Tala is a British award-winning lighting brand based on Vyner Street in east London. Founded in 2013, the company specialises in low-energy LED lighting products that recreate the warm glow of traditional incandescent bulbs.
Tala is founded on the premise that good design can help mitigate climate change. Tala launched its first collection in 2015 and three years on boasts a team of almost 50 and operates in 18 markets globally. To maximise its impact Tala donates a percentage of its revenue to reforestation programmes in the UK, the US and around the world.
The way tala make lamps is central to their commitment to sustainability. All products are designed in the U.K. and manufactured by trusted partners. The in-house Design and Engineering teams oversee everything from the driver technology through to the glass moulds.
Magma is the first sustainable lighting solution from Tala and MAGNA Glaskeramik. Designed to accentuate the soft diffusion of light created by Tala’s new dim-to-warm Sphere light sources, Magma combines matte black aluminium and steel frames with translucent, Polar White 12mm double side polished discs made from Glaskeramik.
The Magma range explores the zeitgeist of excessive consumption and the disconnect between
people and the products that surround them. Encouraging tactility and interaction, the suspended
discs rotate to allow for custom orientation, either exposing the Sphere light sources, or shielding
them for an ambient diffused glow.
The series comprises three products:
1 Magma Suspension
Encouraging tactility and interaction, the suspended discs rotate to allow for custom orientation, either exposing the Sphere light sources, or shielding them for an ambient diffused glow.
2 Magma Floor
This elegant, ornamental floor lamp is fitted with three new Sphere bulbs which, when dimmed, change the colour temperature from cool to warm, mimicking natural light sources and attuning to the body’s circadian rhythm.
3 Magma Table
Fitted with a singular Sphere bulb, Magma Table is a modest yet striking desk or table lamp that creates a soft ambient light, or rotated to focus light on a specific source.
Tala co-founder, Joshua Ward
“As a studio, we are excited about the potential of the circular economy model and what we can do at Tala to help advance it. With our new Magma range, we were searching for a beautiful upcycled material to accent and diffuse our new Sphere light sources. There’s a unique depth and character to each disk of Glaskeramik that creates a soft glow and brings a timeless quality to the pieces.”
Partner which are interested to add the Magma series to their portfolio, can contact us already. Sales will start in autumn this year.
