UMA Sound Lantern Mini
Taking light and music on the go is even easier with the mini version of Pablo's portable lantern UMA. It fuses state-of-the-art LED technology with 360° high-fidelity surround sound and even allows for a rockin' shindig with a "party mode" feature that allows up to 24 units to be paired via Bluetooth. Touch-sensitive volume control and 2 soft-light settings help set the perfect mood—and volume and music selection can also be managed from any mobile device. With up to 20 hours of wireless play per charge, UMA has a handy attached leather carrying handle and comes with a canvas travel bag.

“Lighting is undergoing a revolution at the moment,” says Venezuelan-born designer/entrepreneur Pablo Pardo, who’s leading the disruption with the mix of cutting-edge technology and always-cool minimalism behind his signal brand Pablo. As he puts it, nowadays, “you can build smarts right into the lamp.” Internationally recognized, the San Francisco company was started 20-odd years ago and now Pablo racks up design awards regularly for its more than 40 technology-driven and elegantly sparse collections worldwide.
The lighting industry thought-leader credits his upbringing in a family of artists and engineers for the always forward-facing Pablo style, which embraces innovations such as LEDs and flat-panel light. “Lighting is also shrinking in size: LEDs are so small that you can put them almost anywhere,” he adds. “So the standard iconography of a lamp with a shade is being upended.”
