North Floor Lamp Design Arik Levy for Vibia
The North Floor Lamp designed by Arik Levy for Vibia is actually a ceiling light. It is suspended from a ceiling cable with a counterweight on the floor off the back end of the lamp that allows you to choose the height and location of the light source. If you place the counterweight, a block of 8 cm diameter to the right, the light source at the front of the lamp goes to the left. If you move the block backwards, the hood will go down and forward. The North Floor Lamp is the most flexible floor lamp that has been designed so far, it makes it possible to bring light exactly where we want it by moving the counterweight. The design is elegant, thoughtful and very dynamic. For additional information about sizes and colors, click on: Specificaties North Lamp
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 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. And 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 North Floor Lamp is a 9 Watt LED light source corresponding to the light output of a 60 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 lamp.
Everyone has a deep and fundamental connection to natural light. It nourishes us in nature and soothes us in the build environments in which we work, live and love. At Vibia we believe that life is more joyful, beautiful and rewarding when you consider light. We always design with natural light at the forefront of our minds, finding ways for it to feature in every part of living, both now and in the future. We design beautiful, purposeful objects and we invite people to use them to conduct their own performance of light.
