  • Form Follows Function

    Form Follows Function

    Louis Sullivan said it; Ardea embodies it. Flexible hinges at the base and head are continuous with the rigid structure, allowing for infinite adjustment of the light direction and expanding the range of light output. The Ardea neck can extend from a task position of 18 inches to 34 inches.

  • Put It Where You Want It

    Put It Where You Want It

    A range of attachment brackets allow Ardea to be freestanding, clamped to a work surface, or mounted on panels or rails. The hinges are continuous with the rigid structure, and the aluminum extrusion is twisted in a new, innovative manufacturing process, giving the design stability, as well as a sculptural, organic flow.

  • Even Light

    Even Light

    The compact fluorescent bulb has a reflector for even illumination distribution in any position. The bulb is encased in a mirror reflector, which provides even light distribution, while the lampshade remains cool.

  • Environmentally Enlightened

    Environmentally Enlightened

    Ardea was developed for energy efficiency. The compact mini-fluorescent 13-watt bulb is a low consumer of electricity; it uses about one-fourth the power that an incandescent bulb uses, and it lasts three to four times longer. Ardea is made of 12 percent recycled materials and is 84 percent recyclable at the end of its useful life.

Answer: 
The Ardea Light does have a replaceable light bulb, and can be replaced with a compact mini-fluorescent 13-watt bulb. The bulb is a low consumer of electricity; it uses about one-fourth the power that an incandescent bulb uses, and it lasts three to four times longer. The light bulb can be purchased at most hardware stores.
