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 Miro Wall is a 8 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.
ANVIA Almelo is a well known Dutch Design lighting Brand. Founded in 1933 they designed many dutch design icons. In 2014 the company was taken over by a new owner who re-released the classics from the fifties and sixties with modern technology. Anvia has a great collection based on the designs by Jan Hoogervorst.
The mostly organic designs of Jan Hoogervorst from the early years of his design career are clearly inspired and influenced by progressive Italian lighting companies like Arredoluce, Stilnovo and Arteluce. He is also called the Dutch Crown Prince of Gino Sarfatti. His later designs are characterized much more by purity and functionality. Jan Hoogervorst is now seen by many as one of the best Dutch “mid-century” designers.
