French designer Philippe Starck has taken the novel idea of a hat stand and turned it into a modest source of light. ‘The Chapo’ is a playful lamp, whose style, character and shape can change depending on the hat that is placed on top of it. The design of the lamp is minimalist and essential. An aluminum stem starts from the corner of a square-shaped base and is terminated with an LED light. You can put a hat from your own collection or use the one that comes in the box on top of the lamp as a lampshade.
The Chapo lamp also has an optical switch on the dimmable base with “Soft Touch” technology adaptor on plug connector with interchangeable plugs. A USB socket on the base enables you to recharge your smartphone and tablet.
