Die Unterschrankleuchte Coffee-Light vom Antholgie Quartett wurde im Jahr 2004 von Bernhard Stellmacher entworfen.
Die dekorative Kaffeetassenleuchte ist einer klassischen Limoges-Tasse nachempfunden und wird zur Montage inklusive eines kleinen Trafos geliefert.
Die Collage aus stereometrischer Grundform und Alltagsgegenstand bietet sich nicht nur zum Einsatz in der Küche an, sondern verblüfft durch ihre Einfachheit und Witz überall dort, wo man mit Geschirr umgeht.
Leuchtmittel: 1x12V 20W G4 (inkl.)
Abmessung: ø 150x65mm

Floor plans must accurately depict the sizes of real-world objects—buildings, furniture, appliances—in relation to each other.
This requires scaling down the dimensions of all the objects by a common proportion, known as the floor plan's scale.
Scales are usually specified as a ratio, like 1:4. The first number represents units of measurement on the floor plan and the second number represents the equivalent measurement in the real world.
A scale commonly used on floor plans is 1": 48" or 1": 4'. This means that one inch on paper equals 48 inches or 4 feet in real life. This scale is also called the quarter-inch scale (1/4" : 1 foot).
SmartDraw's built-in standard floor plan SmartTemplates are set to the quarter-inch scale by default (metric templates are set to a 1 cm : 0.5 m scale). If you want to change the scale, go to thePage tab and choose Scale from theRulers & Grid group.

Drawing with a Floor Plan Template
In order to make drawing floor plans as easy as possible, SmartDraw comes with hundreds of SmartTemplates you can use as a starting point. Just pick the type of floor plan you want to draw and choose the appropriate template.
SmartDraw's SmartTemplates are not really "blank". They open with all the correct settings to make drawing as quick as possible including docked libraries, a drawing specific SmartPanel with all the key shortcuts to making a perfect diagram, and SmartHelp with step-by-step by instructions.
Using the Floor Plan SmartPanel and SmartHelp
To help simplify the process of making a complex floor plan, all the floor plan templates in SmartDraw will open with a diagram-specific SmartPanel to the left of the Work Area.
The SmartPanel condenses drawing your floor plan into a few easy steps that walk you through whatever you need to create with SmartDraw. If you need more help, you can reference the attached SmartHelp for more instruction.
You can go from a blank page to a completed diagram in just minutes—just follow the instructions on the panel!

You can save yourself a lot of time and trouble by taking careful measurements and thinking through the following issues before you start drawing.
1) When measuring existing spaces, lay your measuring tape flat on the floor and measure room dimensions in several places, especially where furniture will be a tight fit. Don't assume your walls are parallel.
2) Before laying out furniture, look for projecting windowsills, and note the location of electrical receptacles, light switches, vents and thermostats.
3) When placing a desk or chair, ask yourself "What do I want to be looking at when I sit there?"
4) When planning an office, first determine whether the occupant's back will be toward the door. Some people feel very strongly about this. Other design decisions will flow from this basic choice.
5) To reduce glare, try to avoid having computer monitors directly facing windows.
6) Leave enough empty space in front of filing cabinets to fully extend the drawer, plus at least 18 additional inches (1 foot, 6 inches) if the drawers will be accessed by a person standing in front of them. *
7) Allow adequate working space at desks or cubicles. The distance from the working side of a desk to the nearest wall or furniture should be at least 42 inches (3 feet, 6 inches), although most people find 54 (4 feet, 6 inches) or 60 inches (5 feet) more comfortable.
8) The walkway between a piece of furniture and a wall should be at least 30 inches (2 feet, 6 inches) in a residential space (36", or 3 feet, is preferred). In a public space it should be at least 36 inches (42", or 3'6", is preferred). *
9) To get a feel for the width of a walkway before placing furniture, put a tape line on the floor to see how different dimensions would feel.
10) When placing furniture on a residential plan, remember that most furniture will actually sit 2 or 3 inches from the wall.
11) Don't line all the furniture up along the walls. Break up spaces by placing pieces out in the room. Setting rugs, sofas, or other furniture at angles can help avoid an overly rigid feel.
