Human Scale Element Light
March 4, 2010
We love our new desk lamp. It casts a wide pool of bright white light on our computer desk, but unlike our last desk lamp, it doesn't get too hot. Our old lamp actually melted the top corner of our desktop computer! I also like its slim outline. It fits neatly on the top tier of our computer desk, and angles down to give me the light I need for writing and typing. My only complaint is that I thought the lamp would never get here! This lamp was recommended in an article about desk lamps in the New York Times. I would be interested to see what other products you have. Could you please send me a catalog? Thanks.

Light took some getting use to (different kind of bulb/light), but after a few days, really liked it. Design is excellent, well made. Happy with purchase.
