We had the chance to meet San Francisco's Pablo Pardo at ICFF. He was very enthusiastic about his newest lamp, the Nuve, which will be available this summer.
The Nuve is a combination of ambient and task lighting. It not only has an adjustable shade and a swiveling base, its polished aluminum surface is almost mirror-like. The high energy efficient LEDs embedded in its surface provide up to 50,000 hours (or 20 years) of life.
Just imagine having a beautiful lamp that can be used on a desk, a sideboard, or on a nightstand -- and not having to buy light bulbs for two decades.
