At first glance, w181 Linier resembles a linear pendant lamp. However, a closer look at its geometrically strict body reveals that there’s more than meets the eye.
A series of 256 deep-recessed individual optical systems, packed ultra-tight, provides a crisp directed light.
Separate anti-glare compartments allow for a precisely defined field of warm, well-balanced and glare-free light.
For a smoother user experience, the w181 Linier is available with integrated dimming wheels at both ends; each can be turned independently to set the desired light level, allowing for optimal adaptability. Depending on your particular needs, w181 Linier is available in two different colour temperatures – 2700 K and 3000 K.
w181 Linier’s sleek black aluminium body is suspended at its Bessel points to create perfect balance and stability in relation to its long, slender proportions.
Long lasting light source
Dirk Winkel is a Berlin-based product designer who graduated from the University of Arts (UdK) Berlin, followed by a MA in Design Products from the Royal College of Art (RCA) London in 2010.
He is specialised in lighting and furniture design and worked for different designers and design houses in Berlin and London before setting up his own studio in Berlin in summer 2011. Driven by belief in the beauty of formal purism and the classic principle of 'less but better', some of his great interests are the exploration of pushing the boundaries of mass production techniques, the rethinking of light and lighting paradigms, and the investigation of new materials and their potential.
