coudamy design: ortal

paris-based designer paul coudamy has created ‘ortal’, a flexible mobile LED lighting system which is constructed from the appropriation of extra-resistant PVC industrial pipes. conceived as a means of adapting to a range of situations, ortal’s bendable structure offers a number of positions which allow it to be hung in a bookcase, placed on a table, put flat behind a pillow, wound around a chair’s leg or coiled at ground level. energy consumption is very low thanks to a high luminosity LED equivalent to a 30W light bulb housed within the length of the lamp’s body.

below you can see some of the many configurations of ‘ortal’:
