Uto Outdoor Lamp
You can hang it from the ceiling, or from a tree. It can dangle from a pillar, like an exposed cable. It sneaks into the foliage, or clings to a wall. It can be twisted around a tree trunk. Perfect for kids (or to feel like kids again), Uto is a lamp that suggests play: it can be looped, suspended, attached, fastened… it adapts to forms and spaces. Uto is made of silicon rubber: an appealing material, soft to the touch, resistant to impact, indestructible. The design is innovative and reassuring at the same time. With Uto, it is possible to insert lighting points in a flexible way, establishing a dialogue with their surroundings: static structural elements, buildings, urban furnishings; but also natural things, trees, ivy.
Uto has been designed to be weatherproof: the bell protects the plug, while the polycarbonate screen – a single rigid piece – covers the light bulb, permitting the passage of direct light. A hook is supplied for attachment to the wall.

There are two conditions which this design studio sets to work on a project: having fun and never repeating themselves.
Lagranja – design for companies and friends – is an international multidisciplinary design studio in charge of interiors, outfitting and product design. Founded by Gerard Sanmartí and Gabriele Schiavon, it is also active in education and research. In Uto, the studio created together with Foscarini a new type of illuminating object, a soft, high-tech and flexible item in both its use and its setting.
