bring light wherever you go with the ‘la lampe paris’ by maiori objects of design (a brand name established by outdoor furniture company maiori). the solar-powered, autonomous illuminating object draws its influences from the historical streets of paris, where by night, luminosity drew people into the streets for which the french capital has now been nicknamed the ‘city of light’.

making its debut at the 2014 international furniture fair singapore (IFFS), ‘la lampe paris’ is not your typical solar powered lamp. rather than having a utilitarian aesthetic, the design has been conceived to fit into both indoor and outdoor environments through a streamlined form. weatherproof so it holds-up against the elements, ‘la lampe paris’ can be customized through 26 different combinations (a black or white frame and base, and 13 color fabric shades) and works on a modular system which sees it functioning as both a hanging (it comes with an adaptable hook for easy handling and hanging); or standing lamp (adjustable to two different heights, 130 cm or 170 cm), accompanied by a 360 degree adjustable multi-position lampshade.

the integrated solar energy module (solar cells, batteries and LEDs) can be detached from the lamp’s frame for easy charging so that you don’t have to move it in its entirety to re-power it. within five hours of sun exposure, the batteries are recharged and can then provide between 3.5-7hours of lighting time, depending on which of the three modes it is set at: low, medium or high intensity. the design utilizes the highest lighting technology for solar lamps (up to 300 lumen), and automatically turns on at night. ‘la lampe paris’ is made from high performance and environmentally responsible materials, supported by a 100% recyclable aluminium alloy powder coated frame and base; with an OTF (outdoor technical fabric) lampshade.
