Hand Utility lamp producing direct and diffuse light.
Mayday Anniversary by Konstantin Grcic. Signed by Konstantin Grcic and presented with the “Compasso d’Oro” award, Mayday is a lamp suitable for multiple uses and locations: it can be positioned on a table, placed on the floor, or suspended, thanks to the practical handle, which also acts as a cord reel.
Mayday Anniversary comes boxed in special packaging honouring of the 20th Anniversary of the iconic lamp. The mentioned packaging is in the shape of a toolbox and bears a sticker with a progressive number corresponding to the number on the lamp.
With only 2020 pieces of the limited edition lamp produced, all of them are numbered, as the year of Anniversary. The material is different from the original version. Instead of Polypropylene, the special edition is made from tumbled diecast aluminium with natural anodized finishing.
Each handle has engraved the exclusive and unique progressive serial number for each piece plus the designer’s signature. The incision was made by traditional handcrafted mechanical punching.
The lamp has a hook / handle and the cable can be wound around the handle, and an on/off switch is located on side of the handle.
