Metalarte is set to launch a floating lamp to illuminate swimming pools during the night, which will feature at this year’s Milan Furniture Fair. Designed by Hector Serrano, Waterproof lamp took a year to develop. Combining the principle behind the buoy with a lampshade, the battery operated light gives six hours of power. The lamps have been created from a ‘polyphenylene natural mould’ and is part of the Metalab series. Serrano says the lamps are designed to be put to use by ‘owners of swimming pools and hotels’.
