A 70s icon recreated
The past often produces the most modern designs; Phister is a good example of this.
The lamp was designed by Hans Due in the 1970s, but it's hard to believe when you see this relaunch:
Where the on-off button used to make an audible 'click', it has now become a quiet touch button with a built-in dimmer.
Where there used to be a socket with a light bulb, you now only see an LED light behind an opal glass.
Where there used to be a cable, now there is only a plug for a charging cable for charging the Phister. The small diode displays whether the Phister is charged or needs power. The diode will light green and red respectively.
These updates only help to emphasise how modern Hans Due's design is: The design is the only thing we haven't touched.
A wonderful, modern design
Because even though we have updated the technical details of the Phister, the lamp will be recognisable to anyone who knows the original.
The design itself is exactly the same as Hans Due's version from the 1970s.
You can still turn the outer part of the Phister and choose where to direct the light.
And just like the original, Phister doubles as a wall lamp. The bottom of the lamp has two holes for hanging. Screws are not included. Phister is a rechargeable lamp with a charging time of 8 hours. On a full charge, it can last for up to 15 hours.
