Superloon Floor Light
Superloon by Jasper Morrison. It gives a broad and diffused glow, but can also change colour temperature from warm to cold depending on one’s mood. 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’.
“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
“The clear-cut shape of a disc that diffuses a magical luminous aura thanks to LED technology. Like the moon, the project’s muse, this floor lamp rotates 360 degrees around its own axis. But unlike the night-time satellite, it is not insensitive to human desires: intensity and temperature can be adjusted with a dimmer, thanks to an optical sensor on the tripod. Jasper Morrison and his Superloon are light years ahead in terms of class.” – Commented / EDIDA Awards
Inspired by space and the moon, Superloon appears as a clear-cut disc of light with LED technology. Like the moon, this floor lamp rotates 360 degrees around its own axis. However, unlike the night-time satellite, it is not insensitive to human needs with adjustable light intensity and colour temperature, guided by an optical sensor on the tripod. The Superloon is both classic and classy, available in black, white or chrome finishing. It is light years ahead of others of its kind in terms of beauty, intricacy and practical design.
