Just a hair under 5” this high output LED fixture brings a nostalgic presence to your desk. Reminiscent of Lego building blocks, the TOP FOUR light also comes in poseable wall, ceiling and floor models. Each version has 4 individual 0.5 watt LEDs which in total produce the equivalent of a conventional 60 watt lamp but last up to 50,000 hours (about 25 years of use while you toil away).
One appealing aspect of this design is that the series share the same optical head and joints but use varying sizes of arms for each application (a great example of extensible design). The optical lenses generate sufficient spread of the light while at the same time acting as part of the sculptural essence.
Designed by Alberto Basaglia and Natalia Rota Nodari, they’re available in six colors and are made of painted extruded aluminum and thermoplastic. Luxit is the supplier and you can find this model for about $200. Buy one for your kid or just keep the fun for yourself?
