Cap (illuminated) | DFTS Factory

• January 14, 2011

After the successful launch of the Cap stool from Sweden‘s design provocateurs DFTS Factory, January 2011 sees the release of an add-on lighting solution which gives even more ways to enjoy the piece.

Each Cap package will now include a special light holder, which lets you turn the Cap from a stool into a light at the flick of a switch.

It’s a logical progression of the design, adding a little extra value to the piece that also makes things a bit more fun for the user.

The light sits on a little holder, while any excess cable can be wound inside Cap to keep things clean or outside if you’re feeling a little more haphazard.

It’s also good to play around with the kind of bulb you use, as the translucent nature of the plastic Cap gives some interesting scope in terms of colour and shadow.

From now on, two different versions of Cap will be available. The first option, Cap (opaque), will include the light holder as standard. The second option Cap (Illuminated) will include the light holder, cord, plug and light fitting but this is only available to European customers.
