Introducing the PC Portable Lamp - one of a range of light fixtures based on Pierre Charpin’s original PC Task Light, a HAY classic. Like its predecessor, the PC Portable hides its engineering inside a sleek base and is topped with the line’s signature tulip-shaped shade.
Portable, compact, splash-proof and providing up to ten hours of illumination via a rechargeable battery, this little light is perfect for indoor as well as outdoor use. Pop it on your outdoor dining table for a warm glow during summer dinners, bring it with you on family camping trips, or place it in a dark living room corner for the soft effect of candlelight. The PC Portable can go anywhere and everywhere, bringing light to those nooks and crannies we all tend to neglect and make any space feel more like home.
The colours for the PC Portable are designed to match the HAY Palissade range of outdoor furniture, but will equally suit any indoor environment just as well. The cream white finish provides an ambient light, whilst the soft black and olive both provide directional down light.
Pierre Charpin on the design: “I often talk about the sensuality in design. I wanted this lamp to be more sensual than technical, to make the object less demonstrative and more user-friendly. As HAY was developing its first lighting collection, we worked on the PC lamp project with the common desire to propose a sophisticated and affordable product. HAY offers design that fits in the home as well as in the workplace, and as a designer I want to design objects that can easily span the border between home, office, public space, outdoor and indoor. The PC Lamp is a nice example of this limitless design vision"
