Last year Pablo Pardo and his identical twin brother, Fernando, collaborated on the elegant and infinitely functional Pixo Table Lamp, an LED lamp with an arm that tilts 180 degrees and a head that rotates the full 360. DWR has been the lamp’s primary, but not exclusive, retailer. Now, however, they’ve released a white/brass combination Pixo Table Lamp that is only available through their store or website.
The brass is a beautiful addition to the all-white model (there’s also an all-black lamp option), not just because we like shiny, pretty things, but because the brass arm creates an appealing colorblock while also mixing materials. All the original functions remain the same. The low energy, five watt LEDs last 50,000 hours and run cool with “advanced chip-board technology.” There’s a USB dock for charging your phone, and at $205 it’s also one of the most affordable task lamps we’ve seen lately.
