Here’s a gorgeous new lamp that’s sure to catch the eye — and funds, hopefully — of fans of energy efficient LED lighting.
Mike Garner, founder of Manifold Lighting has launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding project to start production on Piccolo, a stylish, USB-powered desk LED lamp (don’t worry, it works with USB wall plug adapters) that emits a nice warm glow. Apart from looking really at home next to an iMac or a Macbook Pro, Piccolo knows a few other neat tricks.
Piccolo emits a nice warm glow, busting the myth that all LED lighting is harsh and cool. It also features a dimmable touch switch, a choice of three bases (etched glass, Carrara marble, and black anodized aluminum) and a built-in cable organization system.
As of this writing, the Piccolo project has raised nearly $20,000, half of Garner’s $40,000 goal with 43 days to go (fundraising ends Thursday Jan 17, 1:16pm EST). Should the Kickstarter campaign prove successful, Piccolo lamps will be assembled in Chicago, Ill.
That’s right, Made in the USA!
