Traditional incandescent light bulbs can cause a great deal of harm to paintings: the heat can cause the paint to dry or crack, the radiation can dull all of the minute intricacies, the brightness can blind the audience or the dimness can leave them unsure of what they have seen, in short, the standard light bulb can destroy the reception of a piece of art by ruining its demonstration. For this reason, a number of technologically minded art experts came together in collaboration with Cocoweb™ to design the perfect lighting stratagem and the result is the Tru-Slim® Plug-in Art Light.
The slim and elegant frame of this light, which does not draw attention to itself, is equipped with LED nodes that emit a soft, warm light of a yellowish white color, much like the hue of light you can see on an bright sunny morning, yet not only does the Tru-Slim® light not produce any UV rays or heat, it requires only 80 percent of the amount of energy that standard lights for art use- meaning it will work to protect the Earth while it protects the art.
Additionally, the Tru-Slim® Plug-in Art Light includes the Cocoweb dimming controller, enabling the artist or exhibitioner to adjust the brightness of the light to best accentuate the painting’s light or dark elements. The 16-inch Tru-Slim® Plug-in Art Light can glow for over 50,000 hours and comes in a great number of colored frames including antique brass, black, black with brass accents, brushed gold, chrome, mahogany bronze, oil rubbed bronze, satin nickel, and white.
