Mounting your LivingColors wall lamp
1.Always isolate the Power before commencing installation,
maintenance or repair.
2.Strip the wires as indicated in the diagram.
3.If you have a connection box for wall lamps on your wall, connect the
wall lamp directly by screwing its plate to the connection (drawing 3)
4.If you don't have a connection box for wall lamps in your wall, find
the place where cables come out of the wall. Drill two holes in the
wall, as shown on drawing 4, put in plastic plugs first, and then screw
the plate on the wall.
5.Connect the earthing cable (usually yellow with black stripes) to the
earthing connection (identified by the
luminaire (drawing 5).
6.Observe the correct colour of the wiring during installation: blue (N)
and brown (L). Connect these 2 wires accordingly from your power
grid to the terminal blocks inside the base of the ceiling luminaire.
7.Put the luminaire on the plate, which you had screwed to the wall
earlier; fix it on both sides by screwing in a screw (drawing 7).
8.Insert the connection plug from the tripod into the lamp – make sure
you hear a click (drawing 8).
9.Position the lamp on the tripod and direct LivingColors towards
the wall (drawing 9). LivingColors will show a short introduction of
the colour possibilities. You can adjust the length of the luminaire by
turning the ring in the middle of the stand, pulling the top part of
the stand to the desired length, then turning the ring back to fix the
position (drawing 10). You can also pull the luminaire to one or the
