Fred Bass, Managing Director of Neonlite International Ltd, the brand owner of MEGAMAN®, comments: “All our design partnerships demonstrate the stunning results possible when high-design and LED lamp technology are blended together.”
MEGAMAN®’s design partnerships as featured at Light + Building in Frankfurt:
Terence Woodgate - Renowned for his stripped down, elegant approach to design, with a meticulous attention to detail and manufacturing, Terence has incorporated MEGAMAN®’s dimmable 6W PAR16 GU10 into Solid. These innovative pendant luminaires (that are also available as surface-mounted downlights) are pure geometric forms that have excellent glare control and a unique support design, enabling the pendants to be locked in exact vertical alignment. Suitable for both residential and contract environments, Solid by Terence Woodgate looks set to bring the benefits of LED lighting performance and longevity to an even wider audience.
Northern Lighting® - Northern Lighting®’s new, sleek ‘Birdy’, is a classic Nordic design table lamp that uses MEGAMAN®’s new LED INGENIUM® Blu lamp technology. Combining modernist elements with the classic essence of its original 1952 design, the Birdy table lamp is powered by MEGAMAN®’s new INGENIUM® BLU, Bluetooth enabled, PAR16 LED lamp. Thanks to its integrated Bluetooth 4.0 technology, the INGENIUM® BLU PAR16 lamp can be wirelessly controlled and dimmed with the simple download of the MEGAMAN® app to most smart phones and tablet devices.
7Gods - Fresh from 7Gods, a British creative design agency that specialises in lighting and interior design, is the George pendant lamp. Made from maple veneer, the George lamp’s design has been inspired by chrysanthemums. It contains the MEGAMAN® INGENIUM® BLU classic LED Bluetooth enabled lamp and thanks to its integrated Bluetooth 4.0 technology, the MEGAMAN® INGENIUM® BLU lamp can be wirelessly controlled and dimmed with the simple download of the MEGAMAN® app to most smart phones and tablet devices.
