Diva Lamp and Music System

The Diva, designed by Dante Donegani and Giovanni Lauda, is a two in one solution that should appeal to your inner Whitney Houston: a LED bedside light with a music system specifically designed for the iPod. When closed, the Diva gives no insight of exactly what it is, an iconic metal sculpture. But lift the light arm open and it reveals a bright and efficient LED lighting source and an iPod dock...

This Diva is dressed anodized, screen perforated aluminum which hints at the FM radio and four speaker system hidden within (aluminium domes with neodymium magnets of 6watts per channel). An iPod or iPhone connects using a retractable docking station drawer, compatible with all standard 30 pin connector models, and the red LED display offers basic radio and operational information.

Not that you would likely be needing it, considering the Diva's most likely location and use would be bedside, but there's an infrared remote that controls every function, including iPod and radio controls. The Diva offers an audio mini jack for connection of any additional mp3 or portable CD player, a computer, while a USB slot allows for direct play from a flash drive. There's even the option to hook up additional speakers.

Like what you see? Well expect to part with about $593 for the joy of having this Diva's acquaintance, available in white, black or anodized black at Made In Design.
