“Design often stems from the little, important needs of life,” says designer Emiliana Martinelli. “In fact, the idea of a lamp like Frog came to me when, one day, I had no way of lighting up the bushes and foliage of the trees in a garden. I wanted an easy-to-install spotlight, perhaps a portable one, that would pick out specific points, but it wasn't in my catalogue. This is how the Frog spotlight came into being.”
The body of the lamp in painted aluminum, lightweight and tough at the same time, is roto molded in polyethylene and comes in three colors (petrol blue, yellow and black). Equipped with a LED light and three different light beams (narrow, medium and wide), Frog is the 2020 novelty by Matinelli Luce designed for outdoors, adjustable and mountable on either ground or wall to illuminate a garden, tree, patio or the exterior of the house.
“I sought to combine design and technology in a simple, functional, cheerful device. Even its name,” points out Martinelli, “is inspired by the location and shape of a large frog, standing on the ground, looking into the distance with its goggle eyes, just the way Frog projects its light.”
