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.
