Artsy 8AM task lamp strikes a pose

Darren Murph

These days, a lamp needs to be more than just a lighting instrument, and while the 8AM task lamp doesn't sport integrated speakers, an FM radio, or solar panels, it does go a long way in cleaning up clutter and reaching hard-to-light areas. Constructed from braided electric wire and an aluminum clamping system, this design-centric light allows users to create their own lighting scenario by bending and folding the post, and the rigid structure enables some fairly eye-catching poses to be struck. Furthermore, the device brightens your day more and more each time you touch the clamp, but we're sure a clap-sensitive setup could be installed if that's your thing. Apparently, this creation is still in the prototype stage, but the commercial appeal on this one is pretty glaring.
