The latest from SOWDEN, the brand of George Sowden, is the PL1 Portable Lamp, a small rechargeable lamp composed of a painted aluminium stand and a shade made from silicone—a material that George Sowden discovered is a great diffuser of light, long-lasting and easy to clean. The light has a continuous dimmer setting, controlled by pressing lightly the top of the lamp. The shade is also removable for easy cleaning. Charges via USB, with cable included, for four hours of light at maximum brightness when fully charged. Use the SOWDEN PL1 Portable Lamp wherever you need extra light, from your dining table to your bedside table to your outdoor space. It measures 9.5h x 5"diam. 160 lumens.
