The new ITIS desk lamp from Artemide provides dramatic LED illumination in a slick modern package. Thanks to its amazingly flexible adjustable design, the fixture easily takes on a variety of different looks.
Designer Naoto Fukasawa actually took home the coveted Red Dot Design Award for his UFO-like lamp design, which provides both direct and diffused illumination from a low-energy (5 watt) LED light source.
A set of double joints allows the stem of the Zamac (zinc alloy) lighting fixture to tilt from 0 to 90°, while the head of the lamp can be rotated through a full 180° of freedom.
The ITIS lamp comes in both high-gloss black and high-gloss white finishes and is available from Stardust.com for $395 USD.
