Larchmont, NY — SONNEMAN® – A Way of Light with its founder and creative force, award-winning contemporary designer Robert Sonneman introduces Quattro™, a task lamp that is a precisely poised perfection of mechanical invention and revolutionary flat panel LED technology. Re-imagining what task lighting can be, Quattro™ produces 25% more glare free brightness from 25% less power than conventional LED task lamps. Brightness levels are controlled, at a feather’s touch, from an optical sensor atop its amazingly thin and precise square head that rotates and adjusts on two axes. “In the rush to exploit the relatively new technology of LED illumination, many companies dove into the market, without investing in understanding the science of the technology, resulting in products of varying degrees of quality,” said Sonneman.
“Our approach was to commit to learning the science; its implications, restrictions and requirements before committing to developing a form factor, which I believed would be the result of gaining that insight.” For almost 50 years, Robert Sonneman has pioneered modern lighting, making it an art form. Inspired by modern architecture and the disciplines of Bauhaus, he combined form with function in innovative ways, introducing new approaches to creating dramatic contemporary design to the world of lighting. His revolutionary Orbiter floor lamp of the 1960s is still in production. Robert’s sleek, functionalist lighting designs have become classics of the modern era. Sonneman’s sensibilities and prolific design vocabulary extends through the modern architectural and decorative genres of the 20th century and forward to the contemporary diversity of the 21st under the name of SONNEMAN® – A Way of Light. Credited with being among modernism’s most influential practitioners, his product designs are accessible to a wide audience—through great lighting showrooms and major retailers. Quattro™ brings a new level to designed functional art. It has not only enabled SONNEMAN® – A Way of Light to redefine what lighting is, but also to explore the possibilities of what it can be.
