Enhance your productivity with our selection of energy-efficient, LED desk lamps for your workspace.

The Kelvin LED Green Mode Desk Lamp from FLOS provides an ample spread of direct light in a thoughtfully engineered, energy efficient design. Features a double pantograph arm and swiveling head.

Inspired by the structural connection between metal and wood , the Silva LED Desk Lamp is strengthened by gravity. The tri-leg base finds stability on uneven surfaces and allows the cord to exit discreetly and effectively. It feels  iconic while still keeping a clean and timeless modern aesthetic.

The Quattro LED Desk Lamp combines cutting edge technology and a clean design to create the ideal modern task lighting solution. Using revolutionary Flat Panel LED technology, Quattro produces evenly-distributed and glare-free light while an optical sensor provides touchless dimming control.

The LIM360 is an inspiring, simple, and functional desk lamp. Its L shaped arm discreetly conceals an array of high-powered LED’s that seamlessly attach to a round base. LIM features a convenient USB charging port for your mobile devices.

The Deadstock series was inspired when Castor found stock of unused steel components in a defunct factory in Toronto. The Deadstock Collection Catherine table lamp is designed around a cylindrical shade salvaged from a defunct lighting factory. The base is made from Carrara marble salvaged from First Canadian Place and the support is made of precisely machined brass.


Humanscale’s Horizon LED Desk Light is a visually striking fusion of form and function and utilizes Thin Film Technology™. Using a series of high-intensity LEDs surrounding several layers of polycarbonate and optical films, Thin Film Technology produces an ultra-wide footprint of warm, glare-free 3000K light – excellent for ergonomic illumination and beautiful light in any environment.

Looksoflat is a clever nod to the original task lamp designed by Jac Jacobsen. The basic form has been reduced to “two dimensions”. When looked at from a profile view all seems normal, when you look at the lamp head on, you will see it is much flatter version of itself.

Designed for movement, Pixo’s rotating arm and head allow you to direct its warm and bright light source where you need it most. Features convenient USB charging port in base and a 6 ft cord. I bought my own mom one of these and she LOVES it!

Featuring the award-winning three-bar design, the Z-Bar Mini Gen 3 LED Desk Lamp is designed for smaller desks and workspaces. The super-adjustable LED head can spin in its socket, sweep side to side, and rotate around the end of the arm to point in any direction.

Defined by attraction, the Magneto Desk Lamp combines function with clever design to create a unique product that exhibits just as much personality as it does usability. An LED light is held in place on a vertical stem by a spherical magnet, allowing the light to be manipulated in any direction.
