Name: Z-Bar LED Desk Lamp by Koncept
Rating: Strong Recommend*
My husband purchased this desk lamp in early 2008. We were moving into a new apartment and while I didn't love the lamp at the time (except for its energy-efficient status)—I thought it was another techie-looking desk lamp—I do love it now. It's been incredibly reliable and because of its simple design it's been able to reside in several rooms of our house and previous dwellings.
Koncept won multiple awards for this lamp in 2006 and 2007 and it was included in Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry 2009 exhibit Smart Home: Green + Wired, Powered by ComEd. So, why blog about this lamp years later when it's already received great press? Well, after using the light on a daily basis over the past (almost) three years, the lamp has been tested, stressed and has proven to be long-lasting and durable.
Koncept has launching an updated version called the Z-Bar High Power LED Desk Lamp to replace the model we own. It uses less energy and is the same great design: "The new High Power lamp gives a brighter and broader light compared with the original, while consuming only 9 Watts (less than what the original consumes), and has a built-in 4-step dimmer. Available in daylight (~4500 Kelvin) and warm-white (~3500 Kelvin) light models."
The lamp is available in silver, metallic black, red and white. What's not to love about a red desk lamp in your crafting area? It doesn't use a lot of energy, its durable and it will reduce your eye strain as you thread your sewing machine.
