The ultimate task light
w127 Winkel is designed to provide the best possible task light at a feasible price. Today, it is our flagship product, our most award-winning and best-selling task light, a favourite among many renowned architects – and with good reason. We spent over three years developing what we consider to be the most refined task light ever seen: a sublime unity of parts, where every design choice is based on providing light that is nothing less than perfect.
w127 Winkel’s entire concept is built on providing state-of-the-art light, and in this, it truly excels. Built around a COB LED, its well thought through, precisely engineered lighting solution comprises several individual system components. Each of these plays its own vital role in delivering a generous yet incredibly even spread of high-quality, dimmable light over a large surface. Thanks to the biopolyamide material’s heat insulating qualities, paired with a sophisticated heat management system, powerful light can be combined with safe handling and a long lifespan. Last but not least, a built-in timer switches the light off after nine hours, for even greater energy efficiency.
Renewable and recyclable material
Together with the German chemical company BASF we’ve created a cost-efficient design and production process with no compromise on quality, environment or tactility. A high-performance recyclable biopolyamide material – based on over 60% biologically sourced material from the castor plant – provides all the advantages of plastic, while minimising its disadvantages. Fibreglass reinforcement adds strength and an almost ceramic feel – a beautiful tactility.
Advanced mechanics with nothing to hide
w127 Winkel’s arms are pure, solid biopolyamide, with the power cord and micro-spring attached to their exterior, fully visible; this well-planned arm and joint construction provides stability and flexibility, all the way from shade to table mount. We see the design as a celebration of this material – straightforward, solid and honest, with no second skin, no coat of paint, and nothing to hide.
Efficient glare protection
w127 Winkel features an effective anti-glare construction that guarantees glare protection without significant loss of light.
The w127 Winkel family is designed for maximum versatility, with several mounting options – clamp, base, bracket, pin – as well as a range of adapters for integration with table systems from various furniture manufacturers.
Designed to recreate the full, uninterrupted colour spectrum of sunlight, full-spectrum light has a rich, profound quality that is impossible to achieve with the limited spectrum of a standard LED. Full-spectrum light also offers superior colour rendering, making it an ideal choice for environments where correct colour perception is a vital aspect.
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 has worked for different designers and design houses in Berlin and London before setting up his own studio in Berlin in summer 2011. Driven by his belief in the beauty of formal purism and the classic principle of 'less but better', some of Winkel's 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.
From 2012 to 2016 he has been teaching Technology and Construction in Design in the Industrial Design course of the UdK Berlin. His work has been featured by Frame, DAMn, icon, Surface, Monocle, Gestalten Verlag and many more and was on display at numerous places like Art Basel Miami, the VitraHaus or the London Design Museum and has won several awards and nominations like GOOD DESIGN (Chicago Athenaeum), Swedish Design Award (Svensk Form), Designs of the Year, the German Design Award 2015 and the Editors‘ Choice Award 2016 (Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair).
