Tidy Light

The way we arrange our desks has changed over the years, but there are two invariable demands: the need for light and the wish to store small office utensils. Jon van Hoof managed to combine them in ‘Tidy Light’. The lampshade is also a container for pens, Post-its, a stapler and more. When the lamp is pulled down, these things can be stored in the shade. Like a small crane it lifts the contents from desk to eye level. A smart hoisting system inside the foot ensures that the lamp doesn’t tip over, despite the changes in weight and position. Tidy Light adds a playful element to a clean-desk policy.
