Almost everybody knows it: the Banker’s lamp - one of the earliest kinds of electric lamps which can be found in offices all over the world since the invention of the electric light itself. As a matter of fact, the lamp shade became popular through countless movies but it originally stems from the 20th century. Ron Gilad says: "Originally they were used by bankers, who worked long hours, looking at small numbers. They needed extra light on their desk to make their job a little easier".
On the basis of this long history, designer Ron Gilad named his reinterpretation of the banker’s lamp after a traditional investment banking firm. The Goldman Table Lamp is picking up the classic shape of the original lamp and brings it into our modern era without losing its central design elements. Ron Gilad says: "Goldman is designed as a step in the evolution of this traditional lamp, injected with high technology and slick lines".
Although the exterior of the Goldman Table Lamp reminds us of the original, one can find state-of-the-art technology on the inside: 42 LEDs ensure uniform illumination of the working space while the lamp shade protects from direct glare. On the underside the light sources are also covered by the diffusor so that even direct light appears soft and glare-free.
Surprisingly, there is a USB connector on the backside of the Goldman Table Lamp, where nearly every electronic device can be recharged. The High-Tech-impression is emphasised by the discreet Touch Switch that allows to dim the Working Lamp by Flos. By means of these characteristics and its classic-decorative presence, the Flos Goldman certainly does not need to hide in the office but is also very suitable to set new and individual accents to various rooms.
The Goldman Table Lamp is available with a solid brass base and a green glass shade as well as in a nickel version with smoke grey diffusor.
