Thanks to technical progress, the size of lamps can be reduced while significantly increasing their performance. This frees up design and Antonio Citterio's Kelvin Edge & Led creation, a blend of sophistication and attention to detail, is fully in line with changing aesthetic expectations.
"Only rarely in our profession do you design a product that will somehow become an archetype. With the Kelvin project, I was always convinced that this was the case," Antonio Citterio.
Kelvin Edge uses Edge Lighting technology, a revolution in LED innovation that combines the best performance in terms of efficiency, light intensity and emission magnitude with perfect homogeneity and maximum visual comfort.
Technical description Painted or chrome plated aluminum body, die cast head, joints and forks, extruded arms. Diffuser in photo-etched polycarbonate and aluminate on the perimeter. Light sensor placed on the head offering a 3 level dimming function and a color temperature adjustment at 2700 K or 3200 K. Power cord length 150 cm. Plug-in power supply with interchangeable plugs.
On the surface of the head, a Soft Touch sensor allows you to select the desired intensity and color temperature, according to your needs, with a unique, natural and intuitive action.
By pressing the optical ON/OFF switch on the head, it switches from orange to green and the device automatically adjusts the brightness of the led according to the amount of light present on the desk.
The brighter the ambient light, the less light the lamp emits, and vice versa.
The function can be deactivated by pressing the optical sensor on the lamp head again.
