English term or phrase: shade
Though not yet competitive with traditional sources, recent times have seen the technology improve by leaps and bounds. Fixtures intended for traditional light sources do not fully exploit the strengths of solid-state lighting, nor do they address the technology's inherent weaknes "Lucy" is based on this potential. Intended to bring a sense of elegant whimsy to high techlogy's cold undertones. All forms serve a function; from the cast-aluminum reflector to the inl ted heat sink. The glass vase channels airflow through the internal fins while preventing contact with the hot surfaces. Designing for LEDs requires new thinking. The character and aesthel of the luminaires will no longer be based on shade, or reflector, but rather on its heat-transfer components.
