ABS plastic and acrylic
Porta Table Lamp consists of a lamp shade resting on a sturdy, rounded base, both of which are made from ABS plastic. A white, acrylic inner screen ensures a pleasant and even glow. A silicone base ring allows the lamp to stand securely.
Before cleaning, disconnect the power and allow the lamp to cool down for 10 minutes. Mind to clean the surfaces of the lamp only. Clean the lamp with a soft, dry cloth only. If necessary, wipe the surface of the lamp with a soft, damp sponge or cloth, and wipe immediately with a dry cloth. Do not use alcohol or other solvents to clean the product and avoid using abrasive or rough sponges.
Porta comes with a permanently integrated, rechargeable, low-energy LED light source which has 3 light intensity levels: 100%, 70% and 40% and a battery life of 8 hours, 24 hours, and 90 hours, respectively. The lamp comes with a USB charging cable with a length of 1 meter.
As implied by its name, Porta is the first portable lamp in the lighting collection. Characterized by its rounded, organic design cues, the cylinder base and elongated dome shape of the lamp shade contribute to an aesthetic cohesiveness. The distinctive lamp shade is designed to accommodate the need for pleasant, atmospheric lighting in smaller settings. When turned at a 90-degree angle, the lamp shade takes up less space, allowing it to easily fit into compact spaces such as windowsills, small café tables, or shelves.
Porta’s flexibility is further emphasized by its mobility. The cordless and lightweight design enables you to bring the lamp from the kitchen to the garden to your favorite reading nook. A touch-sensitive dimmer allows for three different light settings depending on the desired atmosphere, while a discreet USB charging cable ensures easy charging. Porta will provide a cozy light in any setting and fits seamlessly into commercial and residential spaces alike. Porta comes in three different colors of Black, Grey, and White.
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon's designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
"Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression."
