The light shaft of the reading light can be inclined at an angle of 35°.

“Super normal” – Naoto Fukasawa coined this term, when he described the focus of his work. “Special is usually less useful than normal” he declares.

In LEIA, Fukasawa knowingly combines different materials to luminous effect; whilst the light body itself is made of opal satin art glass, in contrast, the light base and the ceiling disk are high gloss, inspired by the high gloss of a concert piano.
