Table lamp designed around its 8W LED lighting source. Unlike previous LED sources this LED supplies an excellent quality of light, variable in intensity and in color temperature (from cold to warm light through a simple rotation of the round diffusor). As the operating temperature strongly affects LED lifespan, this lamp head is designed perforated in order to dissipate heat and at the same time to be gripped and oriented without burning one’s hand. Attention is focused on the reduction of material, dimension, formal complexity and visual impact. Balance mechanics of the arms are deliberately unemphasized. To facilitate end of life recycling (although LED lifespan is 50000/60000 hours) the lamp is built with a single material, extruded aluminum for the arms and die-cast aluminum for the articulated junctions, the head and the base.
