Here at Design Public, we’re gearing up for back to school and homework time with a series of guides to workstation products. What we’ve kept in mind with our curation is not only lamps that will function well and fit comfortably on a desk, but also designs that will not only appeal to your schoolkiddo but also to you. These task lamps are stylish, modern and will last you for a long time after your child has flown the nest. In fact, the only danger is that you’ll be tempted to hijack these for yourself.
Lights Up! Oscar Boudior Lamp. Available in a range of colors with whimsical shades(this one is in faux bois shade with paprika base), this cute lamp will personalize your kiddos space with playful style.
Cerno Onus Table Lamp. Available in lamp options of black or brushed aluminum and with a clever base block in black or natural, this nimble LED lamp teaches a lesson about balance while lighting up a work surface.
Louis Poulson AJ Table Lamp. Designed by iconic Danish designer Arne Jacobsen, this classic lamp is a licensed work of art you’ll pass down for generations.
Pablo Tube Top Table Lamp. We love the way this lamp’s acrylic base practically disappears on the desktop. Also, be sure to check out the small version in bright colors, seen below:
Light and Contrast Trapeze Small LED Task Light. The elegant design of this dimmable task lamp might just encourage your child to pursue a career in engineering.
