Tolomeo Classic Table Lamp from Artemide

In 1989, when the Tolomeo table/task was given the Compasso d’Oro award for Italian industrial design it was credited with having achieved the perfect marriage between design and engineering that works together in total “sync” to materialize an idea and create the perfect object for industrial production.

Kelvin LED Table Lamp from Flos Lighting

The Kelvin LED Desk Lamp from FLOS provides an ample spread of direct light in a thoughtfully engineered, energy efficient design. Features a double pantograph arm and swiveling head. Toggle the light on/off by lightly touching the sensor once for maximum light, again for a minimum illumination at 70% and a third time to turn the unit off again.

Tizio Classic Table Lamp from Artemide Lighting

The Tizio is a design classic, with the first version released in 1972. It provides orientable halogen task lighting, and its elegant counterweight and arm system keep the head constantly parallel to the table.

Silva LED Table Lamp by Cerno

The structural connection between metal and wood was the inspiration here, where the fixture’s stance is only strengthened by gravity.

Horizon LED Task Light from Humanscale

Humanscale’s Horizon LED task light is the first utilization of Thin Film Technology™ in a task light. Using a series of high-intensity LEDs surrounding several layers of polycarbonate and optical films, Thin Film Technology produces an ultra-wide footprint of warm, glare-free 3000K light.
