In an era where adaptability and flexibility are paramount, portable lamps have ushered in a renaissance of lighting design. With portability comes the freedom to innovate, allowing designers to craft lamps that are not only functional but also deeply immersive in their aesthetics.

Mexico-based designer Natalia Guzmán Cortés of PAAT STUDIO introduces “Eclipse” a lamp that effortlessly combines science with art. Drawing inspiration from the celestial phenomenon where light is obscured by an intervening body, Eclipse playfully manipulates transparencies. Using a blend of metal and varying shades of glass, the lamp creates a mesmerizing third colour when overlapped. As dynamic as its namesake, Eclipse allows users to determine the room’s ambience based on the chosen colour of the top glass.
