Estate sale find: the 1965 Michael Lax-designed Lytegem desk lamp with adjustable chrome telescoping head. I found a cache of these from a lighting shop that was going out of business, and it is new in the original box from Lightolier. The color is "persimmon," a super chic dark pumpkin/Hermes blood orange. The head of the lamp swivels, and the telescoping arm moves side to side--not all around. I have been using one a bedside lamp and it's perfect. It's a great desk lamp that takes up very little space.

This is what the Lightolier website says of the lamp:

Designed for Lightolier in 1965 by Michael Lax, the Lytegem is part of the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art. The Lytegem has also been recognized by Jay Doblin as one of the 20th century's 100 great product designs.

it features: a hi-low switch for two levels of illumination, plus a Multigroove anti-glare band. It can be wall-mounted and has an adjustable telescoping arm to 15". A 12V, 25W automotive bulb is included.

I have photographed one of the lamps that I am using, the on I have available is in its original factory packaging and has never been removed. It comes with a light bulb too.

Excellent like new condition.

Convo me with any questions, and thanks for checking out my shop.
