The EDI Desk Lamp Can Be Reconfigured to Best Suit Your Workstation

People find the bendable neck of desk lamps ideal for establishing the optimal direction of illumination. The EDI Desk Lamp is certainly flexible, but not in the same sense. The object comprises a collection of rather rigid components that are very open to adjustment.

The base of Tommaso Bistacchi's table light is a wooden block, available in either ash or walnut. This has been incised with nine holes for pens or pencils, a pair of slots for business cards or envelopes and two slits in the side where you insert the arm of the EDI Desk Lamp.

A colored strip of metal, bent in the middle, is embedded with a lightbulb on one end. This can be slipped into the block in one of four ways to help you angle bright beams according to preference.
