Toobe is available in both floor and table lamp versions. It was conceived from the idea of using a PMMA extruded tube, which creates a surprising smoked effect thanks to an innovative colouring technology. With simple and modern lines, Toobe diffuses a soft and warm light. It comes equipped with an energy-saving bulb that lasts up to ten times longer and consumes five times less energy than a conventional incandescent bulb. The handle in the lamp body makes the pole functional and easy to move.
