Rechargeable Mobile lamp Roxxane Light CL

Roxxane Light CL Mobile

Roxxane Lightweight Mobile CL is available in two versions: as a reading lamp (Roxxane Light 101 CL) and as a table lamp (Roxxane Light 52 CL). (Photo: Frank Ockert)

In terms of aesthetics, the minimalist Roxxane Light CL, designed by Rupert Kopp and produced by Nimbus Group, constitutes the archetype of mobile lighting solutions.

The lamp is equipped with a body that emerges forming an angle of 15 degrees with the base, where the battery and electronics are placed. Firmly fixed to the body we find the support for lifting, the most solid design element of the entire lamp.

Roxxane Light CL (CL stands for 'cableless light') can also be charged via a USB-C port. When the battery is fully charged, the lamp provides up to 100 hours of light (from 400 to 600 lumens, or 800 lumens in 'boost' mode), depending on the type of light intensity selected. An easy-to-use display integrated into the base of the lamp shows the charge level and provides constant, but discreet, information on the battery status.
