Adjustable lighting is central to the design and construction of Takeru. The idea was to design a series of lamps with flexible adjustment of light to the illuminated surface. Thus, Takeru is created around a pointed light source and a reflector that ensures maximum illumination.
Takeru’s base is die-cast, which gives the slender lamp extra ballast. The armature – which is also moulded – consists of a shade, a handle, a ball joint and two bushings. The specially-designed bushings allow smooth and flexible adjustment of the light. A reflector is also mounted in the shade that directs and diffuses the light. The bottom of the handle is fitted with ABS plastic. This stops heat from rising to the top of the handle, which is used to direct the light. The switch and handle are finished in matt chrome, and the remaining parts are lacquered.
Directed, diffuse light is Takeru’s trademark. The adjustable shade is fitted with a symmetrical reflector that at once brightens and softens the light.
