This lamp is built around a metal-coated polyester foil, taken from a first-aid kit. The foil is intentionally highlighted and the reason for the table lamp’s name. The material is mouldable, somewhat translucent, and extremely robust in spite of its thinness. The silver and gold coating reflects most of the light. Each of the lamp’s components fulfills a particular function and has been kept to the absolute minimum. The two LEDs (and cooling elements) are facing each other, thus projecting their light at one another. The foil, however, placed between the light sources and completely flexible, reflects the light into the room. The differently coated sides of the foil – one silver, the other golden – give different coloring to the light itself: there is, as it were a ‘warm side’ and a ‘cool side’ to it. The lamp is controlled using a magnetic ball on the stainless steel base. The two light sources can be turned on separately or simultaneously.
Movable and mouldable polyester foil coated with one gold-colored and one silver colored layer of metal, black anodised aluminium (cooling element), base plate in stainless steel, mains power supply 230 V, illuminant: LED warm 2700 and 3000 Kelvin, 18 watts, 900 lumen. The light output of the LED can be compared to that of a 50 W halogen bulb.
