Winkel w127 Desk Lamp by Dirk Winkel for Wästberg
Berlin-based designer Dirk Winkel has created the Winkel w127 desk lamp for Swedish lighting company Wästberg. The slim desk lamp is manufactured of solid fiberglass reinforced bio-polyamide and it is recyclable. The mechanism used in the lamp body to adjust the height and direction of the light is based on micro gas springs which are widely used in the automobile and electronics industry and have lifespan of more than 50,000 compressions and give exceptionally good movement patterns.
Here is a description from the producer, “The shade is adjustable for universal direction of the light. The light technology is based on a highly energy-efficient multichip LED solution. This consists of a cluster of diodes instead of several separate diodes. By using multichip LED, so called multi-shadows are avoided and a very even light pattern is achieved. The diode is cooled efficiently with an advanced cooling construction. The fixture is equipped with both a reflector and a diffuser lens, to give optimal light distribution and light quality. In addition, there is a glare protection system to minimize both direct and indirect glare. Winkel w127 is equipped with a seamless dimmer that is operated by an IR-switch; a built-in timer automatically turns the lamp off after five hours. Winkel w127 is available with base, clamp or pin.”
