by Matteo Fogale

In Stock


The Caret Portable Lamp designed by Matteo Fogale for &Tradition is inspired by the green-shaded table lamps known as "bankers lamps" found in historic libraries. This portable lamp offers a practical solution to the increasingly blurred boundaries between work and home. Made entirely from lacquered steel, the design features a rounded base and a long, pyramid-shaped top that emits a soft, diffused light. The lamp comes in two contemporary colors: Dark Burgundy and Silk Gray and has dimmable settings.

&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.
