Classic design with modern technology

Last week, the colleagues from Lampenwelt.de approached me and offered me to try a portable LED light with rechargeable battery. Of course I didn’t let them tell me twice and decided to try the Yeelight Candela, which can also be controlled via an app thanks to Bluetooth.
