SpringEye | A Timeless and Organic Design


This luminaire can be used in various places, for example on squares, in parks and along roads. SpringEye provides both direct functional light and a diffuse signal light. The finish of the design is of powder coated aluminum. The light distributor is partly matted and made of UV-resistant polycarbonate.

BLOSSOM BUTTON
The SpringEye consists of a lamppost 6, 8 or 10 meters high with one, two or three spherical lighting elements mounted on the top – as if they were blossom buds. The shape of these lamps is actually derived from the geometric shape of the human eye. The SpringEye with one lamp creates asymmetrical light, with two lamps square lighting all around and with three lamps square lighting all around with extra light.

PACO BUNNIK
The special feature of the design by Paco Bunnik (1970) is the double curvature: “The design looks dynamic. Due to the possible clustering with different heights. But especially in the aesthetic and functional detailing. The plastic is purely curved and connected to the classic round spherical shape. The plastic is transparent as well as translucent. With this combination, the SpringEye provides a friendly diffuse and functional direct light image, ideal in an urban setting. I am very satisfied with the result ”.

BLOSSOM BUD
The SpringEye consists of a lamppost of 6, 8 or 10 meters high, with one, two or three spherical light elements at the top, designed to resemble blossom buds. The shape of these light elements has in fact been derived from the geometric shape of the human eye. Equipped with a single light the fixture creates an asymmetrical light, twin lights will illuminate a full square. The triple lighted version delivers the same pattern with added intensity.

PACO BUNNIK
The special feature in the design by the Amsterdam architect Paco Bunnik (1970) is the double curve: “The design is dynamic not only because of the possible clustering on different heights, but in particular because of the aesthetic and functional details. The plastic is finely curved and connects to the classic round spherical shape. The plastic is transparent as well as translucent. Using this combination, the SpringEye radiates a warm diffused and functionally direct light display, ideal in an urban setting. I am very happy with the result”.

WEATHERPROOF
The SpringEye is manufactured from aluminum with a powder-coated finish, making the lamp resistant to all weather conditions. The diffuser is partially frosted and made of UV-resistant polycarbonate. The special LED optics has been produced from silicon.
