Varia / Tablelight


With a simple turning mechanism the ‘Varia’ lamp allows the user to choose the type of light it emits – from warm-white to cold-white. Varia is reminiscent of an hourglass that varies the type of light it produces throughout the day according to the users need.
The human body is constantly immersed in artificial lighting. We continually interact with different light sources in every room. The Circadian rhythms, the ‘inner body clock’, determine when we need sleep and when we are active. Appropriate lighting conditions are crucial to help the body maintain its circadian rhythm.
