Portable Lamp, PL1 – a portable, rechargeable lamp from the English Sowden collection of lamps, Shades . Sowden's studio has researched the dispersion and colors of light, and the lamps have components made of silicone, which, in addition to being resistant and washable, is also an excellent material for creating bright colors - and for diffusing light.
As an artist, designer and product developer, George Sowden has worked all over the world since he moved from his hometown of Leeds to Milan back in 1970. Sowden has a personal interest in the craft itself and in working with smaller businesses. In 1981, he co-founded the design and architecture group, The MEMPHIS Design Movement, and in 2010 he named his own brand, Sowden.
PL1 's brightness can be adjusted up and down and a USB cable is included for charging the battery. PL 1 can be used both indoors and outdoors in places where it is dry. It takes about three hours to fully charge the lamp and a fully charged can PL1 light at full strength for around 4.5 hours – and otherwise for up to 10 hours per charge, depending on the selected brightness. The lamp can shine indefinitely when connected via USB.
