The w181 linier is a pendant luminaire that appears like a linear lamp at first sight, but its geometrically strict and minimalistic body actually houses a series of 256 ultra tight-packed individual optical systems, utilising a deep-recessed long linear lens with spot characteristics and separated glare-protection compartments. This allows for an exactly defined, but warm, well-balanced and absolutely glare-free field of light on any working or dining table, like a linear spotlight. For convenient operation, the w181 has integrated dimming wheels on both ends of the luminaire, which can be turned independently to set the light level.
Design: Dirk Winkel
Available Summer 2019.
