The Heat Pendant is designed by Johanna Forsberg for Northern is a glowing cloud of fire. Once the light is turned off, disappears the fire, giving the shade a cloudy appearance. This copper cloud is 80 cm wide and 60 cm high. The Heat Pendant is a dynamic lamp that fills the interior, with creativity and imagination. The production of the Heat Pendant is part of a social project in Northern Sweden. Johanna Forsberg, in cooperation with a local development agency set up a program, unemployed, asylum seekers and migrants to train them to shape the shade of the Heat Lamp. This is a labour intensive and specialist work, the workers are rewarded to the Swedish standards.
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 Heat Pendant is a 11 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 lamp.
