Mimicking the perfect texture and symmetry of silk cocoons, the minimal and delicate looking Cocoon Lantern is deceptively tough. Manufactured from modern plastics and combined with a solid, buffed teak handle, this outdoor LED light is as much about design as it is about illumination. The lantern creates soft, portable, outdoor mood lighting with the use of an integrated solar or mains charged LED lighting unit.
Danish designer Henrik Pedersen has combined an extensive background in interior lighting with an intimate knowledge of outdoor furniture to create the Ambient Cocoon. Asked about the design influences, Henrik says “My path in design has led me through many parts of the world, many cultures… Light and warmth are always principal parts of the best social environments and the most modest of devices are often the most effective. Here I combine the worlds of simplicity and light to achieve beautiful background illumination”.
