Design by Alberto Meda and Paolo Rizzatto, 1985.
The Berenice Floor Lamp is the ideal and discreet companion to people wanting to rest. It is the inimitable founding product of a new type range of reasonably small sprung-jointed lamps. The fluid articulation of its movements and its perfect stability make Berenice the light that can be moved around without occupying valuable space and with the least trouble.
Berenice operates with a transformer that allows low voltage power to reach the bulb through the rods without electrical cable, thus leaving its figure slender and elegant. Thanks to a special spacer fitted into the lower part of the head, the light can be brought very close to whatever needs to be illuminated, while maintaining the proper distance from objects. A simple touch of the head ring, which is well insulated and independent from the bulb housing, will also orient the light in any direction.

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.

A great marriage of form and function.
The Berenice floor lamp not only provides great task lighting, it also looks great. Its unassuming presence makes it a perfect match in a variety of decors. My experience with Ylighting was seamless. The lamp arrived on time and in excellent condition. I would highly recommend both Ylighting and the Berenice floor lamp.

Familiar with the Berenice floor lamps in my parents home, I was disappointed with the details of this version.
The head is now an inelegant plastic versus a sleek metal, and the glass shade is no longer patterned. Additionally, the stand is not as tall or as substantial.

This is a terrific floor lamp.
This lamp is very spare and very functional, as well as good looking.

Attractive and functional
Attractive, well constructed, and nice that it has multiple options for the light head color. And bonus points as it's the only such lamp I was able to find that had the on/off switch on the light head so you can turn it on and off from your chair without fumbling around for a floor switch.

Perfect reading lamp.
We wanted a lamp that was bright, close to the reader, but unobtrusive because we read near a window and did not want to spoil the view. This lamp is small but bright, easily maneuvered to an optimal position, and very subtle. this is our third Beatrice lamp.

Love this lamp! The engineering that allows movement of the light to almost any position is wonderful. I had doubts about the height of the lamp for a reading lamp next to a sofa, but the angles available through manipulations of the arms make that a non-issue. We now have this lamp next to our sofa, but I think it would be perfect next to our Eames lounge chair. Maybe will order another.

Awesome Reading light ~
It's the perfect solution when the table version does not work. It's great.
