Mix is a refined desk lamp with an easy construction and most modern LED-on-Board-Technology made by Luceplan. The design of the multiple awarded lamp was coined by Alberto Meda and Paolo Rizzatto, both have already designed numerous lamps for Luceplan together.
In the head of the Mix disk lamp there are multicoloured light diodes that create an intense and warm light.
