Reading floor lamp
This lamp is full of style and sobriety and is part of the Achille collection created by the zangra brand. This adjustable lamp makes it easy to direct the light and is ideal when you want to read, work, or illuminate a beautiful object. The head of this modern lamp can both tilt and rotate and therefore allows you to direct the light wherever you want. The Achille collection is designed and manufactured entirely in Europe and complies with European regulations. The series includes a table lamp and a floor lamp, both available in white and black. The switch is located on the upper part of the cylinder where the bulb is located. Both models require a GU10 bulb.

What is a GU10 light bulb?

A GU10 light bulb is designed for GU10 or GZ10 fittings. These light bulbs are commonly used for spotlights. The GU10 light bulb employs a twist-and-lock system, called Bi-Pin, which consists of two prongs spaced 10 mm apart. U means "Universal". They operate at 230 volts without the need for a transformer or a driver. If your light bulb is dimmable, you will be able to adjust the brightness at all time. It’s designed to fit snugly into place with just a push and a clockwise twist.
Here you will find a GU10 light source, if you would like to buy one!

Why choose a floor lamp?

A ceiling lamp is often not sufficient to illuminate an entire room and give it an atmosphere. Ceiling lamps and floor lamps, therefore, complement each other perfectly. A floor lamp is used for ambient or accent lighting rather than the main lighting. The beam of light is often too limited to be used as the main lighting. A floor lamp will be perfect for illuminating a darker corner and will be ideal as a reading lamp next to a sofa. The advantage of a floor lamp is that you can easily move the lamp from one room to another or from one corner of the room to another. You can position a floor lamp anywhere near a power outlet.
For example, you can place a floor lamp next to a desk, and you have a desk lamp! This can be useful if you don't have a lot of space on your desk.
If you opt for a floor lamp with a movable head, you will be able to direct the light wherever you want. For example, you can use it as a reading lamp and direct it onto your book.

Is the light bulb included?

The light bulb is not included when you buy this light. You will find here the whole selection of LED, incandescent, stick and halogen light bulbs. Take into account that each light needs a specific type of light bulb. You will find the kind of light bulb that it requires under the "Technical Description" tab.

What does the IP value mean on a light fitting?

All light fittings are classified according to their IP value. These IP values (International Protection or Ingress Protection) indicate the degree of protection of the light fitting against dust and moisture. The IP value consists of two digits: the first digit indicates the level of protection against dust; the second, the level of protection against moisture. The higher the IP value, the higher the protection. Check this diagram to see the different existing IP values.

What does the IP20 value mean on this light fitting?

IP20 means that the light fitting:
2: is protected against the intrusion of solid particles with a dimension greater than 12.5 millimetres.
0: has no protection against water penetration. This light fitting can be installed indoors, but not in wet areas.
It is not recommended to install this light fitting outdoors. A device with an IP20 value is not protected against dust or moisture. A light fitting marked IP20 may have holes to prevent overheating. However, the lamp is protected against contact with objects larger than 12.5 mm, such as a hand or finger.
This model is suitable for indoor use, but not outdoors.
