Grachten Lanterns

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam’s ​‘grachten’ have long since been the city’s most impor­tant land­mark. These narrow yet nav­i­ga­ble water­ways wind for over 80 km through­out the city centre, spanned by numer­ous bridges. Recently the grachten and the entire his­tor­i­cal old town were sup­plied with repli­cas of the orig­i­nal Kroon­lan­taarns and Rit­ter­lan­taarns. In both lanterns, a spe­cially-devel­oped bev­elled sec­ondary reflec­tor ensures asym­met­ri­cal light spot expan­sion to create non-glare, warm white light.
