The Gaku Wireless LED Battery Light was designed by Nendo for the brand Flos.
Nendo, the Japanese design studio run by Sato Oki, was driven by the idea of creating a lighting source that doubles as an organiser. The Gaku Wireless LED Battery Light received an honourable mention at the 2017 Milan Design Week in the categories of Interactive Lighting Project and Interior Architectural Illumination.
In Japanese, Gaku means frame. The Gaku Wireless LED Battery Light has a square solid ash frame which holds the freestanding LED lamp with battery. It measures 12cm in depth, 35cm in width, and 35cm in height. The diffuser, made of polycarbonate, has a diameter of 11cm. Recharged by induction, this luminaire has an energy efficiency rating of A++ and can be placed anywhere that requires lighting. The frame on its own is a charging station for smart devices with QI Wireless technology. The dimmer offers 4 levels of intensity while the battery can last up to 6 hours when set at the maximum light intensity. An indicator light shows the amount of charge remaining. Because the base is magnetic, the user can tilt the lamp to adjust the flow of light or attach metallic accessories.
