VERTIK is the answer: not only it’s a breath-taking floor lamp that illuminates the room with a radiant light and, thanks to its sleek contemporary design, stands out in all surroundings like a luminous sculpture.
But, above all, as a freestanding bike stand, it stores the bicycle upright, enhancing the frame design and… saving a lot of space. It’s a radical innovation, 100% made in Italy, that turns a new light on your passion.
VERTIK lamp stem – shaped as our handlebar-shaped logo – is made of satin aluminium on one side and plexiglass on the other: two halves that mirror one another to create a silhouette that changes from every perspective.
Inside the shell, a LED string casts a dimmable neutral light in the room highlighting the beauty of the bicycle. The lamp is provided with a high-tech touch sensor switch: you tap on it to switch VERTIK on and off, while you can dimmer its luminosity by pressing the sensor with your finger. When the floor lamp is switched on, a luminous blue dot points out the sensor.
VERTIK dome-shaped base has a groove in the middle, designed to fit all kinds of wheels, from track bikes’ to MTB’s.
A spheric cap embellishes the stem’s junction, enhancing the lamp’s flexuous lines.
The base, made of dark silver hand-varnished rigid polyurethane, sits on a revolving metal apparatus: it allows to direct the lampshade according to your needs. And it makes it easier to park the bike, you just turn it around to accomodate the wheel and then turn it back in the right position.
Once the back wheel is placed in the base groove, you just lift your bike upright and figure out the correct position for the provided leather covered metal pin that has to support the fork. Then you just screw it in the suitable threaded hole once for all… that is, unless you decide to change your bike, of course!
Before screwing the pin in the convenient threaded hole, you tuck it in the leather fork strap, provided with several black automatic buttons. You just wrap the strap around the fork and close the button. Thanks to its adjustable length, it securely blocks all kind of bicycles.
VERTIK doesn’t need any assembly: it’s delivered already mounted, ready to be switched on.
