A timeless unity of light and form.
Once an everyday object synonymous with light, the classic light bulb’s universally symbolic status is fading. With w202 Halo, its archetypal form is not only revived, but given new light and life. Its design serves as an homage to the light bulb, recreating its timeless unity of light and form.
Mouth-blown opal glass
Both bulb and shade are made of mouth-blown, opal glass, by skilled craftsmen.
w202 Halo provides a pleasant, warm white, dimmable light that is ideal for both public and private spaces. The bulb and shade work together to create a gentle downward-directed light as well as a beautiful luminous glow of atmospheric light.
A built-in COB LED provides a modern, energy-efficient light solution with along life expectancy and high-quality dimmable light.
Three different glass shades
The w202 Halo family includes three types of conical shades, each with its own distinct characteristic light..
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.
