The Luxo L-1

Luxo L1 task lamp

A visit to the Design museum this week has solved a mystery I have been trying to work out for ages – who makes these awesome clamp-on task lamps!

The design is based on the spring technology in the British Anglepoise lamps, which was licensed to US and Norwegian firms in the 1930s. The L-1 was designed by the Norwegian Jac Jacobsen and is made by Luxo. There is a website dedicated to it here: http://sites.glamox.com/designicon/

The Luxo L-1 is available to purchase at http://www.luxoonline.co.uk/images/imagecache/large_L1-main.jpg .

If you find other suppliers or other amazing Scandinavian lighting solutions, let me know in the comments.
