A design classic that was beloved of some of the great designers – the Lampe Gras 205 lamp, the work of Atelier Gras.
This 1920s gem was much loved by Le Corbusier for its 'pure function', indeed he used it in his own office, like many other designers of the day. The modernist ethic no less. For your money, you get what you see – an adjustable work/table lamp that's ideal for reading and working, with a chromed base and head to add a bit of eye-catching style.
Expect to pay around £330.
