British designer David Irwin has officially launched the M Lamp for Juniper

David Irwinhas  officially launched the M Lamp for Juniper after developing the prototype over a period of four years. Powered by an integrated lithium battery, the lamp can be easily transported, making it ideal for modern living and on-­the-­go lifestyles. In its standard mode, the lamp provideds ample brightness for late­ night work or for reading in bed.

It also features a handle for carrying and hanging, with reference to a miner’s lamp, and a rotating conical reflector for directing light.

Irwin initially developed the M Lamp prototype in 2011 as a result of seed funding from the Design Event Presents programme. "The premise was to create a task light, which re­appropriated the mining lamp both in its form and crucially its functional nature," Irwin states.

He then sent the prototype to Juniper which caught the eye of Shant Madjarian, founder of Juniper. "The concept was greatly attractive to me, and on hearing David’s interpretation and vision, it occurred to me that the lights true tie to the old mining lamps would be its function as a portable lamp; a vision David had shared from the beginning having designed the lamp with a handle," he says.
