In lighting, we have come a long way in a short time, and with the breakthrough of LED technology, we are yet experiencing another revolution. Looking into the future, it is always wise to remember the past.

Some objects, though no longer used and obsolete today, are still so familiar to all of us it seems we never lived without them. The oil lamp is one of these objects, which now exist only in our memory [ricordo in Italian].

With a fully charged battery, the lamp burn 4 to 100 hours, depending on the light intensity. Thanks to the elegant touch dimmer, you can dim the light smoothly. The LED's have a life span of 25 years, and a light output of 250lum (or equivalent to the old 25W).
