Bud was designed in 2010 by Carsten Jörgensen. Bud is a result of the designer's fascination with geometry and the sculptural expression when the elementary geometric figures (sphere, square, triangle) are comprised in a three dimensional configuration. What happens when you connect all elements with each other with an ongoing spherical line? What happens in the space between them when you cover it with a skin? The result is a sculptural metamorphoses resulting in a flower like object, a flower bud shortly before it opens its leaves and unfold its geometric beauty. No wonder that to bend the wire in all three dimensions needed, highly sophisticated machines and bright craftsmen to figure out how to create the Bud.
The Bud is providing a spherical 360° diffused light that will enhance the sculptural structure between cube, sphere and line. Bud is supposed to find a home where it can flourish in all its brightness as a singular suspended object spreading its natural ambiance.
Due to the dim-ability of the light source it is easy to adjust the intensity of the light coming from the bud and to change the ambiance of a specific room or for a specific occasion.
The lighting source included is a dimmable A++ LED bulb with a milky finish providing 800 lumen at 10-watt, the same as a 75-watt incandescent light.
The colour of emitting light measured at the bulb is 2700 Kelvin, meaning the warmer end of the color spectrum toward yellow. The actual provided light measured at the screen is 2800 Kelvin.
The colour rendering ability (Ra / CRI) is rated to Ra 90. An incandescent light will in comparison provide Ra 100, meaning that the colour rendering ability by LEDs are less. However, in comparison to other electrical light sources is the most energy saving lighting source known.
This is the reason we have chosen LED as a lighting source. With a guaranteed life cycle of the madetostay LED bulbs of 25000 hours it becomes a reason more to choose LED. Therefore we have decided to offer the same length of guarantee for the Bud.
Shaped over an internal white powder coated steel structure supporting the cocooning polymer (plastic) fibre the cocooning screen is provided with two additional protecting translucent matt lacquer finishes that makes it possible to clean the surface of dust and other emissions from the air. The cocooning is soft and can withstand pressure from non sharp objects. If deformed it will after a short time regenerate to its original shape but should not be set under continuous pressure from any objects.
Bud is as well delivered with 4 meters of power cord with your choice of 4 colours; black, white, red and orange.
To cover the ceiling power outlet we have included a simple to install white metal cover which makes it easy to install the Bud Lamp.
*Please note that you have to have a dimmable switch to the place you want to place the lamp
**Please see the guarantee conditions in data files.
