Mosso™ LED Desk Lamp features the latest in LED technology and streamlined, innovative styling.
Mosso™ provides an LED head that not only swivels up and down, but also twirls a full 360 degrees, making it super easy to bring energy efficient, dimmable, natural looking light right where you want it. A built-in touchstrip allows for smooth, continuous brightness adjustability. The touchstrip is located near the LED head for easy access.
Users can simply swipe along the touchstrip to control brightness and power, or touch anywhere on the touchstrip to jump directly to any brightness. Made of aluminum alloy, Mosso™ is lightweight and easily adjustable. The lamp features 42 LEDs and consumes a total of just 10.5 watts. The LEDs are rated to run 50,000 hours before dropping to 70% brightness. Assuming 8 hours of daily use, the light can run for over 17 years before it becomes noticeably dimmer. To maximize convenience and energy savings, the lamp can also be equipped with an optional occupancy sensor. This allows the lamp to automatically shut itself off when the user leaves, and turn itself back on when the user returns.
Mosso™ is available in Metallic Black, Silver and White finishes, with a choice of warm white (~ 3,500 K) or cool white (~ 4,500 K) light. Weighted base comes standard. Other mounting options include a one-piece desk clamp, two-piece desk clamp, wall mount, slatwall mount, grommet mount, and through-table mount.
Koncept Technologies Inc.
With years of manufacturing and industrial design experience, the founders established Koncept in 2002 to design and develop innovative products for home and business. The company has since developed a line of elegant LED lamps and lighting elements with the discriminating consumer in mind. Not only have consumers embraced Koncept's lighting for home and office, the designs have gained national and international attention. From 2005 through 2008, Koncept's flagship product, the Z-Bar® High Power LED desk lamp has won critical acclaim in publications such as U.S. News & World Report, Samsung's DigitAll Magazine. It has also won a number of prestigious awards from International Design Magazine and Time Magazine and was selected as a permanent display in Germany's Die Neue Sammlung museum as a best innovation of the 20th/21st centuries. It has also won the platinum honor from ADEX (Awards for Design Excellence) awards and was selected to be displayed in the Smart Home exhibition hosted by the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry in 2009. Encouraged by the popularity of and need for high quality LED lighting, Koncept introduced EQUO® in 2009. To date, this finely sculpted LED lamp has earned awards from ADEX, SPARK, Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, Next Generation Luminaires (NGL) Award (sponsored by the U.S. Dept of Energy), and ASID's BLOOM award for energy efficiency. Perhaps most prestigious is that EQUO® was awarded the coveted red dot award for design excellence in 2011, and our new undercabinet light, UCX™, also won the 2011 Best of NeoCon GOLD Award in the Task Lighting category. Even the tremendous success of these exceptional LED lamps has not slowed the Koncept team of innovators. That's because ideas never rest at Koncept. Successes like Z-Bar® and EQUO® and the new UCX™ Undercabinet Light are leading to our next and future generations of lighting elements. Koncept's goal remains as it started: Design innovative products that set high standards in the industry and more importantly, make your life safer, simpler and greener.
