designed by san francisco based firm box clever, the ‘fade task light’ works in an environment with it’s fluid and adaptable articulated arm. accompanied by high performance LED system, the intuitive dimmer and color temperature slider control on the iron base allows the light output to be precisely set to the color and luminosity. at the rear an integrated USB port in the base keeps mobile devices charged and ready to go. the ‘fade task light’ is available in four unique color and die cut pattern configurations.
