At the higher end of the budget for desk lighting, the Flos Piani lamp is a contemporary conversation starter. It emits the perfect concentration of warm light to focus on the work you are doing. The light also reflects off the slick, acrylic body which comes in a range of colours including: white, red, green and black.

This simple desk lamp uses energy efficient LED bulbs to light up your toil. It has a nice minimal-chic vibe going on. The polished chrome stem is elegantly modern and combines with an adjustable neck to enable you to direct the light flow.
These diffused glass table lamps are available in four different sizes. Their spherical shape and intriguing design lend a contemporary, almost zen vibe to any office or bedroom and they come with a dimmer switch to adjust the light levels according to your mood.
This clamp desk lamp is a modern take on a style classic. The clamp can be attached to numerous surfaces - the edges of desks, shelves and headboards –you name it. The sleek, matted steel body looks good in rooms minimal or maximal .
