SOLAR HYBRID

The goal is to have a small portable lamp, very versatile in its use.

It is magnetic, clinging, hanging, and is used everywhere, the expression of mobility for light.

It is recharged on its base by two solar panels but can also be connected to the mains, making it a real hybrid product .

Hybrid mainly because the amount of sunshine differs depending on the season and country.

Concept Design (Pool). Market launch in 2013.
