Portable and rechargeable, FollowMe is the table lamp designed by Inma Bermúdez, just as portable as the camping gas stoves of the last century but with technology and design dating from 2014, which can be used both in and out of doors. 

With an oak handle to hold it by, this small and compact lamp has a tilting shade made from white polycarbonate and it incorporates LED technology with a dimmer to regulate the intensity of the light. 

With FollowMe, this designer broke moulds and made the difficult seem easy, setting out along a route full of designs that have been imitated extensively. 

Inma Bermúdez studied at the Industrial Design School of the CEU Cardenal Herrera University, in Valencia, and completed a year at the School of Applied Sciences and Design of Pforzheim University, Germany. Her professional career in industrial design began in the German studios Idea, Busse Design and Prodesign. 

In 2006, she came into contact with Ikea and joined their design department in Älmhult and, since the following year, 2007, she has lived in Valencia, in a country house some 20 kilometres from the city, surrounded by dogs, chickens, a vegetable garden and with her family close by. 

As the designer explained in an interview with the design firm Marset, with FollowMe she introduced a feminine touch in the brand’s catalogue where, until then, all the lamps had been designed by men.

In the FollowMe lamp Marset, with very high technological standards, has a warm appliance that works by means of an incorporated rechargeable battery. 

The same design conjugates technology, style and a designer product. A pioneer of portable lighting, Bermúdez’s lamp has already become a design icon. 

For its design, Inma Bermúdez took her inspiration from the catalogues produced by this well-known company in the seventies, specifically the firm’s Flass model, and with it she won the prestigious Red Dot Award for product design, organized by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, in 2016.
