Tatu Lamp Design Andre Ricard by Santa & Cole
The Tatu Lamp designed by Andre Ricard is soon available again.Inspired by the Armadillo with a shell on its back that protects it when it rolls up into a ball. This Pop-art design classic is again marketed by Santa and Cole. This flexible lamp consists of three parts that can turn independently of each other. So you can customize for use on a shelf, desk or bedside table. Even as wall light, the fittings are included. The implementation of Santa & Cole Edition is improved over the previous design by applying LED technology. This makes the light intensity dimming from 0 to 100% easily and the light source is much less warm and more durable. The movable lens is also improved, the result is that the intensity and the focal length of the light now is adjustable.
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.
