The Polished Aluminum D’E-Light by Philippe Starck for Flos

Ma and Pa bakeries, boutiques, and pet stores are the way to go- meaning I hit up the huge, big box superstores only when the list of random necessities exceeds my post-it note. But in other ways, I’m all about the one-stop shop. In fact, I can’t get enough of trend for dual-purpose (or more) light fixtures - like the energy-efficient, LED task lamp known as D’E-light - that give me the option to be compulsively productive.

A Polished Aluminum LED Desk Lamp that Charges Your iPhone, iPad or iPod

Made by none other than Philippe Starck and produced by Flos, the credentials of the D’E-light alone could sweep the competition. While the style looks similar to the Piani lamp by the Bouroullec brothers that we saw most recently, the D’E-light LED task lamp features a built-in iPhone, iPad or iPod dock to adequately serve our every device charging need without the hassle of cluttering cords.

The Italian lighting manufacturer has recently introduced Starck’s light in a simple, gorgeous polished aluminum that features its USB socket for the device of your choice above the light diffuser. According to the Flos CEO, Piero Gandini, “It was only a matter of time before Philippe Starck turned his mind to such a popular, desirable and useful object as the iPad. The resulting creation satisfies our daily need for information, knowledge and entertainment while incorporating a radical yet extremely functional design.”

Philippe Starck describes his D’E-light desk lamp using the double meaning of illumination: “When the iPad, a source of information, becomes a source of light.”

About the Manufacturer: Flos is an Italian lighting company whose roots date back to the early 1960s. Experimenting in illumination alongside Ron Gilad, Philippe Starck and Konstantin Grcic, among other talented designers was their ticket to modern, cutting edge lighting design. Flos has made its reputation by collaborating with talented designers in creating some of the most cutting edge lighting designs within their international showrooms. Thanks to their push within energy-efficient lamp development, Flos has become a leader in the movement toward green lighting.
