Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Looks great and works well Fits perfectly on our antique drafting table (repurposed now as homework area). Exactly like the one in my mom industrial design studio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from A perfect classic This lamp is so iconic and no-nonsense. I buy it again and again -- don't be fooled by imitations. There is a huge difference when you compare them to this original.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dino M. from The best desk lamp I've had The Luxo L1 has exceeded my expectations. Feels very well-made. The Desk Base is quite heavy and stable. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from A design classic, built to last. The Luxo L1 is a thoughtfully-designed and solidly-built task lamp. I love its long reach and smooth action. It's there when I need it and moves out of the way easily when I don't. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Perfect desk and work lamp This is the second L1-Task Light that I have purchased this year. I bought one for my workbench. My husband wanted one when he saw it. He uses his Task Light for reading. It is a sturdy, well-designed and classic lamp. The lamp arm is much longer than the knock-offs sold at office supply chains. It is also very well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Metalworker from Excellent work light. I bought the L1-Task Light for my work table and I am quite happy with it. I got the white finish which is very nice. The weighted base is sturdy and attractive. The arm is long and easily reaches over the work station on my six foot table. This is a heavier and sturdier and longer lamp than those sold at the office supply chains. I am thinking about purchasing another. My husband wants one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Classic lamp I looked at a lot of task lamps before selecting this one. Many are too complicated and too big. Jacobsen's lamp is the perfect size and the spring system is well balanced so that it stays in place where you adjust it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Excellent reading lamp We bought this to replace a very old Luxo and were seeking a lamp that used a 60W incandescent. We are very happy with this replacement of an old favorite. An elegant, simple, nonhalogen solution. I hope they never stop making this lamp!

L1- Task Light is rated out of 5 by 37.
Can you use a regular 60 watt bulb with this lamp? If not what's similar that does? Thanks.
Thanks for your interest in this design. This lamp is not made for incandescent bulbs because it is wired to support compact fluorescent instead. It functions off of an energy efficient 13W E26 base CFL bulb, which are easy to find online as well as in your local home department store. The wattage scale is different for CFL bulbs than it is for incandescent, and a 13-15W fluorescent bulb is equivalent to a standard 60W incandescent bulb. If you needed to find a desk lamp that functions off of incandescent instead, check out the Tolomeo series by Artemide, which is one of our most popular and versatile lines. Should you require some additional clarification beyond this and would like to speak to a product specialist directly, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we can assist you.

Does Luxo still make the same lamp with the larger flared shade which you still find in lots of architects offices? and which still uses an incandescent bulb?
Hi there, and thanks for reaching out to us. At this time there are only two Luxo table lamps that we carry: this one, and the Air LED Task Light, which features an integrated 2W LED Array, but not an incandescent lamping source. Sorry about that! To discuss this fixture in greater depth, or to follow up with anything else, feel free to give us a call anytime at 866.842.6209 and we are more than happy to go over some options with you.

Hi, Do I need to purchase both the lamp itself AND the base, two separate purchases? or does the lamp just automatically come with a base? Thank you -Kerry
Hey there! This comes with the desk clamp and you can add on the base for an up charge as part of your order. You would first select your "1. Model / Color / Clamp" (Silver Grey/Edge Clamp, or White/Edge Clamp). And then you would select or opt out of the "2. Accessories" by choosing the coordinating lamp base or "None, for use with the edge clamp". When you are ready to place your order, you can go to this product page, http://www.ylighting.com/lux-l1.html .

Can this lamp accept a brighter CF or LED bulb with an E26 base - something equivalent to a 100W incandescent, for example?
Hi there! This can be used with a maximum 11 watt CFL which is approximately the brightness of a 45-50 watt bulb. That should provide sufficient direct task lighting. You can use up to a 40 watt incandescent, but anything higher like 100 watts will create too much heat inside the shade and become a hazard.
