Design: Wolfgang Pichler, Robert Steinböck
Set to be launched in 2007, the Lamp ZOE - a product in the VITEO_Light Collection - was developed by VITEO's chief designer Wolfgang Pichler in association with Austrian lighting designer Robert Steinböck.
This outstanding reading lamp for the garden and patio combines the benefits of a powerful light source emitted using white luminescent power LEDs (‘Mono') with the beauty of an elegant design. Here, a cylindrical lampshade made of opal acrylic glass has been mounted on top of a 185 cm high metal rod coated with structural powder. The base consists of a mounting plate which can also be screwed fast to any subsurface near the property, for example, if so desired.
ZOE is powered by environmentally friendly solar energy. The lamp will provide about five hours of light once fully charged (after about 15-16 hours of sunlight). The energy is stored in rechargeable batteries located in the lamp-shade. Since the solar lamp can be positioned just as you wish, wherever you wish, it gives you the flexibility to light up even the most obscure parts of your garden and patio: forget about plugs, you can take the lamp along with you wherever you go!
New in 2009 is an additional connector in the lamp shade, which enables you to charge ZOE by electricity and to use it also indoors.
