french design duo normal studio has developed a collection of solar garden lamps for maiori – a company specialized in solar lighting. called ‘la lampe couture’ and presented during maison et objet, the lighting set consists of three individually sized solar lamps created for outdoor use. including a transformative foot stand to hang them, the lighting objects are ‘inspired by traditional asian lanterns that gracefully float in the sky from the heat of a single candle.’

made of an innovative translucent material, the ‘la lampe couture’ collection by normal studio for maiori conducts and enhances the degree of emitted light, maximizing the LED’s capacity. they produce a soft and warm glow and are equipped with maiori’s trademark LED lighting and photovoltaic energy technology. the lamps, which can be recharged throughout the day under the sun’s rays, have a handle that makes them versatile and provides options for lighting a table, hanging from a tree, or just setting them on the floor near a swimming pool.
