The futuristic Agaricon table lamp, is a fun lamp, characterized by a uniquely-shaped ribbed polycarbonate body.
A curved extruded aluminum ring, perimetral to the lid, is the user's interface. By gently touching or pressing it quickly with the fingers, or suddenly loosing the hold, you can progressively modulate the light. The electronic sensor dimmer allows both the on/off function and dimming. The lamp body and its "lid" are made with high pressure injection-moulded polycarbonate. Integrated sensor dimmer.

In the early 1980's he worked as a designer for Frog Design in West Germany on numerous design collaborations such as walkmans for Sony and computers for Apple. He later moved to Paris as a consultant to Knoll International. He later returned to London and founded Studio X in the Notting Hill area of London. Lovegrove has worked for a variety of clients such as Issey Miyake, Herman Miller and Airbus and in 2005 he was awarded the World Technology Award for design.

Luceplan was founded in 1978 by Italian architects Riccardo Sarfatti, Sandra Severi, and Paolo Rizzatto to custom design lighting fixtures for the commercial and industrial sectors in Europe. But with designs that also appealed to the residential market, Luceplan has created products with this market in mind since 1981. Merging new design and technological solutions with enduring style, quality, function, and efficiency, Luceplan products are extremely popular in Europe and have been available in the U.S. since 1978.
I think it was the worst purchase I ever made at Ylighting and I returned it.
It looked so cool on line, and everything I'er ever ordered has been fantastic...at least as good or even better than the photo online. This looked like just the right piece for a contemporary master bedroom, including the great green color. When it arrived, it looked like a cheap lamp you would buy for a child's room...the plastic was too light, the color was so washed out you could barely see it and the plastic had multi-color sparkles in it like a '50's water pistol, which wouldn't have been bad if the lamp didn't look so cheap already...plus the sparkles were never mentioned in the copy, which may have caused me not to order it. I was upset that I had to pay for shipping on principle; this was clearly not poor design choice, but really poor product representation.

Ross Lovegrove seems to have a unique talent for making things look like they are from the future. The Agaricon Table Lamp looks a little like a table sized space ship. This light looks good when not lit and amazing when lit. Although I really like it Ylighting currently only offer it in orange and jade. I would love to have got the clear/translucent version. It has a nice way of interacting with the light. Touching the rim will turn it on and off. Touching and holding will dim.
