The fixture emits a softly diffused downward directed light, free of glare. It fades in at a fixed light level, when turned on, and fades out, when turned off, and has a timer function to turn off the light automatically after either four or eight hours. The fixture offers a wide light distribution for its relatively small size and the white painted inner side of the shade helps reflect the light comfortably. With the stepless dimmer, the light can be adjusted to a suitable level between 15 and 100%. The arm has a stationary angle of 15° and can rotate 342° around the base, while the head can tilt and rotate to direct the light distribution.
