Super-wide-angle light

The light pole houses a sophisticated 7000 Lumen multi-directional LED technology with an impressively even, super-wide-angle light distribution – spanning almost 180°. w164 Alto works well even in rooms with low ceilings, making it an ideal alternative to conventional overhead 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, allowing a seamless transition from bright, 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.
