The Swiss company Belux presents the maybe most efficient office lamp of the world, with Verto. It illuminates two working places efficiently and stylish with its 80 Watt power.
With the Belux Verto, Naoto Fukasawa designed a lamp that moves free from conventions, stylishly as well as technically. With only one light source, it creates both, 80% direct light and 20% indirect light, since the reflectors are partly transparent. This is how two areas at the ceiling can be illuminated at the same time, glare-free and with pleasant light. The light’s temperature can be regulated by a touch-sensitive switch, without changing the light’s intensity.
Verto works according to a patented principle: With a light source (A), it creates both, direct and indirect light. The LEDs inside of the lamp’s neck, which are assorted compactly, are directed to the diagonal-positioned reflector (B). Its geometry and surface are designed for the diverted light to be glare-free and to illuminate two areas at the same time (160 x 160 cm). Moreover, light will reach the office’s ceiling, creating pleasant room-light, thanks to the partly transparent reflector.
Verto 10 and Verto 12: Light for different demands
Verto 10 guides the light over a mirror grid directly to the working surface. This makes it one of the most energy efficient floor lamps on the market. It illuminates a double working place with only 55W. The partly transparent reflector also guides light upwards making the room a little brighter. The Verto 10 floor lamp Is used when it is the primary aim to save energy, when there are high rooms without reflections or when there is an indirect illumination already. The daytime and movement sensor Multisens enables energy savings of additional 80%.
Verto 12 has direct light for double working places and an additionally powerful and widely shining indirect light. The direct light of the Belux lamp can be adapted regarding light amount and white-tone, making the working place individual. The indirect light of the lamp hasn’t these functions. It remains on all the time and it spreads a uniform light to the room. Verto 12 is used where the basic illumination shall be and where there is a reflecting ceiling.
