The trumpet-shaped top shade on the fixture provides illumination of the area above the three shades, which primarily directs the light downwards. A base reflector and a blue glare ring protects against glare from all angles. The strongest light is directly under the fixture. The shades are created in spun aluminum and have a matte white painted finish to ensure very comfortable lighting. The struts are in rolled silver and the canopy is white. The lamp is 120V and requires one 200W A-23 medium incandescent bulb. Suitable for dry locations. UL listed. Manufactured Louis Poulsen.
