VIA has a changeable lamp shade, giving you the opportunity to change its look and light setting any time. There are three settings: V: for uplight, I: provides up and downlight, A: provides mainly downlight. VIA! For all three settings, the direct light is also reflected through the white powder-coated aluminum leaves, with a matte inside coating, giving a perfect indirect light, without a distracting glare. It only takes one minute to change the lamp shape.
