kartell invited various creatives to design their own interpretation of the lamp. Here’s a first look at Pharrell’s vision which features a human arm holding the lamp and shade. It’s said to be a representation of “man’s path to enlightenment, escaping the plight of shade.” The pieces will be exhibited at Kartell’s New York showroom on Greene Street in SoHo.
