A Modern LED Lantern and Flashlight . . . perfect for a roof garden!

We have two lighting needs in our roof garden: a flashlight for late-night work on the plants, and an ambient fun light for the center of the table for late-night celebrations. I found this modern, elegant solution at ICFF, the contemporary furniture fair. The Obus ($250) is a re-chargeable outdoor light that will last up to 25 hours!

The designer explains: “Obus seamlessly transitions between ambient and directional light to illuminate spaces indoors and out . . . Once lifted, Obus casts a concentrated beam through its base to direct light where needed. Designed to inspire creative use outdoors, the durable acrylic glass construction and rechargeable battery conquer the elements.”

Order the Obus here. The bummer is that it doesn’t ship until August. Read more about Obus and the industrial designer Peter Stathis on Inhabitat and  Unplggd.
