portable lantern

steel powdercoated, plastic, brass, LED-lighting, jammer
22 x 22 x 39

The lantern revives the romanticising idea of a bonfire from times long before media, where people gathered around and told their tales. The wireless LED-lantern is used as the medium to house the technology, a ‘jammer’ that blocks out cellular reception from phones in a certain radius around it.

The jammer is activated upon turning on the lantern and cannot be switched off separately. Therefore it is impossible for the user(s) to avoid the signal-free bubble around the lantern without leaving this space physically.
