An articulated task lamp is essential if you’re at your desk in the early morning or very late at night, though let’s hope you’re not working too hard. Check out the Polo Table Lamp, with its small footprint and long, skinny arms. Three joints allow for precise illumination and smooth movement, both a must when you’re in a work zone. A succinct shade takes up little visual space, allowing for a minimal vibe that fits your workspace perfectly.
