Aledin is a LED task lamp available in two different versions, Tec and Dec, whose distinctive element is the diffuser. Aledin Tec has a flat head which throws a direct luminous beam and is also adjustable thanks to the movement of the diffuser itself. These characteristics make it suitable for office use while Dec, on the other hand, is defined by the faceted decoration of its cone-shaped diffuser. On this model, the luminous beam throws a wider and more atmospheric light which well lends itself to residential applications. The two articulating arms in polycarbonate, which constitute the structure of both models, are characterized by two aluminum rods endowed with a conductivity function. In class 3, this lighting fixture has a high-performing luminosity in the area of 600 lm and enables considerable savings in energy consumption thanks to its latest generation 5.6 W LED lamp bulbs.

Alberto Meda studied mechanical engineering in Milan, graduating in 1969. Soon after he was appointed technical director for the design-oriented manufacturer, Kartell. In 1979 Meda made the decision to pursue independent work as a designer and engineer.
The wonderfully functional and comfortable Meda task chair, designed during the 1990’s for Vitra, combines ergonomic sophistication with a visual coherence that testifies to his engineering background. Meda’s portfolio is comprised of a wide range of products – everything from cars for Alfa Romeo to high-tech lighting for Luceplan. Meda is acknowledged for his ability to use state-of-the-art materials in ways that are visually arresting as well as structurally sound. Alberto Meda has been working with Vitra since 1994. During this time he has created a series of office chairs and a variety of office and conference desks.
Today he lives in Milan.
