Using Led technology, the attention must be focused not only on energy
consumption and light efficiency, but above all on the quality and quantity of the
distribution of the light. In fact the advantage of the Led is that it emits 100% light fl
ow into the direct hemisphere, eliminating dispersion and waste in other
directions.This means that in order to obtain illuminance of 1250 lux on the work
surface, with an incandescent light source a power of 100W is necessary, while with
a Led source 10W is suffi cient, with a 90% energy saving. Base and cantilevered
arms in polished aluminium; diffuser in matt anodised aluminum; joints and
supports in polished aluminium. System of spring balancing.
