Ambientec presents the new portable lamp "Cachalot" designed by Yoshiki Matsuyama during Milano Design Week, 2022.
Yoshiki Matsuyama’s new portable lamp evokes the majestic and gracious form of a whale as it diffuses a sensation of peace and beauty throughout a space.
Cachalot is a sculptural light, a fine example of the synthesis of cutting-edge illumination technology, precise artisan craftsmanship and high-quality materials that sets Ambientec apart, along with its poetic design.

As if the presence of the single whale in the dark cold ocean surrounded by silence, can bring calmness and warmth to the heart. As if the passing of time itself has slowly changed. “Cachalot” is a sculptural lighting object that draws inspiration from the formative elements of life in nature.
Designer / Yoshiki Matsuyama
A rod (tubular LED light source) emits a delicate and intimate light that symbolizes life. The gentle, majestic form of the sperm whale and its softly textured shade are lit by an original light source developed by Ambientec for Cachalot.
The symbolic light that emerges from the space, harmonizing with the extremely fine details of the frame, created by precise metalworking.
The base is die-cast zinc with a copper plated finish. The lamp shade is made of pure, crystal-clear and durable acrylic, available in clear or dark gray.
Cachalot is like all Ambientec pieces, it invites us to develop a genuine emotional relationship with it. It will gently bring calmness.
