Ambientec has unveiled TURN+, a contemporary portable lamp that blends a jeweler's craftsmanship with the rigor of optical science. Designed by Nao Tamura, TURN+ is a synthesis of high-tech lighting, carefully detailed artisanal craftsmanship, fine materials, and evocative design.
Thanks to the integrated touch sensor and two types of LED segments, a simple gesture is all it takes to adjust the light, ranging from an intimate, candle-like glow to create a meditative atmosphere, to a more intense level ideal for gatherings and celebrations, to a restful light perfect for reading by.
The exterior is made in aluminum, brass, or stainless steel. Another unique feature of TURN+ is the choice of solid glass for its diffuser. Carved, honed, and polished to perfection, this material brings greater depth to the light by guaranteeing natural refraction, difficult to achieve with LED technology alone.
Rechargeable and portable, TURN+ provides up to 500 hours of light. It is also waterproof, meaning it can be used outdoors, on balconies, and in gardens.
"Light is a powerful symbol of vitality and hope, and TURN+ is intended to be a light that you keep close by, to keep you company through all the moods and moments of your life," Tamura commented. "A lamp that you light by gently touching it is one that can create a strong sensory and emotional bond."
