Like his other designs, the Hide represents Philippe Starck’s ability to speak through his art, making a powerful statement about minimalism, the environment, and the role we play in the world around us.
With a body of pressofused aluminum and a shiny finish, the Hide offers indirect light that blends seamlessly into its environment. Its diffuser is injection-printed in photo engraved PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate).
The Hide comes with several varieties of optional enhancer trims: colored PMMA and panels with a choice between noble wood, metal, or photographic images.
The injection printed wall attachment is PA66. A power pack has been built into the wall attachment. Lighting is by means of a specially designed Light Guide that provides an optimally oriented light flow for unrivaled lighting comfort. The efficiency of this innovative lighting system means that the LED can be used at full power with no significant energy loss.
The Hide is non-dimmable.
