Balancing act. In 1966, a certain Mr. Jagger went down on his knees to his sweet Lady Jane and proclaimed himself her servant. In the year 2014 nobody need throw themselves at the feet of our Lady Jane but of course they are free to do so if they wish. The luminaire head virtually hovers above the ground and is effortlessly adjustable. It almost seems as if the strong fabric cable is all that prevents the luminaire from floating away. What Mr. Jagger could never have imagined in his wildest dreams, despite consciousness expanding little helpers, is that there is another Sister Jane to enhance the technicolour vision.
There is absolutely nothing superfluous on this LED luminaire. And the clever thing about it is that the luminaire head holds itself in place by its own weight. Moving the head and fixing it in any desired position are child's play. The colourful fabric cable is plugged directly into the LED module and makes two separate components out of the head and the stand. And not without good reason: this allows the user to simply detach the head and, in the twinkling of an eye, make a portable light out of the floor-standing luminaire - one incidentally that does not require a switch as Lady Jane features touchless control and dimming. The colourful fabric cable is fixed to the luminaire head with a plug that disconnects easily, thereby endowing Lady Jane with an elegant anti-tripping solution. And the reading luminaire looks most becoming with a second head – Sister Jane, which is available as an accessory for Lady Jane and is run via a Y-connector on the existing converter.
Lady Jane is available in 2,700 K or 3,000 K. The four-meter long fabric cable can be supplied in dark grey, magenta or neon green.
