Portable lamps: design and light at hand

The playful and cute Flowerpot by Verner Panton, the mesmerizing Kizu combining glass and marble or the monochromatic Apollo. The various colours, shapes and stylistic takes on the portable lamp concept open up the space to choose the best one, often resembling a piece of art or decoration.

Scandinavian brands are increasingly reviving the ancient concept of the portable lantern and dressing it up in modern design. Lamps limited by the distance of the cord from the socket may have had their day. In addition to a sophisticatedly concealed switch and multiple light intensities, portable lanterns also boast long battery life and an outdoor presence.

The brands Ferm Living and Normann Copenhagen have also made their debuts in the portable lamp section this spring. The former has introduced the beautiful Meridian collection in several enticing designs. There is no shortage of metallic finishes or the popular Cashmere. The Porta luminaires from Normann Copenhagen in matt white, black and grey again exude straightforward minimalism.



Fans of artfully selected shades and monochromatic objects will be delighted with the &Tradition brand with its extensive Flowerpot collection and all its disparate designs. In addition to these, the Como or the banker's lamp-inspired Caret lamps have been newly added.
