Barcelona-based designer Jordi Canudas’s award-winning Dipping Light for Marset is now available in a portable cordless version.

Set on an ultra-thin steel pedestal, Float’s aluminum-encased half-dome LED diffuser can be removed for recharging or for use on its own — or even to perch atop a wine bottle for a quirky look. Available in five colourways, the light is turned on and of and adjusted via a soft-touch system. 34.7 cm H.
Two removable glass vessels were designed in tandem with the milk glass base of this lamp, a collaboration between designer Attila Veress and chef Davide Oldani for Artemide. Doubling as serving platters, the interactive pieces play with texture and transparency, working with the ambient LED to create an atmosphere of conviviality at table. Look for it in 2021. 18 cm H.
Denmark’s Space Copenhagen developed its indoor-outdoor lamp for &Tradition with a mouth-blown satin opal glass shell, which diffuses a warm ambient light. The bent metal cap and base can be maroon (shown), black or moss; the rechargeable battery lasts up to 12 hours at the highest of three lighting levels. 28 cm H.
This hand-held lamp by Luca Nichetto for Lodes features a shapely blown-glass dome reminiscent of a bell. The rounded handle on top is also the on-off switch and dimmer for controlling light intensity and warmth. Four colour combinations are offered for the glass and slender metal base. 23.3 cm H.
