FLOS has launched its cordless table lamp, 'Bellhop.' Originally designed for the restaurant tables at the new London Design Museum, this petite rechargeable lamp is now available to all design lovers in 4 colors.
Designed by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, the portable lamp pays homage to the hatted hotel porter, from which it gets its name, with its reminiscent, bell-like shape. Bellhop, measuring 8.2" tall, is equally playful and practical. It offers a comfortable, anti-glare glow for up to 24 hours between charging. The designers chose to utilize edge-lighting technology, the innovative method of lighting a flat disc with a ring of LEDs around its edges, to ensure an evenly lit surface.
"The Bellhop began when we designed a table lamp for the new London Design Museum," E. Barber and J. Osgerby stated. "The tabletop Bellhop gives the user ultimate flexibility as a portable lamp. Bellhop casts an atmospheric pool of light and the portable version is like a modern-day candle."
A mixture of neutral and bold finishes, such as white, grey, burnt orange and dark brown add a touch of warmth to any interior space. The table lamp re-charges via USB-C, charging in 3 hours and has a carefully hidden status indicator under the base. At the push of a button, the user has four different dimming options between 10%-100%.
