Thanks to its chrome-plated tubular steel frame, LUM is the first of Thonet’s lamps to invoke the Bauhaus style and is thus a perfect fit with the company’s collections of classic furniture. The LUM floor lamp is the work of designer Ulf Möller and combines classic lines with state-of-the-art technology and a high level of energy efficiency. Its shape has been reduced to a minimum: the linear frame, shaped only by bending, fits in perfectly with Thonet’s collection of tubular steel furniture with models by designers from Marcel Breuer all the way to James Irvine.
In contrast to its simple appearance, the technology behind LUM features numerous sophisticated details. The lamp is switched on and off by lightly running your hand along the flute-like bar of light, which is equipped with automatic touch control and swivel-mounted. It also has an automatic sleep function and can bathe the frame in a gentle glow when used as a nightlight. A memory function selects the previously set, dimmed intensity next time the lamp is switched on.
Thonet will be presenting its latest products at the imm cologne from 17.01.2011 to 23.01.2011.
