Ascent is a table light designed for Luceplan by Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken.
By moving the head along the stem, the light intensity goes from being turned off at the bottom position, to gradually ascending to the full light at the top. This gives the user control over not only the light intensity, but also the spread of the light.
0% light intensity 10% light intensity
100% light intensity
Ascent comes in two versions, with an anchor bolt for tables, or with a base.
The anchor bolt is made impact resistant by having a co-molding of steel and rubber in the base, allowing up to 15 degree of tilt of the stem.
