Just as functional as the rest of the series but more compact, Ledtube A joins the lineup for Marset’s signature reading light. With a focused bedside beam that illuminates without disturbing others nearby, the surface edition’s switch is integrated in the base, an almost instinctive bit of ergonomics that allows it to move in any direction. With a honeycomb plate that traps peripheral light from the integrated LED and prevents glare, the lamp comes in 4 finishes: matte black and white or metallic aluminium and bronze.
- Shade: 1.1" dia (2.8cm)
- Clamp: 2.6" dia (6.6cm)
- UL listed
- Color temperature: 2700K
- Bulb included
“Marset is more than lamps: We take care of light in its different nuances and effects, to create atmospheres with character, helping to improve people’s quality of life,” declares the Barcelona-based company. Marset’s dual preoccupation with both crisp contemporary design and the more elusive ambiance of lighting has firmly fixed the firm on the design world’s cutting-edge radar. A series of attention-grabbing and innovative fixtures account for the recent revitalization of the brand, though Marset has actually been around since the 1940s.
A family business, Marset was originally a foundry, not a lighting company. It segued into lighting design when Francisco Marset formally established Marset Illuminacion in 1965. Decades devoted to metalwork easily translated to the contemporary lighting industry, with a dexterity of materials available to create unexpected, atmospheric lighting effects. Not to mention the influence of its Barcelona home, a city renowned for architecture, design and visual inspiration.
