originally designed in 1965 by michael lax, the lightolier lytegem 8001 became an instant icon. its design was so remarkable that the MOMA inducted it into their permanent collection. the genius of its telescoping arm and swiveling head guarantee you’ll have high-intensity, localized light for perfect reading. it takes an automotive 12v/25w bulb and has a high and low switch setting. the white shade measures about 3.5", the heavy cube base 2.5", and the arm extends to roughly 15". Design Within Reach, the arbiter of good taste for all you modernists, has recently reissued this classic lamp. but here’s your chance to own a 1960’s original- and what’s better than an original?! it’s in fantastic vintage condition. no rewiring necessary.
