As a luminous light source protected against weathering, particularly on houses, entrances and walkways, lanterns have a long tradition dating back to the Middle Ages that has developed into an unparalleled variety of forms over time. These newly designed luminaires take one of the most common lantern forms and lend it a particularly attractive alternative interpretation. The luminaires are equipped with the latest lighting technology and feature a high protection class. As a result, they are suitable for a nearly endless variety of applications. Their particular shape, the option of selecting the luminaire’s colour and the various arrangements of the light source allow for exceptionally aesthetic design of lighting and architecture. The light from the LED modules is distributed softly and uniformly around the luminaire using a translucent diffusor.
