Task Lamps in the Spotlight - New York Times -- I'm fascinated with lamps and light. Without good lighting, you have trouble living in the world of books, art, and ideas. With good lighting, the world opens up.

I also think that paying attention to having good lighting is important for maintaining our full functionality for as long as possible.

I think I really want #4, Richard Sapper’s Halley Compact lamp.


  1. this lamp is so confusing, i can't figure out what is what.

  2. and that's why I want it--it looks as though it pivots on two axes, perhaps three.

  3. neat article, I must've missed that one when we were away.
