The Lune Light looks like something taken from movie “Tron.” It’s almost as if someone took the wheels from a light cycle and repurposed them into an atmospheric mood light. I want to say this could unofficially qualify as a Tron throwback, but it wouldn’t make much sense since the movie is set in the future. Perhaps we can call it a “throw forward?” Does that term even exist?All geeky references, and cheesy jokes aside, the Lune Light is a futuristic, modern looking lighting piece.
One alluring characteristic of the Lune is its shape. We humans are naturally drawn to round objects. Studies indicate increased brain activity when people are shown curvy, rounded shapes verses pointy, jagged ones. The Lune provides plenty of gentle curves with its sleek and round form; potentially making it mentally stimulating, and easy on the eyes.
Functions and Features
This lamp is activated via touch, meaning there are no physical switches involved. It’s capable of displaying 7 colors: red, yellow, green, teal, blue, magenta, and white. Each hue gives you a different feeling. You can choose a color based on your mood, or you can set the ambient vibe of a room. If you can’t decide on a single color, then you can set the light to cycle through all seven colors at 1.6 or 2.6 second intervals.
The Lune has a built-in dimmer which allows you to adjust its brightness. This is handy in cases where you just want enough light to safely walk around without having to worry about hitting a coffee table with your shin. One thing to note: The dimming feature exclusively works when the Lune is set to illuminate a specific color.
Finding the right touch combinations may take a little getting used in the beginning, but it’s easy enough to figure out in a short amount of time.
This light piece’s dimensions are: 9″ diameter x 4″ wide x 8″ tall, and weighs approximately 3 lbs. The Lune Light is durable, and capable of illuminating a small-sized room despite its size, and its primary design as an atmospheric light.
The light source can swivel 290 degrees, allowing you to direct the light in almost any direction. It can swivel 50 degrees back, and 240 degrees forward. You can point it towards a particular spot in a room, or an object such as a piece of art. Since this light is quite stylish in itself, it can arguably hold its own as an art piece.
Low Power Consumption, and Long Life Span
The lamp’s built-in LED bulb can’t be changed. I normally consider this as mark against the lamp, but the light has a 50,000 hour lifespan. With that said, I’m willing to overlook the hardwired bulb design and give it a pass. Doing the math, it would take over five and a half years for the bulb to burn out if you decided to keep it lit up 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The lamp’s power consumption is low; using only 9 watts to operate. With the bulb’s long lifespan, and low-wattage use, the Lune will serve you for many years to come.
Great at any Age
It’s perfect for almost any age group. You can use the lamp as a night light in your child’s nursery, gift it to a 5-year old, or a college student. Even a thirty seven year old who writes blog posts about lamps can use this light! Believe me, I will enjoy every second of it, haha!
While there are some minor tweaks I wouldn’t mind seeing such as: Longer cycle times in rainbow mode, slightly user-friendly operations, and perhaps a changeable bulb; the Lune Light’s beautiful look, it’s features, and functions make it a well rounded atmospheric illumination piece… Pun intended, lol.
The Lune Light isn’t tied to a specific sci-fi movie, or video game, but that doesn’t stop me from thinking up references which appropriately fit. For example, have you ever played Portal? I’m almost tempted to take two of these lamps, and set them on different sides of a room. Then, set one lamp to blue, and the other to red or yellow (since orange isn’t available, doh…).
Finally, I’d throw a wad of paper through one lamp’s ring, almost expecting (and secretly hoping for) it to come flying out of the other lamp on the opposite side of the room. To be honest, something like that would blow my mind if it actually happened…What? Don’t judge me! Ha!
