There's nothing more practical than a flex-free lamp for lighting your garden dinner tables.

Design Alfredo Chiaramonte & Marco Marin, Emu
The name states its slightly vintage shape while its manufacturing mixes materials: plastic base with a poly­carbonate shade covered in synthetic fabric. It uses LEDs and its rechargeable battery lasts seven hours.
Chez JBonet (Nice), Home & Jardin (Beaulieu-sur-Mer), Sifas (Antibes), Autour de la Terre (Cannes), Les Jardins du Sud (Mouans-Sartoux) et Home Store Balitrand (Cannes-La Bocca)

Design, Tristan Lohner Fermob
The basic form is modelled on the 19th-century standard lamp but this design zings in energising colours. The button on the base is for setting the temperature of the light, warm or cold.

Design Ferruccio Laviani, Kartell
This intensely glamorous lamp hints at Art Deco style through a base seemingly carved out of a block of precious metal, its rather geometrical lines surmounted by a faceted shade.
Chez Kartell (Nice)
