Light for long summer nights
As soon as the days get longer, everyday life shifts outdoors.
Das eigene Zuhause und vor allem der Outdoor area is valued much more in recent years. Many manufacturers of outdoor collections have responded to this trend, resulting in a wide variety of outdoor furniture. But above all, the right lighting should not be missing in the design of the terrace. Only a pleasant light makes a room look really inviting and cozy. So why not create this atmosphere outside!
Here we tell you which products our consultants prefer to use in order to make this wish come true.
Light has the ability to increase our quality of life
In summer, much of life takes place in your own garden or on your own balcony. Here the family meets and it is celebrated with friends. All the more important that a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere prevails.
Here, the right outdoor lighting brings life to the nighttime darkness and turns warm summer nights into unforgettable moments to remember.
Because one thing is certain, light is not only needed for working, reading or learning. You also need light to relax. Only with the right lighting can you create a pleasant, warm atmosphere in which you can feel good. Light has a great impact on the well-being of us humans and therefore plays a major role in our lives.
For outdoor use, there are numerous lights with different, expressive designs. These can be easily combined with the perhaps already existing garden furniture or even integrated into their environment as such.
Not all luminaires are the same
The Meridiano by Marset not only provides light for your outdoor space, but can also be used as a stool or side table. Designed by Jordi Vilardell and Meritxell Vidal, this lamp can easily be converted into a stool or side table without any effort, so that all your guests can find a place and enjoy the time together. In addition, the lamp gives off a cozy and warm light that gives long summer nights a very special feeling.
Due to the graceful shape and the refined rod structure, the lamp not only looks wonderfully playful, it also produces a great shadow play while providing a diffuse light distribution.
However, if you are looking for a more straightforward, cool style, the decision will undoubtedly fall on the EMPTY, which also comes from MARSET and was designed by Xuclà. Due to its shape and color, it fits effortlessly into any environment. The clearly defined corners and edges give the lamp an architectural look. Due to its concrete look, the luminaire harmonizes both in nature and in cities.
World-renowned manufacturers such as, TRIBÙ, RODA and DEDON, in addition to outdoor furniture, also produce outdoor lamps, which visually complete the picture at the end.
The battery lamp POLLOW by RODA is visually comparable to a pillow and looks light and transparent due to the light fabric cover. Due to the integrated loops, the lamp can be easily carried from one place to another and gives off warm as well as cold light. So it is excellent for warm summer nights.
The lamp MONSIEUR TRICOT of TRIBÙ is also powered by a rechargeable battery, which allows to change the location of the lamp without further ado. The net that covers the entire lamp reminds of a fishing net, which is associated with summer and sea.
The lamp EYELET by DEDON is also a real eye-catcher. This hand-woven outdoor lamp produces a great shadow play in their environment, which stimulates the imagination. In addition, it charges all by itself through solar energy, so you no longer have to worry about charging the battery yourself and can change the location of the battery light at any time and without any problems.
„The right outdoor lighting for the patio is just as important as the well planned lounge area.“

Luminaires are sociable creatures
Whether in the house or in the garden, a single light alone is usually not enough to achieve the desired result, the desired mood. For this reason, it makes sense to combine a selection of different light sources. Thus, to the possibly already existing wall and path lights great floor and pendant lights can be ideally supplemented to create a great mood even in cozy sitting areas or at the garden table. For this purpose, the lights of the manufacturers MARSET, VIBIA, FOSCARINI and many more are excellent.
Both the JAIMA and the CALA of the manufacturer MARSET can be fitted as a standing and also as a pendant version excellent in the most diverse outdoor areas. In terms of appearance, they could not be more different, but they have one thing in common in any case: they give off a wonderfully warm, diffused light through their fabric shades.

Dimmable luminaires are particularly convenient, as they can adapt to the illumination level of natural light. This is an effective solution for battery lights in particular, as it allows you to save battery power by not having to use the light at full strength all the time. This automatically extends the battery life of the luminaire. But also the atmosphere can be changed quickly and easily with dimmable lamps.

So auch im BereiWe at Mathes deal a lot with the topic of sustainability and are therefore very keen to take this into account in as many areas as possible.
