Alberto Meda and Paolo Rizzatto have designed a clever table lamp that will not take up much room and still light up your desk or table perfectly. This large table lamp from the Berenice Collection is easy to move into any position due to the stiffened nylon friction joints in the arm of the fixture and the rynite head that can be rotated 360 degrees. The metal parts are finished in a striking die-cast aluminum while the overall body of the fixture is finished in gun metal. The pearl glass reflector comes included and will provide a light that is soft on the eyes but bright enough to keep your attention. Features:
