The Argand Lamp by Quentin de Coster references an old-school illuminator from days gone by. The design focuses on trying to modify the intensity of the illumination depending on how much is needed within a room.

According to DesignBoom, "the contemporary tabletop device revisits the mechanism of wick-lift by replacing it with a borosilicate glass cylinder incorporating an LED module composed of three strips within the confines of a pink gold plated brass bass." To adjust the brightness of the lamp, one simply has to turn the knob located on the side, and this slowly starts to cover up the light inside the glass, giving off the same effect as a lamp from the 18th century for anyone who is interested.
