Design Mika Tolvanen, 2013
Polycarbonate, polyethylene
Made in Italy by FontanaArte

Koho is a lamp for outdoors, rechargeable and portable, softly rounded with no sharp corners. Small in size, it can easily be moved and placed exactly where light is needed, with no cables to get in the way. Its name comes from the Finnish word for fishing float. It has a lid, which comes in three different colors (yellow, grey or blue) that holds the light source. Vertical grooves run up and down the polyethylene body.

Koho turns on and off by a touch switch on top of the lid. When on, the lamp has an autonomy of around 7 hours, after which it flashes to signal that the battery needs recharging. If the lamp is not recharged, the drive card in the lid cuts off the power supply to stop the battery from running down completely. A red LED switches off when the battery has fully recharged.

The characteristics of this lamp mean it can be placed on a surface or on the ground, either right way up or on its lid. A simply versatile article for outdoor living: perfect for lighting up a dinner table in the garden or on a terrace, on board a boat or by the pool side.

The Fontana Arte company was formed in 1932 by Gio Ponti under the parent company Luigi Fontana, a leader in advanced glass manufacturing and design. Ponti was a skilled artist in many trades as well as the editor of Domus magazine. He had an intuition to use glass as a distinguishing feature in furniture, lamps and objects. Already designing homes, he could employ this concept in the interior décor. Fontana Arte produced many ornate stained-glass windows in churches, cathedrals, and palaces, including the Duomo of Milan and the Cathedral of Brasilia. Years later, the company has built a name collaborating with respected designers and architects. Fontana Arte continues to evolve and reach out to work with more designers and other companies.
