Cutting it cordless
by Jasmin Jouhar | 4/2/2017
Phones, speakers, headphones, vacuum cleaners: Cordless devices are gradually taking over our daily lives. And now we’re seeing portable luminaires too. We present the most exciting models.
Koho is a lamp for outdoors, rechargeable and portable, softly rounded with no sharp corners. Small in size, it can easily be moved and placed exactly where light is needed, with no cables to get in the way. Its name comes from the Finnish word for fishing float and was designed by Mika Tolvanen from Finland, attentive to trouble-free practical use of objects. It has a lid, which comes in three different colours (yellow, grey or blue) that holds the light source. Vertical grooves run up and down the polyethylene body. Koho turns on and off by a touch switch on top of the lid.
When on, the lamp has an autonomy of around 7 hours, after which it flashes to signal that the battery needs recharging. If the lamp is not recharged, the drive card in the lid cuts off the power supply to stop the battery from running down completely. A red LED switches off when the battery has fully recharged. The characteristics of this lamp mean it can be placed on a surface or on the ground, either right way up or on its lid. A simply versatile article for outdoor living: perfect for lighting up a dinner table in the garden or on a terrace, on board a boat or by the pool side.
