    Marset Bicoca Table Lamp

    The Marset Bicoca table lamp defies gravity with its detachable magnetic bottom, which allows it to be placed on any metal surface – even a wall. Its tilt-able shade can be used to direct warm ambient light anywhere in the room.

    The Flos Bellhop is a mushroom-shaped LED table-top lamp designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby for the London Design Museum. The lamp evokes the spirit of a modern-day candle, casting an intimate glow wherever it goes.

    Lanterns also make up the lineage of portable lights. Their form and function take a contemporary form in Miguel Milá’s Cestita table lamp.

    As its name suggests, the robust Rosendahl Soft Spot solar light emits a soft flare using all renewable energy, making it perfect for outdoor use.

    The Marset Follow Me outdoor light designed by Inma Bermúdex in Finland features timber handles and a durable matt white polycarbonate shade.
