Two shells are joined to form a borderline between dark and light, shade and diffusor. They’re bound by three velcro bands, leaving the shell edges free of metallic joints. When the lamp is on, the inner white shell diffuses a soft, comfortable light, while the indirect light emitted from the top gives the impression that the lamp is floating below the ceiling. The contrast of black ABS outside and opal white acrylic inside is striking even when the light is off. The three elements – shade, diffusor and velcro tie bands – are clear and visible features in the design and make the lamp easy to maintain. No manual is needed to change the bulb. Two standard versions of 616 exist: one for use with 60W fluorescent lamp and the other for use with dual 60 W and 55W fluorescent lamps for extra illumination, enabling the use of Borderline in different spaces. The Borderline family of lamps includes floor, suspension and ceiling versions.
Following the design of the Borderline family, Borderline Long offers efficient, yet soft light. This long form perfectly compliments the existing circular Borderline, and is suitable for a long wall in an office or a shop. As with the other lamps in the Borderline family, there is no need for a manual nor a screw driver for re-lamping. Simply remove the Velco strips.
