Winkel w127 is manufactured of solid fiberglass reinforced biopolyamide that is based on over 60 per cent renewable material derived from castor oil. Like any kind of thermo- plastic it is recyclable. The mechanical solution is based on micro gas springs, widely used in the automotive and electronics industries. The gas springs have a lifespan of more than 50,000 compressions and give exceptionally good movement patterns. The shade is adjustable for universal direction of the light. The light technology is based on a highly energy-efficient multi-chip LED solution. This consists of a cluster of diodes instead of several separate diodes. By using multi-chip LED, so called multi-shadows are avoided and a very even light pattern is achieved. The diode is cooled efficiently with an advanced cooling construction. The fixture is equipped with both a reflector and a diffuser lens, to give optimal light distribution and light quality. In addition, there is a glare protection system to minimize both direct and indirect glare. Winkel w127 is equipped with a seamless dimmer that is operated by an IR-switch; a built- in timer automatically turns the lamp off after five hours.
