When it comes to eXcellence and stYle just have a closer look and read between the lines. Words could hide a designer's secret or even reveal his new project. This is the case of Victor Vetterlein with his new concepts: XY-Quad, an aluminium and glass dining work table and X-Pan, an aluminium ceiling light. X and Y are the basic elements for the work table as Four X's form the canopy and four Y's are used for the trunks. The materials used in preparation of this table make it suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
As for the X-Pan, it allows the user to manually adjust the amount of emitted light. Using 14 watt torpedo compact fluorescent lamps and two brass sleeved connector rods that allow the lamp shields to be opened or closed with ease, this ceiling light is the best alternative to a dimmer switch. You can manage to double the amount of light by adjusting the lamp in the open position. If you need less amount of light you just close the lamp and the light is focused downward. This is what we call 'manual light mutation'.
