In 1999, designers King & Miranda created with belux diogenes a luminaire that combines two forms of lighting – accentuated reading light and generous indirect light. Thanks to this characteristic and its compact build, belux diogenes is ideal for use in more confined spaces. Both the uplight and the reading light are integrated in the lamp head and are easily dimmable from your seat and independently of one another. As a matter of course, the reading light may be precisely aimed at your book, magazine, newspaper and the like. Now, belux diogenes has been re-engineered to fit LED technology. Thanks to their extremely long service life, LEDs are practically maintenance-free and 80% more economical than the halogen bulbs originally used. Aside from the technology, the looks have also been upgraded. Four new colours – graphite black, gold-grey, bronze and white - are used from head to foot and lend a completely new look to belux diogenes.
