The Ledtube is turning ten, and it’s still one of the collection’s most functional products: a reading lamp with a light beam that is specifically designed not to bother anyone else in the bed.
It has no glare and its light can be aimed in any direction. It’s so easy to use that it’s almost instinctive and so versatile it can blend in with the surface. The light that takes up no space. And yet, there is always room for improvement, and this year we’re offering a new version of the Ledtube with a USB port built-in, as well as a smaller size, the Ledtube mini. This ingenious lamp has been used to light up rooms in the most prestigious hotels, accompanying guests at the best time of day, when it’s time to relax and read before going to sleep. It’s that time when, almost automatically, we also decide to charge our mobile devices, which is why this latest edition of the Ledtube features a USB port, giving it yet another use. The manual and digital worlds combine under one light.
Born in Santa Coloma de Gramenet, near Barcelona. As a child, his father awoke in him an interest in how things work by fixing objects, playing with small electric motors or light bulbs. He began his studies in the car industry and shortly afterward studied industrial design at the Elisava School in Barcelona, where he began to transition to the world of design.
He came into the world of lighting by chance, and after two years of developing products in other companies in the sector, he joined Marset’s technical department in 2003. He has worked for hand in hand with designers to develop their lamps. This close relationship has allowed him to learn how to maintain the essence of each product, down to the last detail, while providing all his know-how to make the lamps technically impeccable. Over these years, he has developed the technology for many products and has also designed one of the Marset collection’s most iconic items: the Ledtube. This reading lamp offers what may be the most functional design in the collection. It has been on the market for ten years and has been approved by countless hotels. He has been Marset’s technical director for a few years.
