Haaa!!! and Hooo!!! are 2 new lamps designed by Philippe Starck, Haaa!!! is a big floor lamp, Hooo!!! is a table lamp. Actually it was a true collaboration between 5 parties: the design is by Philippe Starck, text is by Jenny Holzer, the custom electronics were done by Moritz Waldemeyer, the crystal by Baccarat and the execution by Flos.
The be honest, I don’t think the design is very interesting, I’m pretty sure that Philippe recycled some of his older designs … So why is it interesting? For me it is the visual effect of having a white LED matrix running through a handmade crystal lamp, displaying the truisms of Jenny Holzer. Of course both a very limited, only 9 units will be available of Haaa!!! and will cost €90.000, Hooo!!! will be build 49 times and will set you back €9.000.
