Three days in May
From 23 to 25 May 2019 Copenhagen will celebrate 3daysofdesign again.
Like many of Jaime Hayon’s pieces, the Setago comes with a story. ‘Seta’ – the Spanish word for mushroom – sets the tone for the diminutive, mushroom-like proportions of this quirky table lamp. But a further clue to its identity is signified by the suffix ‘go’ because this lamp – unburdened by an electrical cord – can literally go anywhere.
Rather than remain stationary, it was made to be moved around with ease, plucked like foliage from the floor and carried from one room to the next. To recharge, it simply needs to be attached to a USB cable. “I wanted to create a lamp that prioritized versatility,” says Hayon of his vision. “The Setago’s cord-free feature means it is extremely adaptable, equally suitable indoors as well as outside.” Drawing inspiration from the artistry of a Japanese lantern, Hayon melds superior craftsmanship with the decidedly modern capabilities of his cord-free design. Despite such integration of technology, the workings remain hidden inside to keep the lamp’s form clean and uncluttered. The light it produces is equally considered – the mood is manipulated by a discreet gold dimmer that controls the diffused, ambient light.
