Design by Peter Stathis, 2008.
LINK is practical and fun, striking a clever balance between value, usability, and style. A high performance workplace tool, it's designed to satisfy the most particular and exacting lighting requirements — while delighting the user as an animated pal. LINK is designed to bring a smile to your face and colorful character to your place.
LINK is also an efficient, sustainable, cradle-to-cradle product. Efficient design elegantly conserves the amount of material required and minimizes the overall number of component parts — paring them down to their most essential. LINK's luminosity is brighter than most lamps in its category, and its recyclable materials, engineered for effortless dis-assembly, help in achieving the goal of a 100% reclaimable design.
Includes 9 foot cord length with detachable power adapter. Offered in several Soft Touch color options. Winner of 2008 ICFF Editors Award for Best Lighting.
Material(s): Aluminum, polycarbonate, die-cast zinc base
Lamp Type: LED
Bulbs: 15 X high power LEDs (included)

Good not great
Greater ability to rotate the head would make the lamp more useful.

Love this lamp!
I bought this lamp for my home office desk. The orange gives a pop of color. The design of the Link Medium Table Lamp allows more flexibility to move the light source over more desk surface. It's convenient to turn the light on from the light source rather than having to reach the base of the lamp. I love the design and the look of this lamp and highly recommend it!

By: T.B., Homeowner (Utah)
We love the color, the LED, and the fixture itself!
We love the fixture, it's very easy to use
And totally fills our needs. The led lighting is
So great and never having to change bulbs
Is such a plus!! The color of the lamp - green
Is so fun and adds a nice touch to the monochromatic
Scheme of the room - its a win win !'
By: Alan R., (Chicago, Il.)
So nice I even forgot what I paid for this lamp!
This is a very nicely assembled lamp. The machine work on the parts is excellent, and i had no issues with tightness, as some have noted. The articulation of the lamp is smooth and very cool.The light is good, and it looks spectacular in white in my generally white office. In the dark, it looks a bit like a UFO - to me, a positive.
The only caveat might be that although the lamp was supposedly made in the USA (yay!) but the base was made in China (boo, hiss.) That isn't justified IMHO.

Great bedside lamp
Love my green medium Link. It's stable and has a tactile rubberized coating that surprised me, but, ooo, I like it--it feels friendly rather than cold. I use the lower of its two settings for reading in bed. It casts a broad glow--if your sleepy partner is light-sensitive, it might not be your best choice. How delightful that the switch is in inner ring of the head! I needn't reach far to turn it off as I fall asleep. There's a key hidden in the base, to adjust tension in the joints if need be. I'm so pleased with it.
By: Kathie, Homeowner (upstate NY)
I love!!! my lamp!!!
I am using the Link table lamp for use with my sewing machine. It gives off a great amount of light, does not get hot, and looks absolutely fabulous!
It feels solid and the materials are very high tech.
By: Rita H., Homeowner (NYC)
SLICK, SOLID, AND REALLY ANXIOUS TO GET HERE
I was sceptical about replacing my beloved Tizio with this. I thought it might look a bit "industrial" even in my informal living room. I also wondered about the quality of the LED lighting, which I hadn't experienced. But my orange Link looks splendid next to its new Eames chair friend and distributes light in a very pleasing way. It's also quite well made and something of a bargain at this price. YLighting service was beyond outstanding: less than 48 hours after I clicked "submit" it was at my door.

Beautiful lamp with exceptional lighting and build quality.
Peter Stathis nails a fun and functional aesthetic with this Pablo Link Lamp. The thin light assembly advertises the minimalist qualities of small LEDs and the beautiful, machined joints masterfully juxtapose with soft-to-touch, satin-colored arms and arm cosmetics. Lovely and iconic, universal elements of memorable design.
By: Terence K., Designer (San Francisco)
Very nice, but one small complaint
This is a great lamp with a very sleek, thin design. Looks great on a desk or next to the bed. The lower of the 2 light settings is great for nighttime reading, and the head flips up and down so you can point it away from your face. My only (small) issue is the hinges of the lamp restrict the flexibility of the lamp, so you can't always pull it down as far as you'd like. For example, if you were using it at a writing desk, it would be hard to get the head within 12 inches of the desktop unless the head is stretched very far away from the base - probably not an issue for desk use. Highly recommended!

Best desk or reading lamp on the market
We just wish we would have found this lamp before we bought our bed-side lamps. Lots of great light. super sturdy product with a heavy base and perfectly designed arms. and ylighting had the best price on the internet.
By: Zachariah M., Designer (San Francisco)
great desk lamp
I searched all available options for a desk lamp for my personal use and nothing hits all the marks I was looking for like the Link light. LED (economy), price, brightness, aesthetic, flexibility/direction of light -- the Link is a very solid light all around.
By: Sam, Designer (Boulder, CO)
Very satisfied with the Link Medium Table Lamp!
The lamps arrived promptly, and we are very happy with their packaging, ease of construction, and their appearance. They are just what we expected. We do wish that they had one additional lower light setting, for reading in bed.
By: John N., (Las Vegas, NV)
this is such a cute light. it looks anthropomorphic which i love. plus, it provides very bright illumination. and the adjustability is great. the colors are a big plus. very playful palette.
By: S, Homeowner (Calif)
Wow!! it very unique
I just got the orange one, it's awsome, ready to buy other 3 in different color for the rest of my working tables. Buying at Ylighting very easy, thanks guys.
By: Eduardo B., Homeowner (Mexico City)
Great lighting & great craftmanship
easy to use with nice bright low heat lighting. Good weight in base.
By: Jazzdog, Homeowner
Solidly built with and LED lighting
Highly positionable lamp with great illumination without the heat of halogen. Extremely well designed that gives the appearance it will last, unlike other lamps less well constructed.
Thoughtful tool is integrated with the base to tighten the hinges if needed. Two lamp settings ensure the right amount of lighting.
By: Jeff F., Homeowner (Bellevue, WA USA)
A nice task light
We purchased this lamp as a task light for our home office and could not be more pleased. It blends in perfectly with the other lights (modern) in our home, is well constructed, energy efficient, and very well made...
By: Michael S., (Ithaca ny)
Fantastic desk lamp!
This is my favorite desk lamp. I have three contemporary homes and I've looked for lots of lamps and been through all the classics. This one is the best design and gives off the most light - it's perfect!
By: Inette B., Homeowner (dallas, tx)
Brilliant Design and Fantastic Function
I finally received my Link table lamp and it is a dream! The design is flawless and the light is incredible. The Link provides "High" and "Low" intensities and I can honestly say that it is the best desk lamp that I have ever owned.
By: Josie G., Homeowner (Toronto, Canada)
Great product. I would buy again.
I prefer the medium lamp to the small lamp. I like the additional movement with the medium lamp. I like the size of the small lamp, but the small is not as flexible. I would buy another one.
By: Sheryl D., Homeowner (austin te xas)
Nice but not bright enough!!!
The color of the the light is cool. The light is not bright enough to be the only task lamp my desk. Also the lamp was very stiff. Niether compare the FLOS Kelvin LED which moves like a dream and has wonderful light quality to match.
By: Designer, Designer (San Francisco, CA, USA)
Hot ~ bought the Orange one ~ REALLY MAKES A STATEMENT
Functional, yet full of sass that really lights up any desk top!
The orange, color really pops, and creates a FUN working atmosphere! The led lamp delivers exceptional light as well
By: Jennifer B., Designer (New Orleans)
Goofy, green and great!
With a duck-footed base and a manipulable neck, this is a great lamp for reading in bed and/or desk work. The base is heavy enough for stability, the LED-laden ring that constitutes the lighting source is innovative and very effective -- 2 levels of brightness, little glare, but lots of illumination. The lamp colors are pure, saturated and satisfying, and the overall appearance of the lamp is quite pleasing. I'm delighted with it.
By: Judith B., Homeowner (Plymouth, MI)
Beautiful! (Almost perfect...!)
The lighting from this lamp is pristine, so is the design.
The only change I would make is to have the head swivel not only up and down, but in a side-to-side direction as well. It seems easy and possible given the design, and would make this lamp even more versatile. All in all it is absolutely lovely.
