One New Flame is a distinctive "floating candle" that never burns down. At the upper end of a sleek circuit board, suspended on fine wires, a candle seems to flicker in the wind. Up close, you will perceive a double-sided rectangular display made of 128 LEDs (each side), which renders the image of a burning flame. From a slight distance, the LEDs 'melt' into the image of a single flame. Sophisticated programming of the LEDs and their warm color temperature make the flame look astonishingly realistic. A movie of a burning flame was converted to pixel data and then coded to each individual LED to reflect the movement. The luminosity of the two displays is roughly comparable to a standard white candle. The silver circuitry and controllers, visible on board, create an elegant composition of mysterious and delicate ornamentation.
The electronic ballast is housed in the simple white canopy. The LEDs are dimmable. Offered in black or red circuit board.
