‘lume’ is a small but luminous portable lantern conceived as a good luck gift for the most important people in our lives, created by italian designer alessandro zambelli for bosa. it is a travelling companion, symbolising closeness and affection. its beneficent presence illumines and brightens every moment of the day. ‘lume’ forms part of bosa’s new collection ‘non ti scordar di me’ – forget me not – presented at maison et objet in paris. it also marks the start of designer zambelli’s co-operation with the treviso-based company.

‘lume’ consists of a small cylindrical base serving as a candle holder, topped by a sweeping parabola on which the entire design hinges. the look is quite specific: in fact, it is a conscious tribute to the old-style bicycle lamp. the parabola protects the sliver of light and, at the same time, projects it in one direction. at the back, ‘lume’ features an equally singular detail: inspired by the buttons on the old, gas-fired cigarette lighters, the a handle allows the lantern to be moved while lit, as well as when extinguished.

this small, ceramic lantern is handmade with a white enamel finish. alternative colours are coral pink and pistachio green. both colour versions are embellished with the glint of a rose gold finish, which picks out the lantern’s handle and runs around the inside of the surrounding parabola.
