SEINE PORTABLE LAMP
BY SPACE COPENHAGEN
POETRY IN MOTION
Inspired by the behavior of light on moving water, Seine draws on the layering and blurring effects of glass to practically illuminate spaces while creating a dreamy and reflective atmosphere. By making the design mobile, Space Copenhagen has created the ultimate modern lantern, taking portable lighting to a new level of elegance and craftsmanship.
CREATE AN ATMOSTPHERE
GUBI’s introduction of a dedicated portable version of Space Copenhagen’s Seine lighting concept allows lovers of design to bring its magical, mood-setting play of light into any space, effortlessly moving between indoors and out as they desire.
Like its static counterparts – the Seine Pendant, Ceiling Lamp, and Table Lamp – the Seine Portable Lamp’s defining feature is a shade in patterned mouth-blown glass – a modest, modernist design with vintage references. The clover-like, dome-shaped shade is created by blowing the glass into a mold, allowing it to set into its distinctive grooved shape, evoking the shimmer and motion of a gently flowing river. It remains a beautiful object even when switched off.
AT HOME INSIDE OR OUT
Used either individually or deployed in clusters on long tables, Seine Portable Lamps offer the flexibility to extend afternoon barbecues into evening soirées under the stars, and to keep enjoying the life alfresco even as summer shifts into autumn. Indoors, the lamps are ever-ready companions, able to transform dark corners into cozy reading nooks, or guide night owls on midnight wanders around the house.
The Seine Portable Lamp incorporates a specially developed LED lamp and integrated battery pack. The lamp charges to full in 6.5–8 hours. offering hours and hours of light depending on the dimmer setting: 50-60 hours at 10%; 12–14 hours at 50%; and up to seven hours at full brightness. The touch-activated three-stage dimmer set into the base allows the user to set the light level that the atmosphere demands, or to brighten up outdoor spaces in stages as the sun sets.
The kinship between Space Copenhagen and GUBI is defined by a shared philosophy that combines elegant simplicity with a cosmopolitan international outlook. Prioritizing functionality and personality in design while focusing on a few effective details has resulted in a self-assured design universe that emphasizes a sense of spaciousness and identity paired with a nuanced understanding of materials and craftsmanship – beautifully epitomized in Seine.
The portable edition of Space Copenhagen’s elegantly crafted Seine Collection allows design lovers to bring its atmospheric play of light to any space, effortlessly moving between indoors and out.
The Seine Portable Lamp features a steel base with antique-brass finish and a mouth-blown glass shade with a sandblasted finish, which gives the light a soft, textured quality. A bespoke docking plate, fitted with a steel weight ring and powered by USB-C, acts as permanent base and charging station. Although it should be charged and stored indoors, the lamp is splash-proof and resistant to sand and soil, so can be freely used in every outdoor setting.
