LIFTO Benjamin Thut, 1985
This classic family of lights, LIFTO, combines state-of-the-art functionality with timeless design: unique adjustment, white tone modulation and dimming with LEDs are integrated almost invisibly into the filigree design. These make LIFTO the technical benchmark and attractive light well-suited for both home and office.
LIFTO arose from the 1984 BELUX light competition. The graduate Benjamin Thut had been experimenting with the motion of gas pressure springs – inspired by the mounting system for the lid of car boots – for some time to invent this brilliant idea of adjustability. The patented use of gas pressure springs is unique in lighting construction and gives LIFTO its wide radius of action. The three articulated joints are easy to move with just one hand, yet the light stays unchanged in the desired position even with this large radius of action.
With 10 strong Power LEDs to illuminate the table over a wide and impressive area with high color rendering. The close arrangement of the LEDs precludes unpleasant multiple shadowing. The integrated Tip-switch enables LIFTO to be dimmed from 100-1% or switched completely on or off. The same switch also allows the white tone to be smoothly modulated from a warm to a cool light. The electronics are designed for an operating lifetime of 50,000; yet LIFTO is also designed so that the LED board can be replaced.
LIFTO has a wide range of applications in both the office and the home. The smaller LIFTOLINO version is especially suitable for small tables or for bedside reading and a wide range of mounting adaptations is available for table and wall use.
