The “super magnet”, spherical in shape and made of “rare earth” comoulded with a thermoplastic elastomer, acts as a joint and allows you to direct the torch and slide it vertically along the rod. The black cable, fitted with an ON/OFF pedal, runs visibly along the inside of the rod.

Concept

A lamp with an elemental and bold look. The invisible force of a magnet joins the supporting rod to the illuminating body, allowing you to direct the light cast by Magneto at leisure, just like a torch.
