Task Floor Lamps
The primary purpose of task floor lamps is to aid or enhance your ability to do the activities that you wish to do. They tend to have unobtrusive designs that emphasize a few characteristic features. The heads or diffusers are often adjustable, and tend to throw precisely-directed beams to reduce spillage and glare.
The character of your task floor lamp and the way it complements or contrasts your decor are both factors to consider when selecting the perfect light. Mid-century modern warmth is what Chester floor light from Original BTC offers, while Karman's Torcia family of lights leans more towards industrial glam. For a task floor lamp that multitasks with you, consider Estiluz's Asana P-3768, which uses available accessories to provide a small tabletop and even a lectern-like holder for your magazine or small book.
Foscarini's Magneto and Catellani & Smith's Lucenera 506 floor lamps both maximize adjustability with flexible necks to ensure you get light exactly where you want it. The playful yet dignified Grӓshoppa from Gubi is an icon of design history that is every bit as timeless as the clean and contemporary Hashi from Davide Groppi.
