Valoa olohuoneeseen

Beagle-valaisin Coffee Table Diary -blogissa:

”Beaglen äärimmäisen yksinkertainen ja veikeä design tekee siitä monikäyttöisen kumppanin, joka ei liikaa huuda nimeään. Samaan aikaan valaisimen ilme on kuitenkin modernin persoonallinen.”

“Beaglen osalta valonlähteenä on LED-polttimo ja sen tehoa on helppo säätää valaisimen suuntaa sekä asentoa muuttamalla, heijastamalla sitä enemmän kohden tilaa tai suodattamalla sitä pehmeämmin jonkun pinnan kautta, vaaka- tai pystyasennossa.”

Beagle Lamp

Beagle is a laid-back mood creator that can be positioned for either horizontal or vertical lighting. 

Beagle is streamlined and simple. It can be used as a shelf, floor or desktop lamp. The character of light changes depending on the positioning. When upright and directed towards the wall, the lamp provides pleasant indirect lighting. Light intensity can be easily adjusted by turning the lamp. Beagle uses a long-lasting led light source.

Available in autumn 2016.

Design: Mottowasabi
White/Steel (h. 160 mm, w. 260 mm, d.165 mm)
