White gray and black | Fuorisalone 2011

It is not very often I make a post about something I have seen on other blogs but this time I just had to mail Molo Design to ask if I could use their pictures.  Because after seeing the post about these Laterns at Contemporist I just had to show you these little beauties as they are so me!  Looking at the pictures I see my favorite colours in a row.. White Grey and Black. I just love the shape of them and how they are presented…

Hobo Lantern and felt bag… from Molo Design
hobo lantern is a portable luminary inspired by the urban nightlife of Zona Tortona during Milan’s Design Week.  This portable bag of light is a piece of pragmatic poetry that can be used as a functional shoulder bag or purely as a lantern. Perfect for drawing extra visibility to pedestrians and cyclists on city streets with car traffic or a romantic walk in the moonlight. 

At home you can choose to plug hobo into a regular power outlet or use the portable battery pack included. The form of hobo lantern originated with hobo felt bag which is made from natural felted wool and available in natural heathered grey or black. The geometrical form of  hobo felt bag + hobo lantern is composed of two squares that transition from the elliptical base to meet in a straight line at the bag’s opening.
