Starck Chapo

Half a century ago, many a distinguished gentleman would throw their hat onto a stand, rack, or just about anything, really. Philippe Starck’s fittingly named Chapo desk lamp offers up a spot for a hat, putting it on display at home whenever it’s not on your head. Chapo boasts a polished aluminum body, one 8W downwards-facing LED with a photo etched diffuser, an optical dimmer, and an X-shaped frame that’ll keep your hat stable while pulling double duty as a lampshade. A USB port also adorns its base for recharging a device, something we appreciate considering that our computers (read: MacBooks) just aren’t equipped with enough.
