Reconnect with the natural environment to feel good and, at home, surround ourselves with plants: contact with greenery, woods, flowers has multiple beneficial effects on our health and mood. So I decided to set the new lamps among prickly pears, banana trees, cacti ... in the Mediterranean greenhouse of the historic Vivaio dei Fratelli Ingegnoli in Milan. Ample space between the indoor and outdoor lights are rechargeable, versatile, light and wireless, with LED technology and battery to be connected to the computer or battery pack, to be moved freely.

Siro indoor table lamp composed of a lens and a frontal disk that releases grazing light from inside, thanks to a very slim LED light source; the inner cap is in white, the outside in satin-finish gold; designed by Marta Perla for Oluce.
