Made from bent, ultrathin wood board, this unique lamp features PowerKiss wireless charging technology built into the base, touch-sensitive sensors for power and light intensity, and nine ultrathin LED lamps to provide plenty of light.
How long will the light bulbs in your favorite lamp last? One year? Two? How about thirty-seven? The Jake Dyson CSYS LED Task Light (£550; roughly $860) is designed to allow ultimate durability — thanks to advanced thermal management — and ultimate flexibility, thanks to a unique mounting system that lets you move the light source up or down and closer or farther away, guaranteeing that the light is right where you want it.
