Rated 4 out of 5 by from A functional work of beauty The package arrived less than a week after I placed my order and it weighed 18 pounds! Nearly all of that weight is in the disc-shaped base, smaller than a Frisbee. It took 30 seconds to assemble the base to the fixture, using the enclosed cotter pin. The light adds beauty to my office even when it is off. It is a very cool piece of engineering, very seamlessly manufactured. I understand why it cost more , my old cheap lamp, from a home improvement store, is chintzy and slightly embarrassing in comparison. The bulb is as easy to replace as a bulb in any lamp at home. Nothing to remove first...just unscrew the standard sized lamp bulb. It does not get hot. I am very satisfied with it and have had it for a bit more than a week. I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully designed and well built with quality materials. This Luxo adjustable task light fixture is a contemporary classic. Elegant and built true to the original design in every detail. The proportions are correct and the sizing of the components (the springs for instance) ensure that the lamp is stable, flexible and secure in any position. Its more expensive than the countless copies that are on the market, but its well worth the extra cost because it functions perfectly, is good to look at and will last forever. Its beautiful even when its not shining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's good enough for Pixar. The L1 is a classic, and you definitely can't go wrong. Mechanisms are all smooth and accurate, the lamp looks great of course. I bought it with a stand, and actually prefer that look, but ended up using it with the clamp instead just to save some desk space. The bulb that comes with the lamp was a real piece of junk, but that's to be expected and is cheaply/easily replaced. Really a beautiful desk lamp - recommended highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 from Beautiful I love my black Luxo task lamp, which is sitting on the desk on which I'm typing this review and reminds me of the (orange) Luxo knock-offs I grew up with in the 1970s -- only my Luxo is much nicer. Among other things, my Luxo has been painted a soft, gleaming black (not the hard, shiny surfaces of those childhood lamps), and has a heavy solid base (rather than clamps, which are always annoying). My only slight issue was that the finish on the base of my particular lamp was slighted mottled on one side. But since I wanted to use the lamp now, and didn't like the idea of wasting more energy resources by returning it, I just turned the mottled bit toward the wall. (To be honest, I had forgotten about this modest imperfection until I wrote this.) Bottom line: the Luxo is a classic of industrial design, and a perfect union of form and function. It easily merits 5 stars. (And it's also good for my eyesight!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cool! I was worried that because this lamp has been so frequently imitated, spending the extra $$$ for the original wouldn't be worth it. Thankfully that wasn't the case. The Luxo L-1 is big, bold and beautiful. Even though it seemed to take forever to get here (more and better communication from Y Lighting would have been helpful), it was ultimately worth the wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have an earlier version of this lamp that I purchased 30 years ago. It still works perfectly - well balanced, extremely functional, durable, timeless, classic design. After wasting my money on cheap imitations that were annoying to use and didn't last, I am glad I connected up with Luxo again. Thanks for continuing the tradition of quality and excellence.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from L1-Task light I love the light - it's a nice piece of design - but it's HUGE! Not a great bedside light...way too tall. And when I bought it the website didn't say that it wasn't in stock. I ended up having to wait weeks for it to arrive. Very annoying. Make sure you check stock availability before you buy.

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

Asked by: Kerrry
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 . To speak to a Product Specialist directly, 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! Stephanie, YLighting Team

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?

Asked by: CSchelter
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.

Can you use a regular 60 watt bulb with this lamp? If not what's similar that does? Thanks.

Asked by: Tedd
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.
