Design by Alberto Meda and Paolo Rizzatto, 1985.
By Luceplan.

The Berenice table lamp is the inimitable founding product in a new type range of reasonably small sprung-jointed lamps. The fluid articulation of its movements and its perfect stability make Berenice a light that can be moved around without occupying precious space and with minimum effort. Berenice operates with a transformer that allows low voltage power to reach the bulb through its rods without electric wiring, allowing the fixture to remain slim and elegant. By simply touching the head ring, which is well insulated and independent from the bulb housing, the light can be moved in any direction.

Metal parts in diecast aluminum, reinforced nylon frictional joints, rynite head. Parabolic reflector in pressed glass or metal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design and durable I bought my first Bernice lamp in 1999 and it's still in perfect condition and works awesome..This second lamp was to replace another bedside lamp that failed after 5 years. Stick with a winner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best light from an attractive yet unobtrusive task lamp. This is the best task lamp that I have ever used. It is also available, yet remains inconspicuous when not in use. The halogen light is warm and never seems to tire my eyes. I highly recommend this lamp!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very very close to the perfect light I've just happily ordered two more Berenice Lamps. This makes five lamps of the same type, but different sizes, that we have and use on a daily basis. I really can't say enough about these lamps. They preform so efficiently. Their design is ultra simple, easy to use, they take up very little space and provide focused and easy to manipulate lighting. We've had two lamps for eight years, and another for nearly five years with absolutely no issues, other than a couple of burned out bulbs. Some care does have to be taken putting the bulbs in, and initially installing the flat glass protector and the glass lamp shade. The shade, in particular, has to be put on just how the instructions indicate. But if done right, with just the right amount of pressure, it snaps right in and stays secure. There are really no other issues that I've encountered that have made me question these lights. I'm not sure why one has to pay more for the ivory glass lamp shade than the other colors. That seems odd to me. We have a blue one that I like, but the green somehow drove me crazy after a year or so and I opted to buy a simple ivory colored shade, which again, costs more than the others...but was good for me. I know these colored shades are a signature part of the lamp, but if you're planning to use one of these as a bedside light, you might consider getting the metal shade as it keeps the peripheral light to a minimum, if that's a concern. Our recent two lamps have smaller transformers, and that's a welcome change. All in all an excellent, beautifully designed light that seems to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for a tall man. We own the large and the small. My husband who is tall uses this at his desk. We love these lights and have owned several. I looked for years for a better reading lamp and never have found one. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Bernice table lamp! This is my second Bernice table lamp and although I am in a period of my life in which I think less is more I just had to have another. Loved my experience ordering the lamp, learned the meaning of Monocacy "A well sensed garden". Will look to Ylighting for all my future lighting needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't settle for a knock-off! This table lamp is so perfect that my husband and I have bought at least 10 of them over the years. We have occasionally tried cheaper ones or variations of the design, but we keep coming back to the Bernice. It's just about flawless!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Berenice a winner again! We find the Berenice table lamps ideal for reading in bed. They focus the light where it needs to be without flooding the room unnecessarily. They also allow the bed mate to sleep without the glare of overhead lights distrubing that person. Their flexibility and rotation radius are great assets. Well-designed and engineered lamps! We love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent reading lamp that is light and highly adjustable. I love this reading lamp. Over the past 10 years, I have purchased at least 8 of them, and I continue to be impressed by the versatility, the brightness, the excellent design, and the excellent lighting it provides. I use my lamps for reading, and they are wonderful in that they have a light beam that is focused and does not light up the room, allowing me to read easily in a dark room without disturbing my wife nearby. I would recommend this lamp to anyone.
