The origin of arc lamps
Although we can now find them easily and in a wide variety of materials (and prices), it was originally an exclusive and very expensive product. It dates back to the 1960s and those who brought it to life, Milanese architects Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, were looking to create a revolutionary item in the world of lighting.
Their intentions were to create a floor lamp that could illuminate a table as a ceiling lamp would (projecting light from above), that would not disturb the diners and that offered the convenience of not being anchored to a place, but could be moved easily. And why are we telling you all this? Because they fulfilled their intentions and therein lies the functionality of these floor lamps.
The advantages of arc lamps for your home
Arch lamps complete the decoration of any room. If introduced correctly and in balance with the rest of the elements, what you get is a great look. The rarity and peculiarity of arc lamps make them beautiful in themselves and give a room a sophisticated, imposing, personal, and original look. If an ordinary floor lamp is already attractive and eye-catching because of its size and verticality, an arc lamp is even more so. In terms of style, there are so many models, colours and shapes that they are suitable for all styles, whether minimalist or bohemian.
On the other hand, they provide a lot of light while taking up little space. If you take into account a few measurements, you can place one of these lamps in any room. Moreover, they are ideal for painting and handicrafts because they do not create shadows.
Furthermore, most of them allow you to regulate their light, so you can adapt them to any situation, whether you want to use them for ambience, as a spotlight or as a backdrop.
Finally, decorative arc lamps also have other benefits compared to other sources of decorative lighting. Here is a summary of some of them:
- Attractive design: decorative arc lamps have a sleek and attractive design that can complement any decor. Because of their unique design, arc lamps can be used as a centrepiece in a room or as an attractive addition to any decor.
- High efficiency: Decorative arc lamps are very efficient in producing light compared to other decorative lighting sources. This is because arc lamps use electrical energy to produce intense, focused light, making them ideal for applications where high-intensity lighting is required.
- Long life: Decorative arc lamps have a much longer life than other decorative lighting sources. Because arc lamps have no filaments to wear out, they can last a long time before needing to be replaced.
- Controllable: Decorative arc lamps are highly controllable and can be adjusted to produce different lighting effects. This makes them ideal for applications where precise, customised lighting is required.
- Bright and warm: Decorative arc lamps can produce a bright, warm light that can be adjusted to create different lighting effects. This makes them ideal for applications where attractive and welcoming lighting is required.
The importance of good lighting without shadows when painting and crafting
Arc lamps are an important tool for painters and craftsmen. These lamps emit a bright, even light that helps to illuminate the work area and bring out the details of the objects being created or painted.
Proper lighting is essential for any task that requires precision and attention to detail. Arc lamps provide bright, crisp illumination that allows artists and craftsmen to work with greater precision and avoid mistakes. In addition, the bright, even light provided by arc lamps helps reduce eye fatigue, which can be especially important for those working on projects for long periods of time.
Arc lamps are also useful for those working with materials that require good illumination, such as jewellers and electronics workers. In these cases, arc lamps can provide bright, even illumination that helps to detect small details and errors in objects. Also, use totally cold and neutral lights to not alter the perfection of the colors.
In short, arc lamps are an important tool for those who do painting and crafts, as they provide bright, even illumination that helps to highlight details and reduce eye fatigue.
