Yes, I know, we just looked at a Herman Miller desk lamp a few days ago. Well I apologize, but this lamp is so interesting you'll just have to bear with me. Its called the Leaf and the form quite obviously follows that of a leaf with a center stem and a flat surface extending out from the stem. I imagine this lends stiffness to the structure of the lamp, but it also makes it look remarkably graceful.
The lamp uses LEDs which is pretty cool in of itself - this is looking increasingly like the light source of the future. But more interesting is that they are mixing cool white and warm white LEDs in the fixture to produce a more balanced light spectrum. We have a few LED task lamps at home, and all of the LEDs are cool white. Its fine, but I'm definitely envious of the better spectrum from the Leaf. Ours have a definite blue cast to the light they give off.
