Nightingale is a porcelain body lantern with a leather handle, produced in collaboration with Rosenthal. The traditional lampshade is rotated by 90°, turning the usual interaction between the light fitting and reflector upside down. The delicate porcelain body distantly recalls the look of an antique lantern. The leather band is available in three natural color variants, serving as a handle that can be used to change the position of the light and add a striking, warm contrast between different materials.
The porcelain body is also produced with a rosè hue, combined with the bordeaux leather strap.
