Self-taught French designer Alexandre Reignier has taken inspiration from the traditional miner’s lamp in his latest project – a small portable light called Lampe Lena. Once charged through the mains, the cordless lamp’s battery can last up to eight hours, making it suitable for use in any part of your home or while travelling.
The sweet, whimsical lamp is made from polyamide and has a lacquered gloss finish, available in white, pastel green, orange and red. In contrast to this contemporary finish is the leather strapping that forms the lamp’s carry handle. The vegetable-tanned leather harness features solid brass fastenings and is handmade in Southern France.
The lamp’s portability makes it suitable for use outside the home as a luxury travel accessory. For products on a similar theme, see the Stylus report On the Road: A Home Away from Home.
