Portable LED lighting: Bellhop by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby for Flos

Bellhop is a battery-powered lamp designed for Flos by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby.

Said to be modeled after the hatted hotel porter, Bellhop uses an LED edge-lighting technology, wherein a flat disc is lit with a ring of LEDs around its edges, to ensure an evenly lit surface.

Bellhop lasts 24 hours on a single charge and re-charges in three via USB-C. A hidden push button lets users dim it down to 10 percent.

The first Bellhop was a traditional blue, originally designed to outfit the Parabola restaurant at the London Design Museum. Since then, Barber and Osgerby expanded its palette to include white, grey, burnt orange and dark brown.
