HAY’s Pao Portable table lamp is part of the Pao collection, a range of minimalist luminaires conceived by Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. Resembling a tent, the Pao lamps are named after Mongolian yurts, which in Japanese are called pao. When designing the collection, Fukawasa thought of the yurts specifically at night, when they glow in the middle of the darkness, illuminated and inviting. He wanted the Pao luminaires to create a similar warm glow and a pleasant atmosphere to the decor.
The Pao Portable, as its name implies, is cordless and can easily be moved around. Its clean-lined look is completed by an acrylic diffuser, which keeps the light source hidden from view and the shape of the luminaire visually clean. The Pao Portable table lamp illuminates without glare, making it the perfect ambience booster for all spaces from private living rooms to public lounges – and you can also carry it with you to the garden or balcony, for example!
