Entry DescriptionTube Light is a highly-efficient sound absorber, that ensures great room acoustics, as well as a continuously dimmable LED light with integrated light colour control system. The cylindrically shaped light can be suspended from the ceiling at any chose height, as an individual piece or as grouped together in an ensemble. The discreet geometrical body consists of solely two materials – 100% Merino wool as an efficient and renewable material and recycled aluminium. No glues are used in the production process, so that all single-origin materials can be separated and sorted after the completion of their service life. The fine wool covering fabric of the sound absorber also has an additional role: wool is naturally flame retardant and can store air moisture, that will then be given off when the ambient air dries. The light can be continuously and variably dimmed, while also offering full control over the colour temperature, by means of a mobile app. The available colour temperature mixture ranges from warm light measuring 2200K to cold 5000K light. The lighting solutions provided by this product focuses greatly on the human experience as well as visual, emotional and health requirements.
