Circle / a portable lamp


Thanks to its suction cup, Circle can stick almost everywhere. It receives its energy from a powerful battery, so there is no limitation in positioning it. Apparently levitating on walls, ceilings or windows it emits a soft, golden warm light which gets diffused by tiny airbubbles, embetted in the suction cup during the casting process. These bubbles give each lamp a unique fingerprint, and create a smooth, atmospheric flow from brightness to darkness. Moreover, all the containing parts are easy to dismount, so the lamp can be repaired easily. This makes it unproblematic to separate the different materials during the recycling process, too.
