Best Bets: 10 Iconic Desk Lamps
While a perpetually pleasing form is certainly important, what makes a desk lamp design truly iconic is its functionality. It’s easy to adjust, has bright and focused light and doesn’t get in the way of work that has to be done. Often, it is a design that has survived—and thrived—by being adaptive to evolving lighting technologies.
Finally, you will notice that with all of these, the original design has been successful enough to breed numerous other versions. In other words, the design was too good not to share in other applications.
