Colour rendering at its best | Aliki Polydor | liki liki design

Experience sustains that no artificial light reveals the authenticity in colours like that of LED lighting at the appropriate colour temperature (for some it may be 6500°K). There is nothing like "daylight white" or "natural white"  to bring out that pure colour and pigment while referring to the light source's CRI.
(Color Rendering Index is a scale from 0 to 100 percent indicating how accurate a "given" light source is at rendering color when compared to a "reference" light source. ... Light sources with a CRI of 85 to 90 are considered good at color rendering.)
In most contexts and living spaces, people are naturally drawn to appreciating changing stimuli and moods. Adequate and dynamic “light” can be enjoyed in the same way as when ones listens to a pleasant music track, or appreciates a meal. It becomes a synaesthetic experience.
This behavior stems from using light as an “active” ingredient in feeding the individual's sensations and needs. Variation is what gives us more satisfaction.When approaching the hours of sunset, the intensity of emotions and their density reach a pre-climax.  By nightfall, with the proper LED lighting, colours stricto senso or colours of emotions, reach their epitome in providing this ultimate sense of synaesthesia without ever neglecting quality.

"napo" LED table lamp designed by Aliki Polydor 2007- atcasa

Do we always have to look back in time or let somebody else work out for us what's in, what's trendy, what's been presented at the Salone del Mobile or at Euroluce?
Do we always have to check who has got this or that to decide if we shall get the same? Is it part of the Vitra collection and sold in series? Will it be considered vintage in a couple of decades? Does it match our sofa?


Can we simply be of today and use the latest LED technology, not just old fashioned bulbs but printed circuit boards - indeed real electronics! Time has come for us to settle in the present and accept it.

The «napo»™ table lamp, designed by Aliki Polydor, fulfills this position thoroughly - a little “avant-guarde” perhaps - undoubtedly revealing a highly elegant and charismatic design.

We don't always have to look up to “the Jones's”, do we?
