These days we are all expected to be extremely dynamic and on the move, and lamps are adapting accordingly. They are being stripped of wires, fitted with rechargeable batteries or battery packs, or else can be charged through a computer (via a micro USB connection) for greater autonomy. These are solutions that prove useful also in outdoor contexts. In such cases they can have a silicon body that closes up for easy transportation or one made of rustproof painted aluminium to illuminate outdoor dinner parties. The latter take their inspiration from old-fashioned lanterns, and have 360° rotating diffusers.
