Rotaliana String F1 Floor Lamp
String is an indirect-light table lamp, with a two arms structure and LED source. String is also available in the floor version as a reading lamp. It can be fixed on the wall using an elegant die-cast aluminium support or can be placed directly on the desk with a practical clamp.
The structure is a thin metal section that bends and rotates the ray of light in every direction.
The two arms structure of the lamp is a double-T section made with extruded aluminium.
Joints are in die-cast aluminium, hinges and pulleys are in turned steel. The movement is balanced by a flowing in-section elastic chord which is covered by a synthetic coloured textile.
The base of the lamp is made with aluminium with a cast iron ballast.
The adjustable head, made with moulded plastic material, is easily handled thanks to the central hole. The switch is positioned directly on the bottom side of the polycarbonate diffuser.
The use of LEDs offers luminous brightness and energy efficiency with only a 7.2W consumption. String is a new table lamp.
It combines LED technology, easy handling, freedom of movement and original design, characterized by a simple and linear structure as well as by the coloured elastic chord and highly iconic head-handle which recalls the shape of a disc.
