There are many obscure technical terms in the world of lighting; "portable table lamps" is not one of them. Through the miracle of rechargeable battery technology, portable table lights like Pablo's Candél or Flos' Bellhop offer an extra level of versatility along with their beautiful forms.
Naturally, portability is the key advantage one enjoys with portable lights such as Hipatia from a-emotional light or Cestita Alubat, the latest addition to Santa & Cole's legendary Cesta collection. But the ability to create a warm and intimate atmosphere with a cordless light is no less important, as you will find if you choose the smooth porcelain luxury of Lladró's Ice Cream.
G+T Battery Portable from Contardi makes a divine reading light, slung over the arm or back of your favourite chair, and TeTaTeT from Davide Groppi is a portable light that invites you to get in close with that special someone.
Drylight TL6 from Masiero offers a sense of neo-classical opulence, while Karman indulges in rustic charm with its wine-bottle-shaped Bacco. Slamp's Clizia Fume and Clizia Mama Non Mama resemble luminary bouquets, while essential shapes combine to evoke a spherical lantern in Estiluz's Circ series.
