Ledberg wall lamp for stairway

Materials: Ledberg, aluminum profile, black mdf

Description: Because we had a wall power supply for lamps located too low above our stairs and I wanted a lamp, that wouldn’t blind us walking down the stairs, I made a lamp from five Ledberg strips contained in an aluminum profile, facing the wall and held at a distance by a small box made of black mdf. The transformer sits in the box.

Actually this could have been done with any led strips, but the Ledbergs come at a very reasonable price and include a very small transformer, that can be fitted almost everywhere. And it fits perfectly in the aluminum profiles I used.

    I bought a couple of them on the the internet (eB**) together with some other profiles for different projects.
    I will happily build and sell one to you for a couple of hundred dollars. ;-)

    Brilliant!! Looks like something you’d buy for a couple of hundred dollars in the shops! May I ask where you got the aluminium profile for?

    Is the wire in the wall or ? :)

    • Alojz Šuc says:

      Yes it is. We usually route the electricity in the walls and have them come out where the lamp should be mounted. In this case it was way too low. Hence this custom solution.
