A friend sent me a link to this great looking lamp, named Halley, I wonder if they named it after the comet? Richard Sapper has designed some iconic office implements from lighting to seating, and this may be his first venture into LEDs as a light source for a task lamp. I love the quirky angles it bends into - reminds me of a Calder mobile as much as a desk lamp. Some interesting technical solutions such as an aluminum heat sink and cooling fan in the lamp head to keep the LEDs from overheating and ensure a longer lamp life.

I searched for a web site for the manufacturer, Lucesco Lighting, and I could not find anything. Odd, I hope that is not a bad sign! But here is a link to the Unica Home online store where apparently you can get them.
