Super-wide-angle light

The light pole houses a sophisticated 4459 lumen multidirectional LED technology with an impressively even, super-wide-angle light distribution. w164 Alto works well even in rooms with low ceilings, making it an ideal alternative to conventional general lighting.

Agile ambience

With its small footprint and simple plug-and-play functionality, w164 Alto is easily adaptable to shifting environments, preferences and needs.

Dimming wheel

The top disc of the base is an integrated dimming wheel and switch. The teeth from the rotation plate interrupt the IR signal at the light barriers, allowing a seamless transition from powerful yet friendly general lighting to a more intimate atmosphere.

Architectural approach

Pared down to the absolute bare basics – two cylindrical units, paired in an off-centre constellation – w164 Alto makes a bold, graphic statement with its brutalist, deconstructionist architectural references.
