Inspired by the moon, Superloon appears as an impressive flat disc of light using edge-lit LED technology, placed on a tripod and rotating through 360 degrees.
Ideal as ambient light or a reading lamp, the intensity and colour temperature of the Superloon can be controlled using the optical sensor located on one of the legs of the tripod base. The change in colour temperature through the dimming range is achieved through the Warm Tone Dimming. Superloon will be available in black, white or chrome finishing. > A couple of years ago Piero Gandini showed me a new LED technology which consists of a ring of LEDs that send light sideways into the edge of a flat composite disc of translucent white material which, when lit, appears to be a flat white disc. Superloon is the answer to the question of what to do with this intriguing technology. Mounting the disc on a gyroscopic axis allows the light to be directed in infinite directions, while the light it gives out is broad and diffused but can be dimmed to a soft glow.—Jasper Morrison
