Cinquanta Twin Wall Design Vittoriano Vigano for Astep
The Cinquanta Twin Wall Lamp is designed by the Italian architect Vittoriano Vigano. Now re-released by Astep. The Twin Wall has two arms with a reflector in white or black. A smart construction ensures that the reflector can rotate 350 degrees around. Also, the reflector moves 160 degrees up and down. Now it is always possible to put the reflector in the right position for the desired light. This elegant Wall lamp has a graceful and slender frame of copper. The size of this versatile design classic is 113 cm wide and 53 cm high. The lamp is suitable for an LED light source.Smukdesign delivers the lamp with the dimmable LED light sources.
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 Twin Wall has two 12 Watt LED light sources corresponding to the light output of 2 pieces of a 75 Watt conventional light bulb. The color of the light is 2700 K, what we experience as warm light. The LED Light sources are included with the delivery of the lamp.
