The task lamp is very simple and visually very light. The base comprises of a loop of MDF/Wood . The overall appeal of the lamp is understated and very much essential and pure.
The MDF/Wood base and the aluminium hilt (housing), the acrylic tube and the LED strip create a very harmonious yet dynamic desk lamp. The lamp is very fresh in its aesthetic.
The carefully determined slant angle of the acrylic tube held at one end of the MDF/Wood loop creates interesting visual stance; the angle is optimized so that there is no need to adjust the lamp. Though the LED tube can be rotated 360 degrees, without shifting the base to light up the area on sides if required, this is ensured because of the slide fit between the hilt and the aluminium bracket. This gives very bright uniformly diffused light of about 5′ in the front with no shadows.
There are two versions, one where LED tube rotates and the other version where the tube can comes even when switched on. (as demonstrated in the video) The tubes come in two different textures – clear or diffused surface.
