In a few weeks, Brooklyn’s Juniper studio will release the M Lamp, an irresistibly glossy portable lamp created by British designer David Irwin. A hit on the 2013 design fair circuit, and already an award winner, M Lamp takes its form from 19th Century miners’ lanterns, standing erect, and equipped with a convenient carrying handle. A mere 9 inches tall, M Lamp is powered by a lithium battery which provides up to 18 hours’ illumination—and which lights up automatically during a power outage. All that, and a color range that includes a luscious, retro-inspired orange. We smell a bestseller.
