Noble banker table lamp with modern LED elements
Almost everyone knows it, the banker's lamp, which has been in offices all over the world almost since the invention of electric light. In fact, the lamp form known from countless films dates from the early 20. century, where it first simplified the work of bankers. After all, they had to look at small numbers all day long and needed a functional and space-saving luminaire that produced good, uniform light.
In reference to this long history, designer Ron Gilad has named his reinterpretation of the Banker luminaire after a traditional investment bank. The Goldman table lamp from Flos takes up the classic lamp form and transfers it to modernity, while retaining central design elements.
Charging function, dimmable and brass body
While the exterior of the Flos Goldman table lamp is undoubtedly reminiscent of its role model, the technology inside is state-of-the-art: 42 LEDs provide uniform illumination of the work surface, while the lampshade protects against glare. On the underside, the light sources themselves are also covered by a diffuser, so that even direct light appears soft and glare-free.
A surprising feature is the USB port on the back, which allows most electronic devices to be easily charged at the Goldman light. The high-tech impression is underlined by the discreet touch switch, with which the work lamp from Flos can also be dimmed. Thanks to these features and its classically decorative appearance, the Flos Goldman naturally does not have to hide in the study, but can also set accents in other rooms.
The Goldman table lamp is available with brass body and green diffuser and in a Nichkel version with smoke grey diffuser.
