If you’re one of those people who are all about setting the mood of a room with the right lighting and tasteful decorative lamps, then the Philippe Starck 'Hooo!!!' floor lamp and 'Haaa!!!' table lamp is just for you.

Uniquely designed and recently displayed at Milan Design Week 2010, the lamps are handmade with Baccarat crystal, with each featuring an LED display that runs down the center creating a geometric LED matrix and animated text of your choice, which can be projected onto the nearest flat surface.

The Philippe Starck Hooo!!! lamp was originally created by the French designer, but ultimately became a collaborative effort between himself, American artist, Jenny Holzer, interactive electric designer, Moritz Waldermeyer and French glass manufacturer, Baccarat.
