With a synthesis of mould-breaking contemporary design, advanced materials technology and the latest mid-power LEDs, Astro has created The Edge – a striking sculptural form with a halo of light. It is being launched at Light + Building in Frankfurt.
The Edge owes its form to the use of the latest in mid-power LED technology. Relatively new on the market, mid-power LEDs provide a very good light output ratio but require minimal heatsinking. This allows the use of a lighter, more delicate structure.
The Edge is formed from layers of laser-cut acrylic, with an etched finish to the edges through which the light from the body of the product diffuses. Interleaved between the acrylic panels, layers of white painted metal enhance the effect of radiance.
