More forward-thinking design, this time from the hand of Michael Lax and his Lytegem Lamp from 1965.
It’s back out as a commemorative edition from Lightolier, still offering a telescopic neck that adjusts from 6.5 inches to 15 inches and a lamp head swivel of 360°. Which means you get the light exactly where you want it, as well as that heavy cube base to make sure it stays in place after all that movement.
Sold in a choice of colours and with the lamp’s unique original packaging and bulb, it sells for $125 online, which is around £70. Sadly, I’ve not been able to find a UK retailer as yet.
