- Alfredo Häberli
Argentinian and Switzerland-based designer Alfredo Häberli is the maker behind the wonderfully simple Nox lamp for lighting company Astep. Named after the Latin word for 'night', Nox encourages the user to move it around to embellish and brighten up a space both indoor and out. Central to the design of Nox is a wireless charging system with induction technology developed by Astep that enables this sophisticated lamp to be free of any cables or plug for a clean modern aesthetic. This also makes Nox highly portable, so it can be deployed anywhere in the home or garden.
Nox is composed of four elements: a charging base, an anodised aluminium body containing the charging system, a hand-blown opaline glass diffuser, and a simple handle. Featuring a touch dimmer, the lamp can provide ample light for reading but also a cosy soft light for a dinner party when dimmed.
