Cinquanta Floor Design Vittoriano Vigano for Astep
The Cinquanta floor Lamp is designed by the Italian architect Vittoriano Vigano.

The floor lamp stands gracefully on a slender black aluminum frame. The on/off switch is located on the hood and the size of the lamp is 147 cm high, 55 cm wide and 104 cm deep. The delivery time of the lamp is 5 days. In addition to the standard version you can also choose the Mondriaan version of the Cinquanta floor lamp with black frame and Mondriaan Colors.
A LED light puts 90 percent of the energy into light and only 10 percent into heat. A conventional light bulb does exactly the opposite, a lot of energy is lost in heat. A Led bulb consumes less power to produce the same light output. This is a considerable reduction in use of electricity and this is good for the environment. LED bulbs have a longer service life than other light sources. So it’s cheaper and better for the environment to use Led light sources instead of conventional light bulbs. The light source of the Cinquanta Floor is a 12 Watt LED light source corresponding to the light output of a 75 Watt conventional light bulb. The color of the light is 2700 K, what we experience as warm light. The LED Light source is included with the delivery of the lamp.
