Once an everyday object synonymous with light, the classic light bulb’s universally symbolic status is fading. With w202 Halo, its archetypal form is not only revived, but given new light and life. Its design serves as an homage to the light bulb, recreating its timeless unity of light and form.
Thanks to a built-in COB LED, w202 Halo provides a pleasant, warm white, dimmable light that is ideal for both public and private spaces. The large bulb and shade – both crafted from mouth-blown opaline glass – work together to create a gentle downward-directed light as well as a beautiful luminous glow of atmospheric light.
Three different glass shades
The w202 Halo family includes three types of conical shades, each with its own distinct characteristic light.
