martinelli luce ’toggle’ design by neil poulton, 2021
’toggle’ was designed to be a versatile little nightime reading lamp, able to be mounted in multiple orientations.
the lamp’s signature detail - the ’toggle’ switch - was stolen from gibson’s iconic les paul guitar - the switch which lets you toggle between pickups - now redeployed as an oversized, easy-to-flip on-off switch.
’toggle’ is made of sustainable, recyclable die-cast aluminium, painted in white, anthracite or light grey - with a satin polycarbonate diffuser, led light source and built-in power supply.
the result is a friendly little wall lamp - a tactile product for an increasingly contactless world.
