After doing the same tasks over and over again for a long period of time without reprieve, our daily work can start to feel a little limiting. Knowing, though, that workplace aesthetics can be a powerful thing, we’ve rounded up a whimsical array of 10 creative desk lamp designs to illuminate your workspace and break the monotony just a bit. Pulling late nights in the office can feel less like an incarceration when there’s soft, warm light emanating from a cool, quirky desktop lamp instead of the glare of fluorescents overhead. Likewise, long hours spent in the same space can be infinitely more enjoyable when surrounded by beautiful — or at least aesthetically interesting — objects. Extra wiggle room for creative expression rarely results in negative impact on productivity; on the contrary, personalizing one’s space renders it more homelike and comfortable, influencing us to stay a little longer and be more inventive in our quest for excellence. So without further ado, let’s shed some light on things.
