Mix from Luceplan is a sophisticated reading lamp with a lightweight frame that uses the new LED Chip on Board technology. A series of multicolor diodes produce an intense, warm and pleasing lighting with very low consumption (only 5W) and an average duration of some 50,000 hours (against 2,000 hours of a normal halogen bulb). One colored filter in the head allows for the regulation of the color temperature. When it is switched off, its profile is illuminated with a blue light so that the lamp can be found even in the dark. FEATURES:
