Turn and Turn+ portable lamps by Nao Tamura for Ambientec

Dezeen Showroom: the Turn and Turn+ family of lighting is a series of rechargeable and portable lamps that can provide up to 500 hours of light, created by Nao Tamura for Japanese brand Ambientec.

New York-based Japanese designer Tamura created the Turn desk lamp in 2019 for Ambientec. The lamp combines high-tech lighting with detailed artisanal craftsmanship and fine materials.

Turn is characterised by its sleek metal form that contrasts the soft, radiant glow emanating from the light

The Turn collection is designed as a study of contrasts: the elegant metallic forms juxtapose the soft, candle-like glow emitted from the circular shades.

The lamp features an integrated touch sensor, which is activated through a gentle tap on the top of the shade. This enables the intensity of the light to be adjusted or dimmed in order to suit a wide range of activities.

The Turn lamps are cordless, rechargeable, waterproof and dust-resistant

Its cordless design means that the lamp can be used in a wide array of settings including bedrooms, bathrooms, hotels, restaurants and even outdoors on balconies or gardens. The lamp is waterproof and features an enclosure that prevents dust ingress.

Like its predecessor, Turn+ is carved from a block of robust metals such as stainless steel, brass or black aluminum, which have been selected for their durability. The new addition is also available with the choice of solid glass for its diffuser.
