Bagdad portable lamp

Originally designed in 1954, the Bagdad Lamp is a brilliantly offbeat showcase of Mathieu Matégot’s material affinity with perforated metal. A multifaceted, cubist construction with a comet-like tip, the Bagdad design has proven timeless in its playful uniqueness. It was initially conceived as a wired table lamp. The new GUBI edition scales down the size by half and adds a further element of versatility by making it portable, adding to the ever-growing collection of rechargeable lights without limits.
