Volume LED Story
Inspired by the buttons on an original stereo amplifier from the 1980s, GamFratesi has created the Volume table lamp. Allow yourself to be fascinated by a seemingly forgotten, but significant gesture, where one via a mechanical rotation of a button gains an intuitive understanding of the function - to increase or decrease the volume. With Volume, you will rediscover this direct, responsive feeling. The lampshade is about the size of a palm and thus invites one to move it around and use the lamp in an informal way. One increases or decreases the intensity of the light quite easily - by a simple rotation of the hand on the shade.
The small LED table lamp is made of die-cast aluminium and acrylic. Equipped with three Osram 1W LEDs, the lamp emits a pleasant light 360 degrees around and out through the opening at the top of the lamp. The LEDs burn for 50,000 hours on average, without any maintenance being required.
The Volume is suitable for a side table, bookshelves, bedside table, desk or any work surface.
The Volume is available in three colors:
- Blackbird: A blue-black color
- Fade to Grey: A light grey color
- Evergreen: Petroleum colored

Lightyears does not put just any lamp into production. The most important requirement is a fusion of form and function, and that the lamp provides optimum illumination. Every single detail must have its own purpose, and not exist purely for the sake of design.

But it also proves their commitment to being light years ahead!
All the production is handmade by experienced craftsman.
Scandinavian functionalism and clear communication of the ideas behind the design are the key words for GamFratesi's design. The design duo was formed in 2006, and consists of the Danish architect Stine Gam and the Italian architect Enrico Fratesi.
GamFratesi's design takes its creative power from a fusion of tradition and innovation along with an experimental approach to the selected materials and techniques. With their cross-cultural background, Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi thus draw from both classic Danish design and the tradition of craftsmanship, and the classic Italian intellectual and conceptual approach. With their minimalist, refined and expressive design form, they are able to tell a unique story with their design.
In the process of creating their first lamp for Lightyears, GamFratesi has worked with a conceptual and functional approach to lighting. The function is fully underlined by allowing the light dimming function to play a key role in the shaping the design. GamFratesi chose to name their designs for Lightyears based on the name universe "Radio".
