As much as people are continually intrigued by brand new designs, the fresh recycling of older forms can be just as fascinating. The Lampe Lena is an example of a retro object that has been made more convenient with modern technology, meanwhile maintaining its charming nostalgic appearance.

Alexandre Reignier began with a base form of a soft cylinder. To this, he fixed a flaring beacon and installed a bright lightbulb in the center. The compact illuminator has was given a powerful rechargeable battery inside, enabling you to carry the lantern around without the burden of a cord. Available in a range of colors, from vivid to subdued, the Lampe Lena is wrapped with leather straps to facilitate its portability.
