PL4 Portable Lamp

PL4 Portable Lamp


Designed by George Sowden. The latest from Memphis Design Group founding member George Sowden, the PL4 is a small rechargeable lamp composed of a glossy stand and a contrast-coloured shade in soft silicone which spreads colour, character and comfortable light.

The light has three brightness settings, controlled by tapping the top of the lamp. Supplied with a USB cable for charging, the battery will give 4 to 10+ hours of cordless illumination depending on the degree of brightness selected. Or leave plugged in if preferred.

The idea behind the SHADES collection of lamps took shape in 2020 when Sowden discovered the extraordinary light diffusion of soft silicone; a non-toxic material that is easy to clean, stands up to impact and stays looking good over time.

Environmental Responsibility
