Table Lighting

Graphic Lightcube

The amount of light emitted depends upon how much the lid is opened. This would make a perfect gift for any of your design/gadget lover friends.

Literally a ‘light box’, Franco Bettonica and Mario Melocchi’s compact Cuboluce allows the level and angle of light emitted to be adjusted simply by varying the degree to which its lid is opened. Made from technopolymers, it takes one 40w E14 R50 bulb (not included). Also available in white or red.

San Marco Table Lamp

So maybe this is still a little high for a lamp, even though it’s almost half off, but I think it’s different enough to warrant the extra cash. Plus, it’s imported, so that unfortunately affects the overall price.

“The San Marco is a sleek and low profile desk lamp. Fluorescent lamps are housed in the top extrusion of the four sided frame. It is available in three sizes and two metal finishes: matte aluminum or gun metal. On/off switch on body.”

15″W X 10.5″H X 2″D.

Gatto

Designed in 1960, these are constructed in a similar fashion to the Nelson lights, but I think I like these better because they aren’t so iconic.

Available in your choice of two sizes.
Gatto; 22″ h | 13.8″ w | 60w max
Gatto piccolo; 11.8″ h | 7.5″ w | 60w max

Sun Jar by Tobias Wong

I’ve been following the work of Tobias Wong for sometime now. His ever present sense of humor makes for some interesting design ideas…his collaboration with Ju$t Another Rich Kid brought us 24k gold plated Bic pen caps, and McDonalds coffee stirrers “for the man who has absolutely everything.”

I recently discovered the Sun Jar, which isn’t available just yet, but may be something you’ll want to pre-order. At a mere $38, this old-fashioned glass jar contains a solar panel LED light system that will store the days sunlight and illuminate your space at night. It reminds me of catching fireflys as a child. We would poke holes in mason jars and have a little lantern powered by mother nature, that is, of course, until my mother would make me release them.

Pinza Clip on Light

This is an odd little light, and I mean that in the nicest possible way. I like how it clips on to the edge and extends so far over the table surface without taking up any work space.
