Mathmos has added another lamp to its Mathmos Mobiles range of portable and rechargeable ‘kinetic-lights’. Aduki fits in the palm of a hand, features a zinc alloy base, a smiley face and can even be hung from a detachable cord. Designed in-house, each lamp moves through a series of kaleidoscopic colours and a button allows the user to stop at any one they choose. It is available in three colour ‘waves’: blue to green, red to blue and green to red and is scheduled to launch in the spring. The Aduki name is derived from a bean used in ceremonial dishes in Japan and China. The lamp will be available in the spring.
