Strong it is, the light side. Other than in George Lucas’s (soon-to-be) 7-part “trilogy” about heavy-breathing men in face masks and freaks in pyjamas armed with rudimentary light-sabres, our Force One luminaire, as the protagonist of the light side, possesses some real superpowers – enabled by a wide array of sensors that any Jedi knight worthy of the name would have loved to have at his disposal. Not to mention the lumens per watt or DIN-compliance workplace lighting. Composed of head, backbone and base, our trilogy really consists of three parts and no more. May the force be with you.
Its name is as striking as its shape: FORCE ONE. When you see and use it for the first time, everything about it looks carefully conceived. Every detail has its own logic and its elegantly clear contours generate an impression of overall coherence. The crucial innovations of the Force One are perhaps not at all apparent at first glance, but become clear in daily use. Its head projects unusually far over the work surface and its base disappears almost entirely beneath the desk. In order to achieve this, the designer Rupert Kopp integrated the technical units into the base although they are usually located in the head of luminaires. This made it possible to create an extremely thin head only 20 millimetres thick. The result is uniform, large-surface illumination of the work area. Thanks to its thoroughly thought-out details and its slim silhouette, the Force One exudes an elegance that endows it with a powerful aesthetic presence, irrespective of the angle from which you look at it.
BY THE WAY: There are two versions of the Force One (one with 6,246 lumens and a “Power” version with 8,472 lumens) and it is available with three different surfaces: anodised aluminium, aluminium brilliant white and aluminium with a natural polished finish. Force One luminaires can be supplied in 2,700 K, 3,000 K, 4,000 K.
