Sputnik Floor Lamp Design Gabriel Teixido for Carpyen
The Sputnik floor lamp is designed by Gabriel Teixido for Carpyen. This spectacular floor lamp has two light sources, an uplighter for general lighting and a downlighter as a reading light or mood lighting. By applying the Sputnik floor lamp by the uplicht function create the effect of a high ceiling in your room. You can switch the two light sources independent. The Sputnik floor lamp is 183 cm high, this is pretty high for a floor lamp. Available in three colors: white, black or gold.
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 sources of the Sputnik floor lamp are LED crowns, the uplighter has a light output like a 100 – 150 Watt incandescent bulb. The downlighter has also LED crowns similar to a 75 light bulb. The color of the light is 3000K what we experience as a soft white light. These are built into the lamp.
