THE SOFT LIGHT OF CACHALOT SLOWS DOWN TIME AND ILLUMINATES THE ATMOSPHERE. AMBIENTEC’S new lamp helps us understand and protect the oceans.

Yokohama, Giappone – May 2022 – It seems to surface gently from the depths of the ocean to bring its warm and tender light into our living spaces. Between light design and marine biology: Ambientec presents “Cachalot”, the new portable lamp designed by Yoshiki Matsuyama.

 

Starting from its very name, the piece evokes the fluid and majestic image of a whale. Cachalot is an evocative and symbolic object, avoiding any cartoonish or overly-literal reference to the cetacean figure, while perfectly grasping its essential and familiar form. This portable lamp can be freely placed on a shelf, among books, on an end table, or surrounded by other favorite objects. Like all Ambientec pieces, it invites us to develop a genuine emotional relationship with it.

“As a child, I was enchanted by the whales and cetaceans in picture books and adventure novels. Today as a designer I find the shape of these ocean creatures fascinating: powerful and fluid, yet also warm and gentle. It is this majesty imbued with sweetness that I hoped to convey with Cachalot. Its soft light spreads into the night and makes time seem to slow down – just like how a whale moves through the depths of a silent sea, creating an atmosphere of peace and quiet,” explains designer Yoshiki Matsuyama.
