Product description

Floor lamp with direct and indirect light. Diffuser and rod made of fibreglass–based composite material and liquid coated. Translucent polycarbonate upper diffuser disc, PMMA lower diffuser disc with polyprismatic internal surface. Epoxy powder coated metal round base. Supplied with 4 counter–weights to be inserted in the purpose–provided seat above the diffuser to adjust its height. For LED version the circuit boards were purpose–designed by Foscarini, to achieve a superior level of color rendering (CRI) and retaining the same colour temperature as a halogen light source (Kelvin). The two LED circuit boards are installed on an aluminium disc that acts as a dissipator, and the upper board is protected by a small PMMA disc. Additional arc–extending rods available upon request; the black cable is fitted with a dimmer which can be used both to adjust the level of luminous intensity gradually or as the ON/OFF switch.
