When literally all you own is a light source by itself, it’s easy to overlook the fact that a mediocre desk lamp will increase productivity (and save the eyeball). Have you noticed that your eyes really hurt at the end of the day when it’s dark outside and the light from your laptop drills a hole in your soul? Alternative, warmer light sources (and some regular screen breaks) can help. A really great desk lamp doesn’t just help you see better, though – it’s a sculptural centerpiece of a well-designed desk setup.
Anglepoise Type 75 Mini Desk Lamp (was $ 195, now 60% off)
The Anglepoise Type 75 Mini is legendary, certainly because of its appearance, but also because of its incredibly good desk lamp. Despite having a stem-like footprint and slender arm, the spring system at its base allows the lamp to stay in perfect balance regardless of the direction you pull it. Perhaps that lightness is why the people at Pixar could imagine an older version of the lamp that literally balances up and down on a ball, then on the “me” in their logo.
We usually see the lamp in a conservative matte black or glossy white, which are both fine. But right now, Anglepoise is selling a bright powder blue spin on the lamp at a massive 60% discount in its outlet store. Do your eyes a favor and grab one before they’re gone.
