Plane Soft Light

The Austrian architecture and design firm Architects has developed this little wireless rechargeable light for the bathroom. The light is illuminated by hyperbright LED’s and resists water. Gerhard Abel, the designer, is one member of the trio, which also includes Martina P?ringer and Paul Linsbauer. The three bring together backgrounds in architecture, landscape and industrial design, and have produced work in all three areas. The Soft Light (Weiches Licht) is featured in this years Pure Austrian Design (PAD) book, along with a stellar group of other emerging Austrian designers.
