Design by Ferruccio Laviani.
With the Take table lamp, the classic image of the bedside lamp has been revisited by Kartell technology and transformed into an industrial product. Made of transparent or colored injected polycarbonate. Take is avaliable in various chromatic tones. The shape comes from the joining of two joined symmetrical parts: two flat, rectangular and two-dimensional plates which each assume the shape and volume of a half-lamp. The internal pleating of the lampshade creates a play of light when turned on.

TAKE TABLE LAMP ADDS SOPHISTICATED TOUCH TO MODERN INTERIOR
I purchased this item from the YLighting store in Palm Springs by a very friendly and knowledgeable chap named Laine. This table lamp is well worth the price . . . you are getting something that illuminates well when turned on and sits elegantly when turned off. I have the red Take lamp sitting on my metal desk and it adds warmth, while seeming complex because of the internal pleating. Each time someone new enters into my apartment one of the first things they gravitate to is this lamp; another great item by the Kartell group. You can insert a standard bulb or a candle-tip bulb and have the option of using up to a 40w bulb. I currently have a 20w bulb and it is putting off a huge amount of light. I recommend this product 100%. Enjoy!

The product looks good, but is not as practical as described
While the look is exactly as described, the quality of the light itself is questionable. If you want to just get ambient light - fine, but do NOT attempt to read with it: the light is more glow than illumination.

Not many contemporary lighting fixtures could be called pretty but this lamp is, actually, pretty. The lighting is more for ambience than for reading, but that is why I purchased it.

Kartell take table lamp!
I bought that lamp for the bedside table of my young daughter, it looks very nice and she loves the plays of light on the walls!

Simple and classy -- whether for functional or decorative use.
I have a number of friends who've bought Take lamps before, both small and large, and so I've been wanting one for a while. They can be very functional -- I bought a small clear lamp for use as a desk lamp -- but also fun and decorative as well -- if you want to go with a color. A nice understated yet elegant modern design.

Great looking lamp, but flimsy
Love the look of the lamp, especially the refraction of light it projects. It's flimsy at the base, near where the lamp (light bulb) base is located. Cute product, but too thin?

This light is just as cute as I thought it would be, it looks great!

Disappointing in the flesh.
I love the concept and I love the look of the lamp in photos, but in the flesh it is smaller than I expected (even knowing the dimensions) and therefore a bit ... cheesy. Big would be good.
By:Karen B. , Homeowner (Iowa)
Very photogenic but rather tacky in person. It looks (I hate to say it, but --) like a $19 Target lamp. Its small size is a big part of the problem.

A great lamp for a great price !
A delightful accent lamp for an amazingly reasonable price, the real charm of this isn't obvious from photos - you have to see it lit. The complex shadows & shapes cast by what seems to be simple plastic are amazing. Aside from the great shape & sparking color, this lamp comes with a hidden bonus - the bulb it uses is not one of those speciality types that requires replacements purchased from an obscure website in a Third World country but can be picked up at your local drugstore or market. A quality product !

Sweet and beautiful light!!!!
I am in love with my Crystal Take Lamp!!!!! It is so sweet and gives the most beautiful and colorful light!!!!! makes me happy everytime I look at it :)

Small lamp with a big impact.
I bought this light for my teenage daughter's room. The decor is Hollywood glam and I added the Take lamp by Kartell after the lighting in the room was planned and completed. I was taken by surprise the first time I turned it on in the evening - the light coming through the faceted shade is magical and it is small and not obtrusive to other features in the room (I bought crystal clear). It came with a 40 watt bulb which was bright for our desired purpose so I changed it to 20 watt which was perfect for creating a cool and inviting place to wind down after a long day!

Nice modern lamp.
Nice lamp. Bought to go with blue marble formica countertop in kitchen. This is the second one I have purchased.

Stylish, industrial, funky product with classic lines.
I love our little Kartell Take Table lamps! They are super sleek and stylish, and the way the light plays over our bedroom walls because of the pleating in the lampshade creates a magical effect. I wish I had perhaps gone with smoke grey shade, as we do not have a lot of furniture in a large room, however otherwise am completely satisfied. I would definitely buy other kartell products in the future. Thanks Y-Lighting for a smooth transaction!

I love this architecturally interesting but practical table lamp.
Bought this for a re-design of my son's bedroom. Perfect size and comes in great color choices. It's got a cool design, emits a lovely light and adds a nice dimension to the room without being impractical. It's architecturally interesting while at the same time being very functional. We couldn't be happier with it and the price is right too!

I bought the 'smoke' version and the light it gives off isn't as warm as I had hoped, but it is still a nice addition to my home.

Just perfect, look no further for a contemporary bedside table
I wanted something comparable to the Bourgie lamp which I already own but not so big and more stable. The Bourgie can be a little too fragile around young active kids. This lamp is just perfect in clear and size wise it is exactly what was needed. It is sophisticated enough, perfectly stable for a bedside lamp and projects an amazing light and there is enough to read (which may not be the case with all colors but the clear one just perfectly fits the bill). In addition, customer service was OUTSTANDING and I will directly buy from your company in the future.
