The Madco light marks the first time the Japanese brand has incorporated colour into one of its designs, with a choice of five hues for the design, which is meant to bring a touch of elegant playfulness into any room.
The lamp features a sphere-shaped diffuser half enclosed in a recycled plastic shell and suspended in a slender metal frame — a composition that invites the user to touch and turn the light source, which can rotate 360 degrees.
Madco is portable and rechargeable via USB-C, and Ossino suggests taking the waterproof lamp outside, where it can provide an aesthetic interplay with plants, and can even be hung from its handle.
"It is a very flexible design," said Ossino. "I really love Japanese culture, and with Madco I wanted to evoke a simple and modern atmosphere that refers to the past and the iconography of Japanese lanterns."
The Madco light is available in five shades that Ambientec describes as "warm and refined": oliva, pesca, terracotta, mostarda and ciliega.
