The Setago Portable Table Lamp was designed by Jaime Hayon in 2019 for Danish design house &Tradition. Like many of Jaime Hayon’s pieces, the Setago comes with a story. ‘Seta’ –the Spanish word for mushroom – sets the tone for the diminutive, mushroom-like proportions of this quirky table lamp. But a further clue to its identity is signified by the suffix ‘go’ because this lamp – unburdened by an electrical cord– can literally go anywhere. Rather than remain stationary, it was made to be moved around with ease, plucked like foliage from the floor and carried from one room to the next. To recharge, it simply needs to be attached to a USB cable.

“I wanted to create a lamp that prioritized versatility,” says Hayon of his vision.“The Setago’s cord-free feature means it is extremely adaptable, equally suitable indoors as well as outside.”This careful consideration to detail has been applied to other facets of the Setago. Drawing inspiration from the artistry of a Japanese lantern, Hayon melds superior craftsmanship with the decidedly modern capabilities of his cord-free design. Despite such integration of technology, the workings remain hidden inside to keep the lamp’s form clean and uncluttered. The light it produces is equally considered. The light intensity is adjusted by a discreet brass dimmer that controls the diffused, ambient light. Available in a range of modern colours, the Setago will add an understated touch to any environment. Look closer at the lamp shade and you’ll notice it ends in a small upward curve. It’s another small yet stylish accent – much like the Setago itself.

&Tradition reworks design icons from past masters and creates tomorrow’s classics in collaboration with contemporary designers, upholding the tenets of craftsmanship to produce furniture, lighting and accessories that meet modern needs for function, comfort and beauty.
