Designed by Fabio De Silva and Jaime Lozoya, Geco is a new way of thinking about light: it's the height of versatility. Seven LED heads are mounted on two ribbons of flexible steel, fixed to "articulated" bases to "move" and create a curving shape. Geco adapts itself to every situation and brings light where, how and when you wish. Light only, no shadow: the light is not coming from only one source but it's wrapping the objects. They are lit in a complete and uniform way.
"For this innovative design we finally exploited new technologies: we were not content with a conventional use of new technologies. We endeavoured to realise a project of innovation. Geco is, actually, a turning-point in the conceiving process of a lamp: no more distinction among table, floor or wall lamp but just one only object to meet all requirements."
Geco is an actual step to energy saving. Each LED-head uses up 1.4W for a total of 9.8W for an unbelievable light output: 67 lumen per Watt (6 times a normal incandescent bulb). Geco uses the newest, US-born top-efficiency LED-heads: 5000K and 75 lumen (minimum guaranteed). Geco exploits all the qualities of LED technology made in the USA.
Lumina is aware of light technology's fast and continuous evolution, so they made it possible for you to replace each individual LED-head. In fact, if designed in the future, Lumina will offer LED-heads that are more efficient for lighting and energy saving. You will always have the opportunity to update Geco with the newest technologies available.
Lumina presents Geco in 3 finishes: white, black and graphite and has versions compatibile for Europe, The United States and Japan.
