Koncept Lighting

With years of experience in manufacturing and industrial design, the founders established Koncept Lighting in Fall 2002 to design and develop innovative products for home and business. Since then, the company has developed a line of elegant LED desk lamps that are gaining national attention.

Koncept Lighting's flagship product, the Z-Bar LED desk lamp, has been featured in number of media including U.S. News & World Report, Samsung's DigitAll Magazine etc. In 2006, it won "Best of Category" in International Design Magazine's 2006 Annual Design Review in the category of Furniture and was selected into Die Neue Sammlung's permanent collection. The Annual Design Review is America's largest design competition, and Die Neue Sammlung is Europe's largest museum of modern everyday objects of exemplary design, comparable only to the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

In 2007, Time Magazine named the Z-Bar LED desk lamp one of "The Best Inventions Of The Year" and was titled "a green light", basing on the fact that the Z-Bar generates little heat and has a long lifespan compared to traditional lamps. Since then Koncept Lighting has introduced the Z-Bar High Power, which uses higher wattage LEDs to achieve even more energy saving, longer lifespan, and more light output.

The Koncept Lighting goal is to continue to design innovative products that set high standards in the industry and more importantly, make your life safer, simpler and greener.

What I Wanted!

This is a great task light that looks as good as it does its job. You can swivel the head around to bounce off the ceiling or wall for a more diffused look.

The Open Box Was Not So Good

The lamp did not work at all. But YLighting was great and sent a replacement right out.

Perfect lamp for computer desk

Z-Bar Mini is the perfect size for a computer work desk. We have this lamp on a desk with an Apple iMac computer and it looks like it was made for it. More importantly it gives bright, crystal clear lighting to our work area. The dimmer adjustment and the over all positional flexibility are great features.

Great Low-profile Desk Lamp

In general, the Z-BAR Mini is great. I would likely purchase the same lamp again, but knowing what I know now, I would probably research some additional alternatives first.

Combined with the motion sensor and desk clamp, it's a great desk lamp. In hindsight, seeing the size on a large desk, I probably would have gone with the larger version to get more desk coverage, but the Mini works well enough. The build quality is great, and the light gives great even coverage for its size.

I find that it's a bit tedious to adjust when compared to a traditional desk lamp because most adjustments require two hands; one to hold part of it steady and the other to adjust the desired part. As it stands, some positions can be awkward to position the light just right as the only hinge is on the first joint. The joint near the head only pivots in a 180 degree arc. The head of the lamp then swivels around 360 degrees. It's minor, but it does make some positions awkward for adjustment compared to a traditional desk lamp.

Also, the strip for adjusting the brightness feels like a cheap puffy sticker. It's not a big deal, but it's not really what I expected.

Finally, I was looking for the most low-profile and understated lamp that I could find. For the most part, that is an accurate description of this lamp. However, given those design goals, I find it tacky that they obtrusively placed the branding, the word KONCEPT, on it near the very top. I'd prefer not to see any words or branding on the lamp. I can't remember ever seeing a high-end desk lamp that does this.

I want to re-iterate that I am happy with the purchase and would likely purchase again, but given the relatively high price, and having been spoiled by Apple products, I expected a higher level of fit and finish.

Better Than Expected

I ordered this particular lamp because I wanted a low-profile, LED, that would provide sufficient and precise illumination for reading and tasks. So far, the lamp has met both specifications and over-delivered on flexibility. It's great to have a lamp that moves to my needs rather than having to be moved. I wasn't expecting the dimmer to be important but I find I use it regularly. I would recommend this lamp to anyone and, in fact, I have recommended it to several people already.

Great lamp!

We purchased the Z-Bar Mini for use as a task lamp on an end table in our living room. It is great for close-up work (i.e., needle work) as well as reading. Flexible, great quality light and great looking.

Amazing light, great build quality.

I bought the Z-Bar mini for a personal workspace/office at home. It's the perfect size and very flexible in terms of positioning. The quality of light is good, but it is LED so not as bright as you might expect, otherwise the build quality is as good as it gets.

Nice simple desk or bedside lamp

Nice sleek lamp, which I am using at my bedside. I like the LED light and the touch strip for dimming and turning on and off. The only small downside is that the base is somewhat bigger than I expected (but it does make it very stable)

Z-Bar is a great lamp ”period.

Z-Bar is well made and easy to assemble. It's articulating arm can adjust to just about any position and the touch-sensitive dimmer switch is great. We use the lamp for sheet music on a piano. It is the perfect companion product to our piano. Opposed to most piano lamps, it looks very cool.

Sleek, elegant, and functional lamp

I love this lamp. Even though it is fairly tall it has hinges and can fit beneath the shelf over my desk. The hinges also move laterally, so you can twist and turn the lamp to ensure maximum lighting for whatever you're doing. The light is strong and has a dimmer, which is great too. The lamp comes in a variety of bright cheerful colors and the finish of the enamel is beautiful. The only drawback is the bulb, which requires replacement of an entire part of the lamp; so if the lamp outlives the company, you may be out of luck. Still, it promises 25,000 hours of illumination.

So cool.

The way these move is really interesting and they add the perfect pop off color. The sliding on off touch mechanism was a really pleasant surprise too.
