Phare by Umiar

The concept is simple, an approachable portable LED light. It is handy, lightweight, easily transportable, and with its rechargeable battery it can be used in almost any setting. Phare acts as a means for people to bring some light along with them. Its value lies in its universality. It is charged using a USB-C connector and has a 10-hour battery life, allowing it to be used freely both indoors and out. It can be either free-standing or hanging.
The stance that the light takes, weather standing at a dynamic angle or hanging from an edge it is a reminder that the lamp is not meant to be fixed in any one spot. The lighting is diffuse, illuminating a space gently without overwhelming it. The lamp is ideal for work, leisure, or social events. Phare acts as a means for people to bring some light along with them.
The design of Phare is a result of a process of reduction. There is no superfluous or decorative elements but only the function of it gives it its formal language.
