Lightning is a very important affair and even more, when we are talking about a desk lamp. Not only they need to provide a great backdrop for the working area but they also need to be able to cast light in the right place, that way we can focus more and avoid fatigue. There are cheaper versions out there but these desk lamps are high on the style department for sure.
Grey Box Light by Design House Stockholm
Just open it and let the light flood out. You can control how much light you want… or not. Close it and you can turn it off. Jonas Hakaniemi’s Box Light is a lamp hidden away in a box, to be drawn out and exposed. A light adjusted with the touch of a hand. Box Light was born in a workshop making a lamp by recycling a simple matchbox, a concept that now has evolved into a thorough sophistication, while still retaining the feel of eco-design and doing away with redundant technology.
Block Lamp by Harri Koskinrn
A sensation of ice and light, of heat and chill. Harri Koskinen plays with contrasts and the archetypes of modern society in his Block Lamp, which became a design classic as soon as it was launched in 1996. The lamp became part of MoMA’s permanent collection in 2000. This is as simple as you can get. We love that the light pours from every angle of the ice cube, providing and ample but soft light source.
Leti Table Lamp
The lamp is constructed with a simple sheet metal design and comes with a huge array of color options. The Leti table lamp provides direct and indirect light thanks to its shade, allowing you to read the books that it holds for you. Made of Lacquered metal and available in several colors: black, red, tan, white. It was designed by Matteo Ragni. Available in both small and large sizes.

We love the simplicity and elegant look of this desk lamp.

We like that it uses up-to-date LED technology, providing high-quality light output at an amazingly low cost—about $1.13 a year.

And it's 85 percent recyclable and made in the USA.
