The swing arm desk lamp is one of the most iconic pieces of lighting that’s ever been made, but outside of a few material changes over the years, much hasn’t changed. That all ends now with the Herston Self-Balancing Desk Lamp. The functionality is similar to the iconic piece you’re used to, but that’s where the similarities end. The Herston lamp includes leaf-shaped cast-iron weights that create a counter-balance mechanism that makes it possible to adjust the lamp to any position in one simple, smooth action. No more un-tightening and re-tightening multiple bolts to get the position just right. Unlike other options, this lamp also has concealed conducting elements within the wood frame to generate power, so you don’t need to stare at cables, just an uninterrupted, sculpture form devoid of cables. Should the blending of functionality, unique features and stylish design seems familiar, that’s because the Herston lamp was created by former Dyson designer Oliver Chambers and his partner Greta. It’s a gorgeous, mid century modern style design that will class up any workspace.
