Madco table lamp by Elisa Ossino for Ambientec

  • by

Dezeen Showroom: Italian designer Elisa Ossino has created a minimalist interpretation of festive Japanese lanterns in the Madco portable table lamp for Ambientec.

The Madco light marks the first time the Japanese brand has incorporated colour into one of its designs, with a choice of five hues for the design, which is meant to bring a touch of elegant playfulness into any room.

The Madco lamp is Ambientic’s first product to use colour

The lamp features a sphere-shaped diffuser half enclosed in a plastic shell and suspended in a slender metal frame — a composition that invites the user to touch and turn the light source, which can rotate 360 degrees.

Madco is portable and rechargeable via USB-C, and Ossino suggests taking the waterproof lamp outside, where it can provide an aesthetic interplay with plants, and can even be hung from its handle.

The lamp is portable and its frame doubles as a handle

“It is a very flexible design,” said Ossino. “I really love Japanese culture, and with Madco I wanted to evoke a simple and modern atmosphere that refers to the past and the iconography of Japanese lanterns.”

The Madco light is available in five shades that Ambientec describes as “warm and refined”: oliva, pesca, terracotta, mostarda and ciliega.
