Aureole is a minimal lamp created by Berlin-based designer Daniel Becker. Aureole is a universal lamp which combines a ceiling floodlight and a reading lamp to an entirely new typology. The shape of the shade has been designed specifically for the directional light created by LEDs. By moving the shade vertically along the wire, the light atmosphere can be varied dramatically, reflecting entirely to the ceiling or to the floor. The unique beauty in this system appears however in the interstages while moving the shade. The transition of the light beam from the top to the bottom happens smoothly and fills a space with a magic glow, moving in a way that resembles natural phenomena generated by clouds which cover a full moon or the setting sun.
