Luca Casarotto of Cosca Design [2] in Northern Italy [3] sent us over some images of their new Penta lamp. Made of recycled polyethylene, the lamp folds and contorts to create the optimum lighting for your mood. While open, the lamp’s light diffuses to fill a room and when folded shut, it can be concentrated for tasks and spotlighting. And the lamp comes flat-packed for fuel economy to boot!

Luca Casarotto, along with Pietro Costa, is a founding principal of Cosca Design. The dynamic group of young designers split their time between products, graphics, web and publishing. Casarotto created the Penta lamp at a workshop by Italian lighting design icons, Foscarini [4].
