Infrared Vireoo outdoor heater

Combining outdoor table and built-in infrared heater, Vireoo radiates heat from the feet up through the rest of the body. The weather-resistant heater features built-in motion sensors, meaning it only engages when someone is occupying the table, and automatically shuts off if no movement is detected for three minutes or more.

Campo Outdoor luminaires

Hess’s Campo outdoor luminaires create the atmosphere of an outdoor space inside. They are ideal for projects where soft illumination is needed without the disturbing glare of direct lighting systems. At the Farrell Learning and Teaching Centre in St Louis, USA, Campo lights were installed with an aluminium sail, and a finned lower housing was reflected in a pole-mounted luminaire and in a wall-mounted fitting.
