These stylish light generators use the best and latest technology available in the market today to outcast the shadows and envelope your working area with a clear and bright field of view. From quirky to ultra-modern, let's take a look of these new offerings.

Torch Table Light
A torch that will never run out of fire! These great looking lamps will cast a soft light pattern on any area with it's quirky rubbery look. They are PVC dipped with a polymer finish and with a diamond patterned diffuser that looks more at home in a car design than at home. The Torch Light, owes elements of its form to the typical torch and car headlight. The exterior finish gives the light a tactile sensation, referencing the handheld nature of a torch, while light shines thru a clear polycarbonate diffuser, creating a soft ambient light.

Herman Miller Leaf
When design innovator Herman Miller partnered with design phenom Yves Béhar, sparks flew. The result, simply put, is a new way of looking at light. Leaf, a combination of LED (light emitting diode) technology, engineering and sculptural beauty "is a fusion of technology with humanity" explains Béhar. The light has a thin profile resulting from a flowing, vertical blade that extends and swivels while supporting a matching horizontal blade. Its range of motion allows the user to position the blades for direct task lighting, fold the blades for subtle, ambient light or straighten for dramatic wall wash lighting.

Tolomeo LED
Credited with having achieved the perfect marriage between design and engineering, the Tolomeo was given the Compasso D'oro award in 1989.  Working together in total 'sync' to materialize an idea and create the perfect object for industrial production. The Tolomeo's award winning design, engineering and performance features have been incorporated in a complete series of models, for table, floor, wall, track, and suspension applications. Evolving from the original aluminum shade, to fiber and parchment diffusers, and now with the latest energy efficient LED technology.   The Tolomeo series is earth friendly with commitment to being GREEN.  The Tolomeo is made to be nearly 100% recyclable.

You can also always make your own, like the post we did a little while ago.
