Introducing Pierre Charpin’s New PC Lamps
Inspired by the tulip-shaped shade of his iconic PC Task Lamp, French designer Pierre Charpin and HAY have created an extended family of new PC lights, which includes the PC Pendant, the PC Table Lamp, and the PC Portable.
With their sleek silhouettes and complex engineering, the PC Lamps are a masterpiece in clever design: Pierre Charpin has kept each model as simple as possible, ensuring that any technical components are out of view.
Available in a range of colours and finishes, the PC Lamps have something for everyone, bringing a touch of unique elegance to any environment, from the bedroom to the dining room or office.
Pierre Charpin’s PC Portable Lamp is a refined and portable freestanding lamp for indoor and outdoor use. Constructed in robust plastic and featuring a matte scratch- and water- resistant finish, its battery-powered design gives the freedom and flexibility to move it anywhere.
“The idea of the original PC Lamp was to create a light that contains technology, without making that technology visible. You might call it an anti-high-tech object.” – Pierre Charpin
The light source is hidden from view by a polycarbonate diffuser, available with both downlight and ambient output options, depending on the desired use. The PC Portable Lamps are available in a variety of colour variants and are ideal for table lighting in domestic environments, as well as at cafés, restaurants and other public areas.
“The mission with this collection was to make objects that are simple in form, and that can be easily integrated into very different environments.” – Pierre Charpin
