‘Odeon’, a portable light bound in leather designed for Italian design brand FontanaArte, is not an antidote to digital technology, it’s a complement say designers Studio Klass.

“Contemporary technology brought us many items – smartphones, tablets, e-books – shifting our IT fulcrum from home-offices to living room, changing the direction we usually get information: before we went to a desk where the PC was, now portable digital data can follow us everywhere.” says Studio Klass. ”For this reason, sometimes we need an ambient light that smooths the contrasts between digital displays and a completely dark room, and can be used as a relaxing light to enjoy a tv show or just talking while sitting on a sofa.”

“We wanted a lamp with a strong relationship with the surrounding environment, an abiding correlation between light and space”. Entirely covered in cuoietto leather, Odeon casts its light to the wall creating a warm glow of refracted light, while the other side screens the bulb. A leather handle allows users to place the lamp anywhere.
